Self Esteem Test

The Self Esteem test is a self-assessment tool used to measure thoughts and ideas representative of self esteem.

Subjectivity & Objectivity in the Self Esteem Test

It is important to be aware that the possible responses are subjective in nature and so the outcome is the result of subjectivity (based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or opinions).

Unlike a blood test, which produces a definitive, or objective, result, self-administered tests are only as reliable as the responses that are given.

Because of this, the results are NOT definitive, but only serve as an indication.

In fact, there is no objective test available to determine if a person has high or low self esteem or not and this test actually measures behavioural responses.

Taking the Self Esteem Test

This test contains 20 questions and you must answer each question to complete the test.
