I can recall having to count down from 100 in 7s and being given numbers and having to repeat them . A bit later I was tested on proverbs. I vaguely recall struggling with that.That was in 1975 and 1976. I’ve never had a full scale cognitive/IQ test as part of my psychiatric treatment.
I’m thinking things have probably moved on since then, but I could be wrong.
Yes shortly after my first hospitalization I had a cognitive assessment with a psychologist.
I had one done about 3 months ago after I started complaining about my memory
No I went into the psychiatric system in 2016 and I have never been tested for cognitive things. They just ask me things like how my concentration is at the pdoc appointment
I’ve had some cognitive tests done, similar to what you described @firemonkey . This was in 2010 or 2011.
I had an IQ test in the middle of my first episode.
Yup, full profile, I know exactly how I stand in each field. Still don’t know how much I trust it though
In the horrid psych hospital, the psychiatrist asked me to spell WORLD backwards.
I did a whole days worth of testing. Math, English, Writing, Memory, and knowledge.
I remember I knew the answer to who wrote Sherlock Holmes. I felt smart. Read that in high school. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
I’m going tomorrow to have cognitive testing done.
It’s 4 hours long and depending on the results I may have another two 4 hour sessions.
I’m terrified to go. I feel sick about it.
