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.
