THE FRAUDULENT STUPIDITY OF PSYCHIATRIC BIPOLAR QUESTIONNAIRES CAUSING BIASED MISDIAGNOSING!!!

Doctor and young woman patient talking to each other.

Read this questionnaire and then find out why most psychiatrists are non-scientific quacks who don’t know what they are talking about and should be shut down as a valid profession in society except in the drug treatment of violent offenders in jail.

Not only is the included 12 question questionnaire unscientific because it doesn’t accurately determine the frequency of the behaviors mentioned or how many times a day, week, or month the behavior exists but it is subject to extreme bias if the answerer lies and answers “very much” on all the 12 questions.

This questionnaire is definitely not proof that someone has a bipolar personality disorder and is the reason why so many relatively normal humans are misdiagnosed as needing drug treatment for mere social deviance from normative behavior.

It is obvious that there is an emotional problem if you intensely cry and laugh five to ten times a day, or if you can’t concentrate on your work because of intense emotional feelings existing five to ten times a day which pop into your head spontaneously and then just as quickly subsides and this goes on for weeks at a time. The questionnaire does not determine if this is the case.

If your very intense emotions are interfering with the quality and quantity of your work and you are on the verge of being fired then you may not need a sedative drug but a new line of work instead. The questionnaire does not determine if this is the case.

Bipolar Screening Quiz

By Ivan Goldberg, M.D.

Use this brief, time-saving questionnaire to help you determine
if you may need to see a mental health professional for diagnosis
and treatment of bipolar disorder. 

Instructions: The items below refer to how you have felt and behaved over much of your life. If you have usually been one way, and have recently changed, your responses should reflect how you have usually been. In order for the results of this quiz to be most accurate, you should be 18 or older and have had at least one episode of depression.

(What in the world does ONE episode of depression mean? That you had a very bad day on the job and got nothing done so you felt depressed!)

I am a  year old Female / Male

1. At times I am much more talkative or speak much faster than usual.

Not at all
Just a little
Somewhat
Moderately
Quite a lot
Very much

How frequently does this happen? Once a day, week, or month because we are all more talkative depending on the circumstances. What in the world does “at times” mean? At times I am very much talkative. Aren’t we all at times very much talkative?

 

2. There have been times when I was much more active or did many more things than usual.

Not at all
Just a little
Somewhat
Moderately
Quite a lot
Very much

 

How many times have you done more things than usual? Once a day, week, or month because we all are more active some days than others. There “have been times” when I have been “very much” more active. Haven’t we all!

 

 

3. I get into moods where I feel very ‘speeded-up’ or irritable.

Not at all
Just a little
Somewhat
Moderately
Quite a lot
Very much

 

How many times have you felt more irritable? Once a day, week, or month because we all have more irritable times some days than others. I get into moods when I am very much irritable when I am trying to do something important and someone is constantly interfering.

 

4. There have been times when I have felt both high (elated) and low (depressed) at the same time.

Not at all
Just a little
Somewhat
Moderately
Quite a lot
Very much

 

This is impossible biologically to have two moods at the same time so this question should be totally eliminated from the questionnaire!

 

5. I have been much more interested in sex than usual.

Not at all
Just a little
Somewhat
Moderately
Quite a lot
Very much

 

When we get hot over the opposite sex we are very much more interested in sex and it is a symptom of normal people not illness. This question is irrelevant!

 

6. My self-confidence ranges from great self-doubt to equally great overconfidence.

Not at all
Just a little
Somewhat
Moderately
Quite a lot
Very much

How many times have we been more confident than at other times when we feel no doubt? We all frequently  experience great self-doubt when we don’t know what to do and have great doubt about the outcome.

It depends on the circumstances and is not a symptom of illness. Once again, do you feel that way once a day, week, or month?

 

 

Bipolar Screening Test
Part 2

Instructions: Continue to answer the questions below describing how you have felt and behaved over much of your life. If you have usually been one way, and have recently changed, your responses should reflect how you have usually been.

