Depression Score: 30 20-49 Normal Range 50-59 Mildly Depressed 60-69 Moderately Depressed 70 and above get (psychological) help!!!
Optimism Score: 19 The range is from 0 to 24, from extreme pessimism to extreme optimism, with virtual neutrality being the midpoint, 12. Most people who have taken the test are slightly optimistic, Carver said. For instance, among 2,000 college students, the average score was 14, with two-thirds scoring between 10 and 18.
A group of 159 patients awaiting coronary artery bypass surgery had an average score of 15, possibly suggesting that a serious challenge may boost one`s optimism a bit.
People tend to run a little toward the optimistic end of the dimension, but not by a whole lot, Carver said. Also, people tend to the moderate in their self-descriptions.
Not many are saying they are enormously optimistic or pessimistic.
