You meet the diagnostic criteria for Mild to Moderate Bipolar disorder.

Based upon your responses to this bipolar disorder test, you appear to be suffering from some symptoms commonly associated with a mild to moderate bipolar disorder. People who have answered similarly to you typically qualify for a diagnosis of Bipolar I. You appear to have hypomanic episodes. You appear not to suffer from depressive episodes (that would meet the diagnostic criteria as such). You should not take this as a diagnosis of any sort, or a recommendation for treatment. However, you may want to look into seeking further consultation with a trained mental health professional if you are experiencing any difficulties in daily functioning that's impairing your life.

Screening quizzes are not diagnostic tests, nor can they provide you with a diagnosis. The only person who can provide you with a diagnosis is a physician, psychiatrist, psychologist, or other mental health care professional. It is generally not beneficial for you to identify a diagnosis ahead of time, and then go to a doctor telling them you believe you have that diagnosis. Instead, we encourage you to identify symptoms of concern to your doctor that are having a significant impact in your daily life. A valid and reliable diagnosis can only be made in partnership with your doctor or mental health professional.

We believe in the importance of screening quizzes because they help in the effort to reduce the stigma, prejudice and discrimination people who have mental health concerns often suffer in silence, because others believe their symptoms aren’t “real.” Mental disorders are real and screening quizzes help identify serious, life-changing symptoms of concern in people who might not otherwise consult with a mental health professional.
