I am not depressed

Thursday, December 4, 2008 at 15:09 | Posted in health, web tests | 4 Comments

I am not mentally depressed and my statistical chance to get depressed during the next 12 months is lower than average. That is what I learned from this test which, unlike most other web tests, is scientifically compiled and can be regarded as serious.

About Us

The predictD research group is made up of mental health professionals and academics from Europe and South America who undertook research into predicting risk of depression.  The study was led by Professors Michael King and Irwin Nazareth in the Research Departments of Mental Health Sciences and Primary Care and Population Health at University College London, and was funded principally by a grant from the Vth Framework of the European Commission’s Scientific Research Programme.

The algorithm has been tested on 6000 patients in Great Britain, Spain, Portugal, the Netherlands, Slovenia and Estonia during regular visits to their GP’s . Since Finland was not one of the options, I entered Estonia as my country of residence. It is geographically closest to me and culturally much closer than my actual country of residence.

This is what I learned about my present condition. (I did actually not learn anything, let us say that the test confirmed what I already knew.)

And this is my prediction for the next 12 months.

Not worried at all. 🙂

  1. Rather similar level of points for me: “… is 4.257%, as compared to the average chance of 7.73% in the European countries in which the instrument was developed.”

  2. Just wondering where that 0,007 % came from. 😉

  3. A minor personality disorder? All good ok, except the fact that it is not minor in my case 🙂

    Or the James Bond aspect of my psyche ( .007)

  4. Just trust the algorithm, 0,007 % is not much.
