Okay, okay. So we all are (a bit) internet addicted. But here you can actually find out how bad that addiction is! So, be honest to yourself and show us the score you got!

I got a surprisingly low 31, which means:

20 - 49 points: 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.

Woohoo! That's a lot better than I expected. Come to think of it, internet usage doesn't interfere with the things I have to do (well, except for graduating, but I would have found some other excuse for not graduating), and I just happen to have too much free time!
Still trying to cut down in the internet use, though! :)

I got 30

Come to think of it, internet usage doesn't interfere with the things I have to do (well, except for graduating, but I would have found some other excuse for not graduating) Same here... especially the graduation part :lol: But like you said... if it's not Internet, it's something else... basically anything :lol: The reason I'm online so much is because I have a lot of friends 'here'. But when I'm on a holiday or something, I don't even miss it all that much, so I think I'm safe ;)

Oh I already took this before. I think I was a proud 85% addict. Something like: net addiction seriusly affects your life (btw. not in a good way), blah, blah.

Nothing I didn't know, especially considering the fact that i become anxious withouth the comp, want to smoke (although I don't smoke), sometiomes shake and stuff like that.

Guys who are not satisfied with results: I think you answered the test wrong. Or it is correct and you just think that it's wrong.
Are you sure that it's your computer that made you fail (not graduate, as in the case of Purple Rainbow)? Are you sure that if you're not using the comp, you're not reading a book, instead of studying? Or not doing anything. I'm VERY addicted, it's true. But I'm LAZY as well, which stops me from studying. My parents get mad a lot, due to my grades, and kick me off teh comp. I still don't study.

Your Internet usage is causing significant problems in your life. You should evaluate the impact of the Internet on your life and address the problems directly caused by your Internet usage.


- EXCUSE ME, but you're not the boss of me.........stupid test.

everybody is surprised. either we're all misjudging our internet behaviour or this test is made by and for addicts to justify their habit.

43. No surprise for me.

"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." It fits perfectly... ;)

No you're not! You're misunderstanding it.

Being an addict means that you can't help but think about the comp all the time you're not online. It means that you miss the computer when you're talking to people in real life. It means that a lot of things in your life get screwed up because you're using the comp, instead of doing them. Atleast that's what I have... And you... You probably even have friends in real life! ;)

Guess it doesn't suprise me... I've been accessing the fact that I have no life. I don't have any friends who live around me, so the only ones I really have are online :hug: to you all.

During our pyschology lecture at uni we had to watch a video on exercise addiction, was very interesting to see how bad these people were addicted. It wasnt just males too, there were a few females who had to exercise 6 hours a day every day, and without it they said (they couldnt hear the surroundings, felt very anxious, felt dizzy etc). I read a true article from a guy in korea i think it was, he played online games for a couple of days constantly and he actually died

That doesn't surprise me, internet isn't important to me, there aren't many things I like on internet, besides this forum of course ;)

I got the exact same score... Must be because we share b-days, Martijn! ;)
The result scares me a little though... :eek:
