Hey I posted this on the psych board, but thought it might be useful for those who might currently be having problems with medications working effectively.
There might be more going on than depression or anxiety if meds don't work after repeated trials. Especially the ahedonia, lack of motivation complaints I've seen over and over (imo). People post all the time about those symptoms and I've read time and time again those symptoms could be caused by deeper psychological issues, whether or not they caused biological effects.
Anyway, you can take what you want out of it if you see some usefulness in the test or discard what you do not think is helpful in your search for wellness.
You don't have to sign up or give an email or anything to get the results of the test...it's a really interesting test to see what your possible neurotic tendencies may be:
Very High: Dependent
High: Schizotypal, Avoidant, Obsessive-Compulsive
Moderate: Paranoid, Borderline, Histrionic
Low: Schizoid, Antisocial, Narcissistic
I was surprised to see Dependent at the top. When I was answering the questions, I didn't see how my answers would indicate a higher level of dependent traits as opposed to other traits, although I recently learned that I had some dependent issues since being in psychotherapy.
If I took this test a couple of years ago, the results would be much different...and ten years ago, I think, I probably would have been higher on narcissistic traits and low on dependent, avoidant, and OCD...and nothing high or very high...But I answered the test according to how I've felt over the past year only.
This isn't a diagnostic thing, but I was thinking of the results comparing with what I had learned about myself and psychology in general and it seems pretty accurate the more I thought about it and look into those characteristics. At least it seems pretty accurate how I've been lately in not being successful in how I've been coping with high stress.
Maybe it would be useful for others to take. I'd be interested in what others think of their results. I'd taken similar tests online, alot of them are crap, but think this is the best one I've seen so far.

It's fine to let people here know, but to consolidate the discussion, I'd like to redirect this thead back to Psycho-Babble Psychology. Here's a link:
Please do feel free to continue this discussion there, and in general to explore the other boards here.
That will be considered a different thread, however, so if you'd like to be notified by email of follow-ups to it, you'll need to request that there. Thanks,
This is the end of the thread.
