Screening Tool: Technology Addiction (aka internet addiction, cyberaddiction)
This test is the Internet Addiction Diagnostic Questionnaire (IADQ) and is designed to provide a quick screening of whether you might have problems with technology and internet addiction. However, no test is 100% accurate. No matter what your score is, you should seek help from a health professional if you have any concerns about yourself or your loved ones.
