Social Anxiety Test

Taking the social anxiety test helps to determine the severity of SAD symptoms.

 

There are several social anxiety questionnaires that help determine whether or not an individual should be diagnosed with SAD. Keep in mind that a real diagnosis should always be administered by a qualified health care professional.

We emphasize the term professional here, because many people tend to self-diagnose and even self-medicate, which can lead to significant adverse effects. With that said, the following social anxiety test gives you an idea of your symptom severity.

 

Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale (LSAS-SR)

 

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.

    1. 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

    1. 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 (contact@conquersocialanxiety.com).
