The following questionnaire assesses the way social anxiety affects your life across a variety of domains.
Read each situation carefully and rate how anxious or fearful you feel in the situation.
Next, you will be asked to rate how often you avoid the scenario.
In case there is a situation you ordinarily do not experience, imagine “what if you were faced with that situation?”
Please base your answers on your experiences of the past week.

I didn’t know about this kind of anxiety until I read the content of this very interesting website… thank you Martin
Thanks Clariza! Spreading awareness is among our main objectives. Cheers
Thanks for the test, I think it is very complete and gives you many tools to know how you feel with Social Anxiety. My result was 78, but luckily I don’t suffer much because of my social anxiety
Thanks for sharing your results Johana. If you don’t feel your life and well-being are affected in a negative way, your social anxiety can be regarded as adaptive. Best, your CSA Team
I got an 88 and I could see why. I think sometimes it’s because of my family but also because of myself and other people too.
thank you for the test its good to get a visual of where you’re at, my result was a 120.
Thanks for sharing Sarai! It can also serve as a reference point to see if certain interventions work for you. All the best!
Thank u very much for the work put into this, I must say it was realy helpful
I just took the test, and I understand things better now. I acknowledge this challenge and I am realy open to getting better. I don’t want Social anxiety disorder to stop me from expressing who I truly am.
Hi Jay, thank you for sharing your experience! It is great that you are motivated to do something about it.
I took the test and mine is 84.
It says I have severe SAD, please I realy want to get out of this, it’s so humiliating. But I strongly believe I will get better
If it helps a bit: many people score above 100. Also: this test is just to give you a general idea. For a real diagnosis, you should always contact your mental health care professional. With that said, diagnoses should be taken lightly, as we are much more than just a couple of symptoms and numbers. Always feel free to reach out to us via email should you have any questions (email@example.com).
i scored 108. Ive dealt with social anxiety for as long as i can remember. Ive been in therapy but it doesn’t help. I was put on medication for it but the medication i was on made me feel like i wasn’t myself anymore. If anyone has any personal tips or know of anything that can help me with it please let me know please. contact me at @firstname.lastname@example.org
Hi Gray, thank you for your comment and for sharing your story. It is unfortunate to hear that therapy and medication did not work for you. While your frustration is understandable and justified, you should know that there are numerous different therapeutic approaches, as well as medications, that address social anxiety in slightly different ways. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to social anxiety, and it can be a real game-changer to keep seeking professional help until you find an approach that suits you and works for you. To get an overview of all therapy options that have been scientifically proven to lead to positive results, feel free to read our eBook (you can find it in our store under “products & services”). There are many good and highly qualified therapists out there, we hope you get back in touch with one of them. All the best!
