    The test calculates real results. In the case that someone displays a tendency to have an addiction to gaming, we do recommend installing a web filter. It is proven that filtering the Internet and blocking access to Internet gaming can help someone to gain control of their compulsive need to play online. For example, by preventing access to the Internet during late night hours, a gamer can help ensure that he gets the sleep he needs.

    You can actually submit without providing your personal information and you will receive the test results on screen.
