The Psychiatric Global Checklist Test was created by IDRlabs.

The test provides feedback such as the following:

Somatization: Even in the absence of clear medical explanations, you regularly endure various physical discomforts, leaving you perplexed and distressed. These unexplained bodily sensations can range from persistent aches and pains to inexplicable sensations like tingling or numbness, all of which contribute to a pervasive sense of discomfort and unease. The mysterious nature of these symptoms can exacerbate feelings of helplessness and frustration as you struggle to understand their origin and find relief. Despite efforts to alleviate these discomforts, they persist, casting a shadow over your daily life and contributing to a persistent sense of distress and uncertainty.

Obsessive-Compulsive: You find yourself trapped in a cycle of intrusive thoughts and compulsive behaviors, leading to persistent distress. These intrusive thoughts, often unwelcome and distressing, consume your mind, leaving you feeling overwhelmed and anxious. In an attempt to alleviate this distress, you may feel compelled to perform repetitive actions or rituals, even when you know they are irrational. Despite your efforts to resist these compulsions, they persist, exerting a powerful hold over your daily life and contributing to a pervasive sense of anxiety and unease.

Criticism Aversion: Even in situations where direct criticism is not present, you harbor an intense fear of negative evaluation, which permeates your thoughts and actions. This fear of being judged or criticized negatively can lead to persistent anxiety and avoidance behaviors, as you go to great lengths to avoid situations where you might face disparagement or disapproval. You find yourself second-guessing your actions and decisions, constantly seeking reassurance and validation from others to alleviate your fears of criticism. Despite efforts to quell these anxieties, they persist, impacting your confidence and self-esteem and contributing to a pervasive sense of unease and self-doubt.

Depression: You might find yourself consistently mired in glumness and pessimism, struggling to find joy in life. The oppressive and somber nature of your thoughts can lead to periods of psychomotor retardation, where your cognitive processes slow to a near halt, rendering you unable to experience pleasure amidst bouts of melancholy and dejection. Even as you endeavor to gather yourself, an overwhelming sense of resignation envelops you—a feeling that "life is over" and that striving to reclaim joy and improve your circumstances is futile.

Anxiety: Even in seemingly ordinary situations, you find yourself overwhelmed by a persistent sense of worry and apprehension. These feelings of tension and nervousness can manifest both physically and emotionally, leading to symptoms such as restlessness, irritability, and difficulty concentrating. You may experience frequent bouts of racing thoughts and catastrophic thinking, where you envision the worst-case scenarios in various aspects of your life. Despite efforts to calm these anxieties through relaxation techniques or avoidance behaviors, they persist, interfering with your daily activities, relationships, and overall well-being. The constant barrage of anxious thoughts and physical sensations leaves you feeling exhausted and on edge, as if you're constantly on the brink of a crisis.

Hostility: You frequently experience feelings of anger, resentment, and irritability towards others, leading to conflicts and strained relationships. These hostile feelings can manifest in both thoughts and behaviors, as you find yourself quick to perceive slights or insults from others, even when none are intended. Despite attempts to control these hostile impulses, they often escalate, leading to confrontations and interpersonal tension. The underlying sense of mistrust and suspicion towards others can further exacerbate these feelings as you struggle to navigate social interactions with a sense of unease and apprehension. Ultimately, these hostile feelings can take a toll on your mental and emotional well-being, contributing to a pervasive sense of negativity and dissatisfaction in your life.

Phobia: Despite recognizing that your fears may be irrational, you experience intense and debilitating anxiety when confronted with specific objects or situations. These phobic triggers can evoke overwhelming feelings of panic and dread, leading to avoidance behaviors as you go to great lengths to evade situations that trigger your fears. Despite efforts to rationalize or confront these fears, they persist, exerting a powerful hold over your daily life and contributing to a pervasive sense of unease and distress.

Paranoia: You frequently experience feelings of suspicion, mistrust, and persecution towards others, leading to hypervigilance and interpersonal conflict. These paranoid thoughts can manifest in various situations, as you find yourself constantly on guard and interpreting innocent remarks or actions as personal attacks or threats. Despite attempts to rationalize or dismiss these paranoid beliefs, they persist, fueling a sense of fear and anxiety in your interactions with others. The pervasive sense of mistrust and suspicion can lead to social isolation and strained relationships as you struggle to navigate interpersonal dynamics with a sense of unease and apprehension. Ultimately, these paranoid thoughts can take a toll on your mental and emotional well-being, contributing to a pervasive sense of alienation and disconnection from others.

Psychoticism: You occasionally experience detachment from reality and unusual beliefs, leading to perceptual disturbances and difficulty distinguishing between what is real and what is not. These experiences can range from fleeting moments of confusion to more profound episodes of hallucinations or delusions. Despite efforts to rationalize or dismiss these unusual experiences, they persist, exerting a powerful influence on your thoughts and perceptions. The underlying sense of detachment and disconnection from reality can lead to feelings of alienation and isolation as you struggle to make sense of your experiences and navigate daily life. Ultimately, these psychotic symptoms can have a significant impact on your mental and emotional well-being, contributing to a pervasive sense of confusion and distress.

Well-Adjusted: You generally experience a balanced and positive outlook on life, with a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction in your daily activities. You approach challenges with resilience and adaptability, viewing them as opportunities for growth and learning. Your relationships are characterized by trust, empathy, and mutual respect, and you feel a sense of connection and belonging within your social network. You maintain a healthy work-life balance, prioritizing self-care and leisure activities that bring you joy and fulfillment. Overall, you feel confident in your abilities and optimistic about the future, with a strong sense of purpose and direction in life.f
