What is a Rumination subscale?

I took some depression online test thing (scientific certified) and at the end it said i had an 87 out of 100. and i think it was on something called a Rumination subscale. what is that? and is 87 bad?

Re: What is a Rumination subscale?

It is a legitimate test to check vulnerability for depression that some doctors find accurate but not all of them. I have no idea what your score would mean and i am kind of wondering about the test that predicts whether or not you will get a certain disorder. When it comes to doing tests online always make sure you check the source as drug manufactures put a lot of them out so the results are pretty slanted. If you are taking tests online means to me you have a strong idea that something may be off so you should be booking an appointment with your doctor.

take care

the description under the score said "you worry too much about what other people think of you, unfortunately, this may lead to you feeling worse about your problems than you need to."

well thats a summarized quote of the real one. and i do notice thats true about me.
