Are You Mania or Depression?

Are you a wild child or more of a cool customer? I definitely fall on the high energy side of things, and it was during one of my more energetic episodes that I thought of so many of us relate to the concept of being manic depressive, even without talking about mental health issues. All of use humans tend to be on this mania depression continuum, and while it shifts daily, there’s a different natural mid point for all of us.

For example, I’m a more manic, energetic, and yes, even sometimes anxious person. I can’t imagine being so low energy that I didn’t get out of bed or off the couch, but I also let my energy run me ragged sometimes. I don’t really like down periods in my life. Even at my most exhausted, I find myself getting up again, getting moving, and getting stuff done. I’m mania all the way.

What about you? Are you as manic as I am? Or do you veer more towards the depressive side? Take this quiz to find out: Are You Mania or Depression? Of course, this is not an official mental health quiz… it’s just more of a barometer on your energy level and outlook through the manic-depressive lens 🙂 Let me know what you get!

  1. You Are Depression

    You aren’t necessarily depressed, but you do take a more low key approach to life.
    When it comes to a lot of drama and chaos, you really can’t be bothered to jump in the mix.

    You prefer to keep things on an even level, even if that level is pretty sedate. Sometimes the best action is inaction.
    You are less emotional than most people, and you find caring too much to be tiring. There is a lot of wisdom in your selective apathy.
