Social Anxiety Test


https://socialanxietyinstitute.org/t...-social-phobia

I got 66/90. Which is on the very high scale. Not sure why it is 66 and not higher :/

Maybe you've been exposed to some of them things and not as anxious towards them as you would be otherwise? Just did it myself and got 82.

I got a 30. Minimum DSM-IV qualification in diagnosis for SAD, according to this test.

My anxiety mostly comes from a lack of social experience. Standing up and speaking in class or giving a presentation? I can do that. I've done that plenty of times. People who care about me wishing me a happy birthday? I cannot handle that, it only happened once and it terrified me. Asking a salesperson for assistance? I can do that, that's what they're there for. It's their job.

Your score indicates some social anxiety symptoms. You may or may not have a diagnosable case of social anxiety disorder

Good points you make.

I got a 37 (threshold for possible SA) and that's pretty low relative to other, more established SA tests. I feel the test is poorly made. For one thing, there is no measure of social avoidance, which is a big part of SA.
Many questions are outright poor indicators of SA or only tangentially related to the disorder (e.g., the ones about driving alone, walking around the block, and spilling a tray at a mall).

All your fears are an illusion; they are immaterial; they do not exist.

I got 49 but I'm the complete opposite, Making a presentation in class freaks me out, and i can't talk to strangers without my heart racing. i do feel a bit uncomfortable when people wish me happy birthday tho. I think maybe it could be a lack of one on one deep connections with other?

63. Perhaps I'm worse than I thought.

Does 3 mean like "no words at all coming from your mouth" or like "fainting at the thought of it"?

There's gotta be no one worse off than me. Everyone here has friends or some social interaction
