The screening for OCD on this site doesn't make any sense. Each question just asks you about a different type of OCD. So the results do not indicate whether or not you have OCD or the severity or frequency of symptoms. Instead, all they show is how many different types of OCD you may have symptoms of, which is entirely different. Someone could have the most extreme OCD but only concerning one area (for example contamination OCD) but according to the test they likely don't have OCD because of how many questions they answered yes. And someone could not actually have OCD or very mild OCD but answered yes to the majority of questions simply because they have behaviours which relate to a variety of different types of OCD. The test shows absolutely no understanding of OCD which I did not expect from this organisation/site who are meant to be there to help people with this disorder. You'd think there would be some basic understanding there. It's ridiculous and embarrassing.
