Quick poll: 71% respondents would take an “annual mental check-up”

Rein­forc­ing the results from the more exten­sive sur­vey included in our new mar­ket report, 71% respon­dents to a quick LinkedIn poll we just run say they would  take a brief assess­ment every year as an “annual men­tal check-up.”

A few sam­ple comments:

  • Sure, why not? You take your car in for reg­u­lar main­te­nance and assess­ments. Why shouldn’t we do that for our­selves? Besides, I’d like to make sure every so often, that I’m not falling into the “nor­mal” cat­e­gory. Heaven forbid!”
  • I would do it for myself, but not as part of my job or as an employ­ment con­di­tion. It’s too “Big Brother”
  • Would, of course, depend on the valid­ity & reli­a­bil­ity of the assess­ment tool.”
  • I already know that I am ‘scram­bled’ and I need no fur­ther con­fir­ma­tion of that reality!”
  • I fig­ure, no rea­son why not too, I wouldn’t want to be the one to pay for it though, as I could think of bet­ter ways to spend my money.”
  • No, I wouldn’t. Obsess­ing about your­self just makes you unhappy.”
