(HealthDayNews) -- Do you got into the store for one thing and find yourself wheeling out a cart full of other things as well?

Then this test is for you. While only a psychologist can make the final determination, answering in the affirmative on too many of these questions can mean you're a person who can't control the urge to buy.

See if you agree or disagree with these statements, published in the journal Psychological Reports:

  1. When I go shopping, I buy things that I had not intended to purchase.
  2. I am a person who makes unplanned purchases.
  3. When I see something that really interests me, I buy it without considering the consequences.
  4. It is fun to buy spontaneously.
