Internet addiction

I'm reading a (Kindle) reference tome on Internet Addiction. It's quite an interesting topic with lots of factors involved.
There's a fairly well known test where you can assess yourself. One copy is located here. if you want to give it a try.
I am (ahem) reportedly "normal".  Grin
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Internet addiction

for me the questions are worded that i can answer them truthfully and get a low score, however i'm sure if i was assessed it would be different lol

Re: Internet addiction

Score 23  Wink  but such loaded questions.For example
Q   ' How often do you neglect household chores to spend more time on-line?' 
A  I never do household chores ( the wifes' choice, not mine.* ) except put the loo seat down - why do we do that?
*  Apparently I put the washing-up away in the wrong places, use the vacuum wrong, miss things when I dust (should move things and not dust round them, though why as dust cannot get underneath them) etc etc.....
