If you answered mostly A ...
Good news! You aren’t technically crazy; you simply suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder, or OCD. According to recent studies, 2.3 percent of the population between the ages of 18 and 54 suffer from OCD. Leave it to a statistic about OCD to have an age range that is so arbitrary.
If you answered mostly B ...
You suffer from a serious form of dementia that is in all likelihood untreatable. The bright side is that if you had the wherewithal to take this quiz, you most likely don’t have an extreme case.
If you answered mostly C ...
You’re crazy ... like a fox! Being “crazy like a fox,” of course, doesn’t mean you're mentally ill. Rather, you are cunning, or crafty. You get down to business and get things done. This is not to be confused with “hungry like the wolf,” which, of course, doesn’t refer to the need for food but means (at least according to the video by Duran Duran) “hat-wearing, sweaty and chasing a cat-woman in Sri Lanka,” which is of course, crazy.
If you answered mostly D ...
Then you aren’t crazy, you’re cheesy. Stop being so cheesy!
