Oh boy. I spotted this Internet addiction test because I was um, surfing the Internet, and oh my, is it illuminating! Provided by the Center For Online Addiction, the addiction test is just a quick battery to see if your constant refresh button finger is anything that needs to be taken seriously.
I definitely started out thinking "Me?! I don't have a problem" to "Umm, these things sound familiar" when I started reading the first questions, like: "How often do you find that you stay online longer than you intended?" Had to click 'Always' for that one.
And doesn't everyone agree with "How often do you fear that life without the Internet would be boring, empty, and joyless?" OK, so maybe not joyless, but my quality of life definitely would have been diminished if I'd never seen Justin Timberlake's SNL mother-of-all viral videos.
Not to detract from the seriousness of the issue, though, so take the test if you're curious. I'm curious about how many people it confirms an addiction for, especially since an Illinois facility is offering rehab and China considered it so bad they opened a Summer camp.
To see what the test told me, just
"You are an average online user. You may surf the Web a bit too long at times, but you have control over your usage."
On that note, I think I'll take a snack break. Talk to some three-dimensional people.
