The only "brain function" test I had showed I had slower than usual info processing...but the test is biased because it was given orally. I don't do well orally, I do better when I can read/see the question. I read >900 words/minute in high school, with good comprehension, so I don't think I'm slow to process visual stuff, just oral/auditory stuff.
The other tests I've been given have been to look for depression & anxiety. The MMPI is outdated because it associates stomach ulcers with stress, which we now know are 98% caused by h. pylori bacteria. The MMPI also has other questions that make assumptions about activities that "everyone" participates in. I don't go to parties, for example, but that doesn't mean I'm not social or don't like to talk to friends. I just don't prefer large crowds because of the noise. Am I a nut job for this? No, but the test doesn't take this into consideration...it just assumes everyone goes to parties. I could go on and on... Suffice it to say the test is biased and very outdated, in my opinion.
