Ooh, I bet you can't wait...
I took Marilyn J Sorensen's self-esteem test and let's just say that there's room for improvement!
Interestingly, though, if you take a long, hard look at the questions her test asks you'll find clues as to what having self-esteem is all about - a kind of 'symptoms of low self esteem', you might say.
Anyway, I encourage you to take the self-esteem test(s) below, or any of the others listed. And, remember, you can always learn how to boost your self-esteem beforehand!
So do let us know how you got on with these tests, though, won't you!
Better, still why don't you share some of your low self esteem signs with us all! It's good to share.
But I'll leave you with this thought on self-esteem - a self-esteem test of my own. And it comes by way of an inspirational self-esteem quote:
"To live a creative life, we must
lose our fear of being wrong."
-- Joseph Chilton Pearce
Below you will find DR Marilyn J Sorensen's self-esteem test. Marilyn's formal title is Marilyn J Sorensen, PhD, Psychologist & Author, Director: The Self-Esteem Institute - so I think it's safe to say she knows what's what when it comes to self-esteem tests.
Marilyn has given me permission to "print out the test on your website if you then direct them to my website to take it interactively" and that is what I'm going to do. However, due to laziness on my part (a little - I had to type out the questions from her self-esteem test) and wanting to maintain Marilyn's copyright, I'm only going to include the first ten questions of her self-esteem test.
If you want to take this self-esteem test interactively then simply visit the link at the end of the self-esteem test.
Okay, questions maestro please...
Make a note of all the questions below that you answer yes to. Count them. And check your score at the end:
There are 40 more questions in Marilyn's self esteem test. (By the way a good score is saying yes to less than 4 questions. I'm not sure I'd have got less than 4)
The Rosenberg self esteem scale is a widely-used test, involving a 10-item Likert scale with items answered on a four point scale - from strongly agree to strongly disagree. (As you'll see at the link below.)
