It will be really a tough time without any tools or tests because just by looking into the symptoms alone we cannot make any conclusion; this is where bipolar test comes in the game. These tests serve to determine whether a person actually has been suffering from bipolar disorder or it is something else. Some patients diagnosed with either depression or ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) may be misdiagnosed and suffering from bipolar disorder, so the only way to ensure what is proper diagnosis is to take the test. The test usually has two different sheets, with two sets of statements, since bipolar patients suffer from signs and symptoms of both mania and depression.

On the other hand signs of depression in bipolar test, the participants agree or disagree with various statements like, I am really sad most of the time, I don’t feel like talking to people, I think about death a lot and have suicidal tendencies, I don’t sleep well at night and I am very restless, I don’t feel like eating much, I feel like eating all the time or I am mad at everybody and everything and I have little to no sexual energy.

Diagnose with Bipolar Test

There may be numerous signs and symptoms; we should not jump to any conclusion. To make a proper diagnosis and to form an appropriate treatment plan, these tests are the best tools. The tests that are used are paper pencil tests, projective tests and personality tests. These tests are standarized and structured, simple in language.
