A common psychological examination question is "Did anyone help you perform basic activities of daily living such as housekeeping, laundry, food preparation or shopping?" Another common question is "Over the past two weeks, how often have you felt anxious or nervous?" according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
Psychological testing can be given through a clinical interview, which is not an assessment but consists of questions that can highlight mental conditions, according to the American Psychological Association. Psychological testing can also determine patients' issues even if they do not have APA-recognized disorders. There are no right answers on a psychological test or a clinical interview, and patients should always answer honestly for the best results, notes the American Psychological Association.
