December 3, 2007 7:02pm CST
Here is a link to a 20 question quiz that will help you determine if you are addicted. This is what I found about my internet usage: 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. What will your outcome be?

I scored in the 30's which means that I am an average user. That's comforting to know.

Very interesting. I came to 47, which said: "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 am happy to say, Elusive, that I came out with the same results. I have been guilty in the past of staying online too long, but with a bit of self-control I managed to put things into the proper perspective.

Hello Elusive Butterfly. I am addicted to the Internet even without doing the survey. I know myself as I love to stay long online for many hours if I happen to have a rest at home. That is the very thing that I love to do and most of the time is mylotting. lol. Thanks for the link, dear friend. Good day.

wow, surprisingly i got "You are an average on-line user...", same as you. i figured i would've gotten something along the lines of "you are utterly addicted to the internet, seek help immediately!" hahaha.

39 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. This quiz is only accurate if you are honest with yourself. LOL

I got a 33, I thought I would have a higher score and I was honest answering the questions too. I am an average user of the internet.

I took it, and I also scored average. I was thinking I might be addicted, but I guess I'm not that bad. I can go for long periods of time without having to get on the internet, but once I'm involved with something, it's hard to get off. Lately I've been spending a lot of time shopping for Christmas, so I'm actually doing something useful and saving gas money and time that I would have spent running around the stores.

Well, I thought I would have gotten the worst one, but I got the middle one. Here are my results: You are experiencing occasional or frequent problems because of the internet. You should consider their full impact on your life. It's still kind of bad though, isn't it...

I scored only 13. It is a useful message and I have reviewed my practice about the correctness or otherwise.Thank you for this self assessment exercise.

I just took the quiz and got a 55: You are experiencing occasional or frequent problems because of the Internet. You should consider their full impact on your life. I actually feel I am worse than that- but I think I will just go with what the test says!!

No, but I think sometimes even though I don't want to open qq, I open it. perhaps, it is a kind of addiction.
