We would like you to indicate the extent to which you think these people would be limited in the kind or amount of work they can do. Please assume that the people have the same age, education and work history that you have. Other than the conditions mentioned, you should imagine the individual is in reasonably good health. Richard feels worried all the time. He gets depressed once a week at work for a couple of days in a row, thinking about what could go wrong and that his boss will disapprove of his condition. But he is able to come out of this mood if he concentrates on something else. How much is Richard limited in the kind or amount of work he could do?
