Social Anxiety Test

The Social Anxiety test is a self-assessment tool used measure the presence of thoughts, ideas and beliefs related to the fear of social judgement.

Social anxiety is the fear of being judged by others within your social context and can lead to high levels of anxiety and stress.

Subjectivity & Objectivity in the Social Anxiety 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 social anxiety or not and this test actually measures behavioural responses.

Taking the Social Anxiety Test

This social anxiety test contains 20 questions and you must answer each question to complete it.