7. There have been GREAT variations in the quantity or quality of my work.

Not at all
Just a little
Somewhat
Moderately
Quite a lot
Very much

 

How many times has the quality or quantity of your work changed? Once a day, week, or month because we all have experienced bad work days and good ones the next. If you do have erratic work habits then it is a result of an inability to concentrate and the question should be asked about ability to concentrate on the work and not the indirect question which this is.

 

8. For no apparent reason I sometimes have been VERY angry or hostile.

Not at all
Just a little
Somewhat
Moderately
Quite a lot
Very much

 

We all feel very angry or hostile “sometimes” when confronted with rude or bad people in our lives so this is definitely not a sign of illness.

 

9. I have periods of mental dullness and other periods of very creative thinking.

Not at all
Just a little
Somewhat
Moderately
Quite a lot
Very much

 

Creative thinking is rare in people so being mentally dull is the fate of most people. Once again, how frequently does this swing from mental dullness occur? Once a day, week, or month?

 

10. At times I am greatly interested in being with people and at other times I just want to be left alone with my thoughts.

Not at all
Just a little
Somewhat
Moderately
Quite a lot
Very much

 

We all are interested in being with people sometimes when we feel lonely and at other times we just want to be left alone. It is not a sign of mental illness.

 

11. I have had periods of great optimism and other periods of equally great pessimism.

Not at all
Just a little
Somewhat
Moderately
Quite a lot
Very much

 

When confronted with hope of success we are all optimistic and greatly pessimistic when the odds seem to be against us. Once again does this happen once a day, week, or month?  It is definitely not a sign of mental illness!!! And most people don’t swing from intense optimism to intense pessimism in one day because we usually don’t do enough things to feel optimistic or pessimistic about on a daily basis.

 

12. I have had periods of tearfulness and crying and other times when I laugh and joke excessively.

Not at all
Just a little
Somewhat
Moderately
Quite a lot
Very much

We all are tearful when confronted with emotional disaster in our lives and laugh and joke excessively when we are happy and having a good time. How often do we vary from unhappiness to happiness all depends on what we are doing. Does it happen once a day, week, or year? Or does it happen 20 times a day?

 

Psychiatry is not a science and it shows its stupidity in the way that it analyzes non-violent mental illness and then pumps you full of drugs with terrible side effects and withdrawal symptoms. If you are non-violent and diagnosed with mental illness don’t take any drugs and ask for therapy instead or you will be hooked or addicted to terrible drugs for the rest of your life.

 

HISTORICALLY THE MYTHICAL PSYCHIATRIC PROFESSION WAS DESIGNED TO TAKE OUT DEVIANT BEHAVIOR FROM SOCIETY AND INCARCERATE NON VIOLENT SOCIAL DEVIANTS!!!

I have no respect and not the slightest admiration for the fraudulent drug pushing psychiatric “profession” which is screwing around with human lives and making them worse not better in most cases.

Patients should be undergoing radical behavior modification which teaches them to eat healthy, get moderate exercise, acquire new useful skills, and how to interact healthily with other humans. Most need radical reeducation and have to start doing things in life which don’t make them “crazy” or “mentally ill”. Mood altering drugs with devastating side effects are not the answer in about 95% of all cases!!!!!!

If you are an alcoholic or drug abuser who can’t find purpose in life then you will not find it in a shrink but need to connect with purpose driven moral individuals. Where do you find such humans? They are rare in this relativistic immoral society so you are probably out of luck unless you read more of my blogs, some of which have the answers to your problems.

WILL STATUS SYMBOLS MAKE YOU HAPPY?

View of the Playboy Mansion, owned by US

Many want to be respected and admired and think that the way to do it is to get the right status symbols in society. There are three basic categories of status symbols and they are social, body, and material status symbols.

Socially having or controlling much wealth is the biggest status symbol and you can inherit wealth or get it with enough effort and ability by getting a good education and entering a prestigious profession and rising to the top of the professional ladder.

