The main symptoms of internet addiction include preoccupation with the Internet, excessive time of internet activity to achieve satisfaction, repeated unsuccessful efforts to control Internet use, negative impact of additive internet use on real life relationships, and use of internet in order to escape from real life problems or to relieve negative emotions like depression and anxiety.
The Internet Addiction Test (IAT) is an online self-assessment tool, which is based on the main symptoms of internet addiction. Since the test is an initial evaluation scale, it’s not designed to make a diagnosis, but only could guide whether you need further examination. If your test score indicates that, you have an Internet addiction, but your further examination, which is conducted by a medical professional, does not reveal any, the test was mistaken in your case and provided a false positive result.
