Nicked from Claum:

You have reached level 16 on the Goldberg scale.

You have some symptoms of depression. Some of these symptoms normally occur in many people. It is difficult to say whether you will need treatment or not, but it is worth speaking to your doctor about how you feel.


Hmm... I'm sure it's all very accurate and stuff, but the scale is still bullshit. It turns out that you are depressed if you have the slightest bit of self doubt - I mean please... The whole thing seems to exaggerate every single little problem somebody might have, and conclude at the end that everybody but the most emotionally blind must be depressed. How nice....

Plus, I'm not as well adjusted as the test would like to believe - it's merely not oriented to my particular brand of fuck-up ;o)

Re: You have reached level 61 on the Goldberg scale.

*lol*

Still, 61... That's a lot.. ;o)

I agree its crap!

I did that test a few days back and although I answered in a way which would lead any sane person to believe there is not on ounce of depression in my life it still suggested I visit a doc to be safe!

Shite test!

It's obviously engineered to make doctors richer by increasing the number of people who go to them :o)

Yes - and "the mob" may well be fooled - but not me!

*reaches for phone to make appointment*

Psychological Scale/Quizes are pretty much bunk. For that matter, as someone who came very close to going into the field of Psychology....Psychology is mostly bunk, it is a Modern form of Fundamentalist Religion a Cult of Victorian Reductionism mildly elaborated with an Edwardian/Leave it to Beaver ethos, and it's aim is to turn the individual into a functioning cog in a malfunctioning society. The standard reference of diagnostics here in the states is rather different from that in Europe, and they are both a load of White Western Middleclass Superstition posturing as "the science of mind" whatever that means. I remember working for a Psychiatrist in Florida, Dr. Mohammed Saleh. He used to go off on long rants about the unscientific hocus pocus involved in psychology. Of course, if you told him "Hey, doc, some days I'm happy and other days I'm kind of down," he'd label you a manic-depressive, give you some drugs and send you on your way. So, psychiatry is another sham religion..it is neuro-chemistry perverted into pop-culture pharmecology with the goal of giving everyone pills to keep them from experiencing any emotional fluctuations. Brilliant. Happiness is mandatory. Questions are a Burden to Others; Answers, a prison for oneself.
