There are several social anxiety questionnaires that help professionals determine whether an individual should be diagnosed with social anxiety disorder. We emphasize the term professionals here, because many people tend to self-diagnose and even self-medicate, which can lead to severe problems. So, even though we offer a social anxiety test used by professionals in order to give you an idea of your situation, we underline the importance of seeking professional help regarding this process.
Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale (LSAS-SR)
This questionnaire assesses the way social anxiety affects your life across a variety of situations. Read each situation carefully and rate how anxious or fearful you feel in the situation and then 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.
