Gaming Disorder? - A Survey To Check:
A week Ago Who - World Health Organisation has classified that "Gaming Disorder" is a Disease. Although the gaming world and gamers strongly disagree. We should at least give it serious thought when we hear about Gamers dying due to long gaming hours. It is not regular news which we read daily. But Recently a 16-year-old boy from India died cause of playing a game for 6 hrs. We also heard similar news before one month ago. As gamers, we should take responsibility for the actions which we commit.
Who Defines a Gaming Disorder as "a pattern of gaming behavior characterized by impaired control over gaming." The idea is that gaming has to take an "increasing priority" over other activities in your life even if you notice the negative side effects. Someone diagnosed with a Gaming Disorder will have severe impairment of personal, familial, social, educational, or occupational areas of their life due to their gaming habits—but these consequences have to be evident for at least 12 months to qualify. So, basically, have you noticed that gaming is taking over your life in the past 12 months to the detriment of your work, health, or relationships?.
So A group of Academics has put together a survey for gamers like ourselves to determine whether we have this disorder or not. This survey is not a Diagnosis, it just gives you a wide view of your gaming Habits and your personality. The survey starts with some questions for 10 mins and you will be asked a question to continue the survey, We strongly recommend you to continue the survey for another 10 mins.
In the End, it will give you a score the maximum is 20. It's just a score to analyze your gaming habits and you can also know where you stand now.
Our Score was 13/20 as we are in the gaming industry. We tend to play a lot and Of course, Analyze the games. LOL. GG.