Inheriting great wealth without the right education  and not having good human skills frequently means that you don’t know how hard it is to earn that much wealth and you may end up spending it all on material possessions and a hedonistic lifestyle of shallow relationships frequently peppered with a liberal use of alcohol and drugs. You will eventually deplete your wealth with profligate spending and wind up poor and very unhappy because you never learned how to make much money on your own.

Making much money with a prestigious profession probably means that you have much responsibility and will be working very hard and may not be wise enough to devote some of your valuable time on family and close friends. The result may be that you are professionally successful but have a failed marriage or worse yet some poorly educated and socially inept offspring who can’t make it on their own in life. One or more failed marriages and delinquent offspring will add much unhappiness to your life even though you have professional social status.

Especially many women feel that being as attractive as possible body wise is the key to social status and landing a good husband. Obsession with body weight, cosmetics, and fashion trying to stay as beautiful as possible fades with age and if you don’t have a career or good job to rely upon many body conscious women lead some very unhappy lives in old age when their external beauty fades. Attractive celebrities, attractive politicians, attractive sports stars, and attractive media professionals all make life very unhappy for the average citizen trying to achieve or maintain those unrealistic social standards of external beauty.

Wealthy or poor, material possessions are a status symbol in society and many mismanage their finances and go into great debt trying to have a big house, big car, expensive clothes, and the latest gadgets all on a shoestring budget. Impulsive shopping by both men and women is the cause of much unhappiness in humans reaching out for those material status symbols.

Finally, whether rich or poor the key to being truly admired and respected or having a good status in society is being honest, sincere, and reliable in your human interactions with family, close friends, and coworkers. Reliable means that you fulfill most of your promises and show up on time when you promise to do so. In other words you can be trusted with your promises. Trust and reliability is the bond which makes intimate successful human interactions possible and if you are the lying or deceptive kind then you will never be admired and respected by other humans, especially if you are in a leadership position and want to remain there.

Be a trustworthy and reliable human and you will have good status with others whether you are rich or poor and you probably also will have optimized your happiness!!!!!!

WHAT TO TRY TO BE AND NOT TRY TO BE!!!

“There is an incomplete philosophical struggle and it is between two rather distinct extreme mindsets. One is frequently but not always bad – it is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, lust, resentment, inferiority, foundationless pride, superiority, and inflated ego or extreme selfishness. “The other is frequently but not always good – it is faithfulness, joy, peace, caring, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, controlled generosity, compromise, and compassion. The same struggle is sometimes going on inside you – and inside every other caring human, too.”

 

Try not to be envious, resentful, or jealous but try to be empathetic and benevolent instead

Instead of being unhappy and resentful of another’s possessions and characteristics and luck and circumstances, try to share in the feeling of accomplishment which another human is experiencing and feel that their good achievements, abilities, and circumstances are to be praised and not put down or criticized.

Try not to be cruel and mean but try to be kind or caring and sympathetic instead

Instead of willfully causing suffering and mental displeasure in a human and getting pleasure doing so try to be caring and sympathetic and share in the bad feelings and emotions caused by mistakes or bad circumstances which exist in a human’s life. You can be a strict and demanding disciplinarian or boss but try not to do it in a cruel and mean way.

Try not to be too greedy, selfish, with unfounded pride and too much superiority and arrogance but try to be with some generosity, caring behavior, and an adequate humility.

Try not to wallow in regret, pessimism, self-pity, sorrow, depression, hopelessness, guilt, and inferiority but try to be optimistically hopeful, happy, and develop as much selfconfidence and selfmotivation as possible by gradually changing more and more of your bad habits into good ones.

Above all try to be honest, sincere, truthful, and reliable and the bonds of your relationships with others will grow stronger and not weaker and you will be admired and respected by most close humans in your life.

Finally teach your offspring if you decide to have any this moral code- except in emergency situations-don’t destroy biodiversity, don’t lie, don’t be inefficient, don’t steal, don’t commit adultery if married, and don’t murder!!!!!!
