Are you addicted to the internet?
« on: March 19, 2007, 01:23:58 am »
Your score: 65

You are experiencing occasional or frequent problems because of the Internet. You should consider their full impact on your life.

No surprise, really. In fact, I thought it would be worse. But is it the internet's fault, or RL's fault?

I'm a bit surprised that I have a higher score than David, seen that he has 3,444 posts on here already, compared to me with 765..  ???

Either the test is no good, or you lied, David!  ;D

43-You are an average on-line user. You may surf the Web a bit too long at times, but you have control over your usage.

And only because of fan fiction. I don't surf-it's here or LiveJournal reading. I think it's the staying up til 5 in the morning ready that is tweaking my score...
and maybe missing the gym a couple of times or possibly blowing off my friends-hmmmmm....

I had 45...You are an average on-line user. You may surf the Web a bit too long at times, but you have control over your usage.

I think the score would have been significantly higher if I'd taken this test a year ago :).

I had an average score too! I thinnk this research was put together by Bill Gates LOL!

One thing I answered "Always" to was "Do you block out upsetting experiences with thoughts of the Internet?" Yes, I do. It's the only way I survive!!

Too much to do. . .I don't have time to get old!

Well, when that happens you have to don your "heavy boots" (like in Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close") and slog on thru!!

Speaking personally, I find the best way to contend with unpleasant experiences on the Internet, is to just pretend they didn't happen. I mean, they only happened in cyberspace; ergo, they didn't actually happen at all, in reality. It works for me. But then again, I always have been a fantasist!  ::)  ;)  :-*  :laugh:
