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:
