Writing and interacting online can be quite addictive and those of us who write for multiple sites or have accounts in multiple social media sites spend quite a lot of time online.
A friend once told me about an ‘internet addiction’ test we can take online to see how addicted we are to the internet .
Well I took the test and the prognosis was:
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.”
Since I scored 47, I think I barely escaped the next level which would have put me into the addicted category described below:
50 -79 points: You are experiencing occasional or frequent problems because of the Internet. You should consider their full impact on your life.
I wonder how many of us Virilyans fall into the red hot danger zone:
80 – 100 points: 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.
Take this test to see if our online habits has begun to take their toll on our physical, mental and emotional health and relationships with others.
