About the Social Anxiety Test

Social Anxiety

Social anxiety disorder is a common mental health condition that can significantly impact a person’s daily life.

Individuals with social anxiety often experience intense fear and distress in social situations, leading to avoidance or extreme discomfort.

Common symptoms include excessive self-consciousness, fear of judgment or humiliation, difficulty speaking or connecting with others, and physical symptoms like sweating or trembling. 

How to Take the Social Anxiety Test

This social anxiety test is designed to assess your beliefs about the social context in which you live and how much you worry about observing the social rules.

It also assesses how much you might worry about being negatively judged by social peers, friends or family.

It is important to be aware that your responses are subjective in nature and so the outcome is the result of subjectivity.

In other words, the results of the test depend entirely on your responses to the questions and NOT on any biological problems inside you.

In this sense, the test ‘results’ indicate socially anxious responses and not evidence of an illness.
