    Default Hypochondria test

    http://www.4degreez.com/misc/hypochondria_test.html

    My results: Very high

    Well I already knew that...but I was wondering how other people will score.

    If you scored high I have a question:

    Do you have parents with anxiety? Did your parents worry about your health when you were little and take you to doctors for no rational reason?
    My mother used to get soooooooooo worried about my health, and now I worry about my health. Quite ridiculous.
    I wonder if they're related.

    Well, I took the test didn't I? Can't pass any sort of physical or mental health-related test without taking it.

    High, of course.

    I would think mine would be low, since my relatives have hypochondria to the point where it is debilitating to them, but I do consider myself to be a hypochondriac.

    Your Hypochondria Rating: High
    Your rating suggests that you are likely a hypochondriac. You are plagued by fears about your body's well-being, and this causes much undue anxiety. You would do well to seek professional diagnosis and treatment, so that you can overcome this psychological condition and live a much happier life.

    Yeah, no doubt. I know I am lol.

    Your Hypochondria Rating: Very Low

    Your rating indicates that hypochondria is not even on your radar. Far from being a hypochondriac, you almost never worry about your health or suffer the anxiety that defines this disorder.

    I'm not surprised. I don't see my doctor unless I feel like dying.

    Your Hypochondria Rating: Low
    It is unlikely that you are a hypochondriac. You may occassionally fret over your health, but this is not abnormal. Health fears do not dominate your day and cause unnecessary anxiety, and your outlook in this area appears well within the normal range.

    Haha...interesting.

    I got "high", which doesn't surprise me. I've long suspected it, but I'm pretty good at hiding it. :P

    I dated an INTJ guy and I confided in him that I thought I was a hypochondriac. He said that he felt like the antithesis of a hypochondriac and that it could actually be a problem because when he had a serious health problem, he'd never notice.

    Looks like there's a pattern here!

    Ne by definition has hypochondria as side effects. Although this isn't supported by empirical data.

    It's the conflict between Ne and Si. In MBTI terms.

    This was my case... I wonder if they're related.
    My parents were polar opposites in that regard. Mom was the "Walk it off; you're fine!" or "A 'belly ache' is no reason to stay home from school. It's either I see barf, blood or bones, or it's off to school with you!" And over the years, I've learned not to tell my father ANYTHING or his only response will be, "Call the doctor!1!11!!" D: D:

    "Dad, do we have any antacids?"
    "Call the doctor. You might have an ulcer like I did."
    "No, dad. I just ate a burrito."
    Once, he actually told me he wasn't going to talk to me again until I made an appointment.

    But then again, I don't think I really count. I actually do have health issues. I ignored them for a while (like my mom would) but then it got bad enough that I wanted to call the doctor, and ever since, I've been [too] worried about my health (like my dad.)

    So, erm ... make of that what you will?

    OH! But weirdly enough, the way each of my parents dealt with MY health was totally opposite to how they each deal with their OWN. Dad could chop his finger off with a knife and "it's just a scratch" or mom could have a headache and she thinks she must have brain cancer.

    This is weird. I've never thought about it before.
