    Yes, the problem with the CFQ is how the questions are framed, it is a short term "how are you feeling" measure, designed to be as easily biased as possible.

    It was designed as a diagnositic tool. I don't think they designed it to be biased. But its use as anything other than a diagnostic tool does lead to bias.
