The Holmes-Rahe Life Stress Inventory
In 1967, psychiatrists Thomas Holmes and Richard Rahe examined over 5000 patient’s medical records to determine whether stressful events cause illnesses. Patients ranked a list of 43 life events based on a relative score. Each event, called a Life Change Unit (LCU), had a different ‘weight’ for stress. More events mean a higher score. The higher the score, and the larger the weight of each event, the more likely the patient would become ill. Their results were published as the Social Readjustment Rating Scale (SRRS), now commonly known as the Holmes and Rahe Stress Scale. Subsequent validation supported the links between stress and illness.
The Post Traumatic Stress Disorders Checklist (PCL) is particularly useful for self-assessment. The PCL should take five minutes or less to complete. Again, while this test will not diagnose PTSD, it can help you determine the nature and extent of your symptoms and whether you should consider seeking advice from your doctor or a mental health care professional.
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder Test
Obsessions are unwanted ideas, images or impulses that intrude on thinking against your wishes and efforts to resist them. They usually involve themes of harm, risk and danger. Common obsessions are excessive fears of contamination; recurring doubts about danger, extreme concern with order, symmetry, or exactness; fear of losing important things.
Procrastination is very common among college students, with 95% to 99% of students identifying themselves as procrastinators. It has been found to negatively affect the examination scores and grades, and increases the chance of stress, depression, and course failure.
