Taking or not taking life seriously can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'worrying' to 'generally fatal'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose taking or not taking life seriously, we could:
How serious are you about major factors in your life, such as your education, career, family and future?
Possible responses:→ I have recently begun taking things very seriously
→ I have always taken things very seriously
→ About average / don't know
→ I have never taken things very seriously
→ I have recently developed a "don't care" attitude
A person with Social Anxiety Disorder is afraid of making mistakes, looking bad, or being embarrassed or humiliated in front of others.
A change in behavior, such as the development of an "I don't care" attitude, speech changes, memory loss, loss of concentration, and general confusion may all be subtle signs of a brain tumor. An evaluation by a neurologist may be an important step, but a CT or MRI will also help.
