Self Assessment: Gaming, Social Media and Device Addiction

This self-assessment is designed to help you identify key indicators of addiction and dysfunction raise awareness about negative, escalatory or cyclical patterns. It is not intended as a clinical diagnostic tool.

Do I have a Problem with Gaming, Social Media and Device Addiction?

The rise of technology has resulted in new and detrimental addictive behaviours, including internet addiction, screen addiction, device addiction, phone addiction, social media addiction, video gaming addiction or gaming disorder.

Behavioural addictions such as these can inflict significant negative impacts on individuals’ lives, relationships and finances. While moderate engagement doesn’t rise to being a clinical issue, when our behaviour becomes obsessive, compulsive or escalatory, issues can arise. This self-assessment is designed to help raise your awareness to potential negative consequences.

As you read each of the following statements, take your time to think about each answer, then tick the box if you believe it applies to you. Only you will see the results of this test, so take the opportunity to be completely honest with yourself. Remember, minimising and denying behaviours and consequences is a symptom of device addiction.

If you’d rather undertake a free, confidential, tailored assessment over the phone — or would like to discuss your results — our team is available seven days a week on 1800 063 332 or contact us here.

All responses are protected by patient confidentiality. Your answers to individual questions will not be stored or saved.

Take A Self-Assessment

The goal of our self-tests is not to provide you with a diagnosis for yourself or for someone you care about. Instead, they are an opportunity for you to better understand how a behaviour might be impacting upon your life or the life of your family. Use these tests to enhance your awareness of what the problem might be.

These tests should be answered honestly in order to provide accurate insight and are a chance for you to reflect upon the current situation.
