• Hi! And welcome to my Genuine Depression Test. I've seen so many people on this site talking about being depressed when they actually mean they're feeling a bit down or whatever. That really bugs me so I figured I'd make a test to determine whether you really are depressed. This is actually the Beck Depression Inventory and is the tool used by psychologists to determine whether a patient is suffering from depression. If you think you are clinically depressed then please see your doctor and get some help. Now, on with the test!
