I decided to take the Sanity Score quiz. Here is my score. Total scores range from 0 to 288, while subscores range from 0 to 100.

  • Total score 95
  • General Coping 61
  • Life Events 38
  • Depression 38
  • Anxiety 58
  • Phobias 42
  • Self-Esteem 50
  • Eating Disorders 20
  • Schizophrenia 15
  • Dissociation 33
  • Mania 30
  • Sexual Issues 25
  • Relationship Issues 0
  • Alcohol 0
  • Drugs 0
  • Physical Issues 33
  • Smoking Issues 0
  • Gambling Issues 0
  • Technology Issues 25
  • Obsessions/Compulsions 44
  • Posttraumatic Stress 42
  • Borderline Traits 50

Of course it was indicated that I have major issues with anxiety and some with obsessive/compulsive symptoms. I also was said to have minor depressive symptoms, but they were only on the border of real depression. I tend to consider this an overestimation due to issues with self-esteem, sleep and fatigue which are unrelated to mood. More surprising was that it was also indicated I have quite a few bipolar traits. I do have some mood swings, but those tend to be reactive and not at all classic mania/depression episodes.

I do have to say I consider some categories to be quite narrowly defined. For example, dissociation was only defined by dissociative amniesia, while depersonalization, dissociative identity, etc. are not considered. In some categories, like "sexual issues" hyper and hypoactivity were considered in the same department, so you'd be really strange if you scored 100 on them.

I do think my Sanity Score is kept relatively good by the fact that I don't smoke, don't drink, don't use drugs, don't gamble, and am in a wonderufl relationship. :)
