• Hi! And welcome to my Effective Are You Bipolar Test. I decided to write this after taking an Are You Bipolar Test which didn't say I was bipolar even though I actually am. Doing this I don't mean to offend in any way the author of that test! I just want to try and see if I can improve this kind of test, if I can write a more effective one. I hope so! Please note that I follow both the DSM-IV criteria and my own experience. However, keep in mind that this is only a test and I am not a doctor: this can serve you as a guideline in order to decide whether or not to see a psychiatrist, but please do remember only a doctor can diagnose you, not I or my test! In the end, I want to remind you that if you are bipolar or depressed or whatever else, you are NOT insane or freaky or whatever ignorant people might call you!!! Now, off you go!
