I came across this
via an article at heise.de
. The article is short and so is the test.
However, what I learned: there is a huge difference between doing something "a lot", "extremely often", or even "excessively" and being sick in a pathological sense. That is, just because you met only 4 criteria doesn't mean you are not an addict, but if you met 5 there is a high chance you should seek help.
Don't ask me though, I am just posting this for the curious inclined. If you are sick and feel I made of fun of you and your addiction what can I say besides "you are sick!"
Personally I scored 0.5:
kind of compulsion to use the Internet
I got rid of my only major addiction when I gave away my tv. Best thing I ever did...
