    Same :lol:

    Some of the questions seem to have more to do with pessimism rather than depression though.

    25 - moderate to severe. I'm a pretty depressive person though especially when stressed

    I agree you are right, probably not! Can you propose away of being more vague? Or is it just a case of visiting the local GP?

    It's just so few questions and it covers so little ground.

    I got 18 but am at a bit of a crossroads (as are many after graduation) so am unsure what my future holds- which I think contributed a lot to the score.

    I'm offended.

    It said I was normal. Now I may not be depressed, but normal?

    13, tbf I wouldn't call myself depressed. I'm rarely if ever sad, instead I just very often have a feeling that my life is aimless.

    ****ty test. Everyone is slightly depressed according to it if they think about death... what if it's for scientific reasons?

    Losing interest in some things and gaining interest in others is not a sign of depression. And many of the other questions could be attributed to real life situations rather than to depression.

    The test assumes that anyone who takes it has a bright future, and that if they disagree then they're ****ing depressed.

    I scored 8, but having been moderately to severely depressed in the past I don't think that this 'tool' should be taken at all seriously and think it could even be a bit insulting to people who suffer from depression.

    Like so many other things it scores depression based on feeling low or glum. Someone not having a good day would probably score badly on this test and it just has no level of accuracy at all IMO.

    There seems to be so much willingness on this site to latch on to this or that problem. Asperger syndrome is another one - seems to somehow be in much higher concentration on TSR than in the real world. People wanting to be 'special'.
    Nah, I actually think that any online forum is likely to have more asperger's people than in the outside world considering how social they are...

    19. What i expected.
    But can i point out, people may not have the same understanding of " somewhat" and " moderately", so may not be that accurate?
