Under rating threshold (show) A lot of them do seem to be flawed choices, less about fear, than assessing risk. Would I rather be set on fire [non-fatal] or die by drowning. for example. Me. no. am. suicidal.

Under rating threshold (show) The eventual results are the same, I presume? I've had the same events several times, answered differently, and the class still stared at me/the man still wished me a good night/the rest of the test still went well/the interviewer is always angry. The random announcements you get after that seemingly have nothing to do with your answers. You always get two extra chances to choose the other answer by making both your answer seem worse and the other seem better, but sometimes they're insignificant and sometimes they suddenly make it completely different. I don't see how this has to do with phobias, sometimes. I mean, I guess if you ask me if I'd rather be stung in the eye with an injection or drown, I would choose the latter, because I'm not even sure if I would survive such an injection. On the other hand, would I rather drown or be covered in deadly black widows? Both lead to my eventual death, what does it matter? (I'm not sure which one is quicker.)

Under rating threshold (show) Yep, it's pretty much risk assessment if you have no glaring phobias. The answers have a pretty clear ranking in "payoff". It's more brainwork than emotions. Now, a choice between drowning and falling to your death would be more like it. Walking down a dark corridor - one would even do it for fun Getting an injection in the eye - no permanent drawback, serious discomfort (even if it does cause blindness, it's just one eye) Being publicly humiliated - Medium social deficiency Being homeless - Serious social deficiency. medium drop in life quality Being covered in deadly black widows - High risk of death Having no limbs - Extreme drop in life quality Getting crushed in a shrinking elevator - Certain death Falling from a great height - Certain death Drowning - Certain death

Under rating threshold (show) I think it would have been interesting if after answering enough questions you got to play a game that would be scripted to scare you based on how you answered.

Under rating threshold (show) the game DOES have a lot to do with assessing risks, but i think that's part of the point. someone with a phobia cannot necessarily assess risks in a logical way when faced with a choice between something they fear and something they don't fear that is equally or more dangerous. i would rather be set on fire than walk down a dark corridor.

Under rating threshold (show) I agree with Mikebolt. I liked the game though. Its kinda cool and gets you thinking a bit. Only if it went into a game based off your answers like he said. Cool idea though.

Under rating threshold (show) I think that the only challenging decision is to live without limbs or die by drowning(and you can talk yourself an option of being unconcious while that). What would you choose(without cheating such as mechanical arms)?

Under rating threshold (show) One of the things I hate are the fact that some are pure fear,and others are actual,physical harm,and some are more terrifying than what any phobia can provide. I.E. I'm very afraid of the dark,but I'd rather walk down a dark corridor than live without limbs. I'm not at all afraid of spiders,but I would still not want to be covered in them-they still bite AND some have venom,I'd rather get an injection,which I am afraid of.

Under rating threshold (show) "Would you rather be covered in spiders, or be homeless?" "I'd rather be homeless." "Not only would you be homeless, you would be covered in spiders." That's a really good incentive to convert phobias, I have to say. But seriously, I really like the game.

Under rating threshold (show) The answers seem slightly random. "trapped in a lift" or "Fall from great height" but the lift is getting smaller. ->Great height. My answer: "you are afraid of spiders" makes almost no sense in this context. also, no im not.

Under rating threshold (show) Would you rather have an injection or be set on fire? is the only set of questions I ever got in this quiz. Each time I said the injection but it gave me lines "while being set on fire is really painful" and then tells me that I'm afraid of spiders. LOL Wrong! That isn't even close to being my greatest fear: fire!!!!! So thumbs down on this pseudo-psychology quiz.

Under rating threshold (show) this game is not a game of phobia it is a game of *circumstances* (might have mispelled im not sure) i would rather drown unconsious than be set on fire and suffer for the rest of my life but i would rather be set on fire and recover in a few months or years than drown knowing i didnt have the time to say goodbye to my familly or accomplish what i wanted to accomplish
