that's a bit too broad. i don't have anything to compare to. my life is boring, but it's convenient. could be a lot better, could be a lot worse. on a scale of 0 to 10 ( :evil: ), i give it a 5

At first, I thought I wouldn't be able to rank anything, but then your comment about 1 being living hell made me think of comparing it Dante.

If 1 to 4 is hell, 4 to 7 is purgatory, and 7 to 10 is paradise... I'd say about 5.5

Things could be a whole lot better, but they could be a lot worse, too, so I would say 5.

Add to that whatever promise or recourse I feel is tangible and you get 6.

Minus my perceived inability or reluctance to take advantage of such resources, which is a serious problem, and you end up with 4.5.

I do not have to freeze, nor hunger, nor be afraid someone might kill me.
Since I‘m in contact with my faculties, emotional issues maybe subtract a hundredth. So, I say 9.9.

I would be interested to know what a 9 or a 10 might look like to you and how much worth you attribute to a home, enough food and physical safety. Could you name and give a numeric value to the things missing too?

I'd say my quality of life is 9 out of 10. I don't have any major problems. I am a fully-functioning severe or "pure" schizoid (meaning I appear to have a "normal" life on the outside...I am able to work and function in society on a somewhat "normal" level).

So...I realize I'm not the worst case of a severe or "pure" Schizoid by any means. I call it like I see it.

I attribute my high quality of life to a lack of relationships. No girlfriend and kids to worry about for me. No...I find the lack of those responsibilities very empowering. I guess my response is no surprise, but I do feel the need to chime in on here once in a while.

I was expecting lower scores tbh. I'd imagine the social isolation, apathy, and anhedonia would really takes the joy out of living. Then again, Cluster A's are known to see themselves as normal and the rest of the world as out of line, so perhaps it's just a case of "not knowing what you're missing".

A 9 or 10 would be where I have no personal problems whatsoever; lived an interesting, fulfilling and eventful life, and also have a fairly good living situation -- meaning a nice place to live and sufficient food/water. Right now I'd say -- taking into account the worth of what I have already -- that my score would be a 6. Could be better, could be much worse.

I often fantasize about all the things I could be doing, and all the fun that I could be having but... nah, I don't feel like it, I never feel like it. Instead I spend almost all of my free time in my room -- living through the Internet, TV shows, and gaming. I'm semi-content living like this but at the same time I desire more... :(

largely so, probably

for me at least it goes beyond that though. i said "right in the middle of the scale" yesterday, because it simply felt like "could be a lot better, could be a lot worse" was all that there was for me to go by. at the moment when i woke up today, i would have given it a lower rating. right now i'd say it's a solid 9 instead

it's very strange to even see that it was yesterday that i was first responding to this. it's very hard for me to identify with past emotional/subjective perceptions of my own, even from a very recent past sometimes. my perception of my quality of life at any given moment has very little to do with my actual quality of life in the longer term

I rate my quality of life based on how independent/self-sufficient and self-actualised I am at any given moment.

The older I get, the more I become of the above, so at this moment, I would give my quality of life a 7.
