Thanks for sharing your score. As I understand it, 89 is a pretty-good score! I typically score around 100.

@Skeezyks

That's awesome (I think) that you score around 100. I'm not sure what the number means though. Does the higher number mean worsening of conditions, or better maintenance of conditions?

I've seen people post about scores over 100, or maybe they were scores in the negatives such as -100 or greater (toward the negative). It's hard to tell what these scores mean, even though I read my individual results.

My PTSD is definitely accurate. My bordering on OCD is probably accurate, though I have discussed this with my treatment teams in the past and they don't think I have this, and quite frankly, neither do I. I do like things in order, and I'm afraid of contracting yet another disease so I am a bit of a germaphobe (I take my shoes off in my home, but that is also a cultural thing because my mom is Japanese and it's tradition to do that, so it is really both; but I also spray the bottom of my shoes with Lysol once in a while, and definitely before putting them away in the closet for shoes and other items). I wash my hands a lot, and I use wipes when out and about, but I don't go overboard and remind myself constantly that I'm minimizing, not completely preventing. So, yeah, I'm not diagnosed with OCD, but I am cognizant more often than not about trace contamination, communicable diseases, germs, etc. That said, I still smoke, and I go days without showering or grooming. My CFS makes it impossible for me to have the energy (as of yet) to do everything I want to in a day.

The rest of my issues are all minor concerns that peak only when under distress.

@lillib Well... I don't know a lot about the technicalities of the Sanity Score test. My understanding has been that a score under 50 is essentially "normal". And anything under 100 is pretty good as well. Above 100, the higher the score, the more of concern the particular subscale is. But I may well have that wrong. So don't quote me on it. To my knowledge there is no such thing as a negative score in the Sanity Test. Here's a link to an article, from PC's archives, that provides just a wee bit of information on the test:

@Skeezykes - sorry, I quoted you on that above, LOL, but seriously - thank yo for the link. I will look at it soon.

So the higher the score, the more abnormal - maybe. Okie dokie. It is what it is. I'm sure my score changes and fluctuates, but I'll read the article to see what the Sanity Score/Scale means more, and if it can be used more than once. If not, I'm a humble 89. I'm not alone. We're all in this together.

I wished I were under 50, but an 89 is about right - at least for the day that I took the test. LOL.

Default Re: 89

My only concern when I was taking the Sanity test was that of dissociation versus psychosis (e.g., hearing voices).

I declined to admit hearing voices on the test, which I'm sure would have meant something different to researchers looking for psychosis. Apparently, I shouldn't be taking the test if I am already accustomed to working in research as a research assistant, but I did try to answer the question with as much integrity as I could. It's hard, however, when I know that I hear internalized voices from alternate personalities, and whether or not to answer in the affirmative on questions regarding voices because there appears to be a difference (or maybe even an overlap) between psychosis (hearing voices externally) and dissociation (hearing voices internally). Or, perhaps psychosis involves either/or, where voices could be heard internally or externally - for that, I don't know.

Also, are there any domains about dissociation on this test?

What about fluctuating integration, or not fully integrated dissociators who fluctuate daily from dissociation to non-dissociation?

Perhaps the test doesn't measure dissociation at all, which is okay. It's just hard for me to figure out how to answer questions about hearing voices when I consider today or the last week only, or when I consider what they are asking for. I was so used to denying this question for years, so please forgive me. But I'd rather be honest now so that whomever is analyzing the data will know that maybe I'm not the only one with this condition who answers similarly (or maybe even differently) on tests that ask questions about hearing voices.

I just wanted to post this somewhere.

I would retake the test, but I'm not sure if that's allowed. I'd also rather wait a little while to retake the test, so that I forget what was asked on the test before retaking it.
