    4. "Somewhat" not wanting to do the dishes counts I guess...

    Yeah. Everyone deals with depression in their own way. Thusly, this test is worthless.

    I, for example, scored a '20' when in reality, I probably should have scored around '50'.

    But I don't deal with depression by letting everything slide. My sadness quickly converts into anger fueling my drive to get work/chores done.

    I would discuss history with you, if only I wasn't such a novice at it.

    Or, at least compared to you I'm a novice. Compared to ordinary people I know, I'm like some sort super-genius or something.

    Apparently I am suffering from mild to moderate depression, yet I know that I'm not. For one, being sleep-less is not a sign of depression, it's a sign of favour towards being nocturnal (due to giving the impression that I'm staying up longer than I really am, yet also sleeping longer).

    Same here. I scored 19, mainly on my sleeping. If I'm borderline depressed there's a great future in psychology. I'm actually a fairly happy-go-lucky personality. I wonder if 10% of people are completely depression-free according to that survey.

    Did I not describe a cognitive problem?

    The chemical imbalance thing is an excuse used to peddle prescription drugs.

    Shekwan: What you described was a huge generalization of a varied disorder. Scientists still struggle to find a real "cause" for depression, though a lot of it appear to be genetic.

    1) Not really. "self centeredness" isn`t a cognitive process.
    2) No it isn`t.

    Being sleepless can be a symptom of depression, but isn`t in itself indicative of depression. Same with lethargy or loss of appetite.

    Enter the symptom of a cold or flu into that survey and it`ll order the valium for you.

    Well maybe if you actually got on #nes I would be more than willing to talk history with you :D

    My score was 10, but I think most of that comes from demands that I place very heavily on myself and a subconscious which constantly tells me I am inadequate or generally a failure.
