None or Minimal Anxiety

Your answers on this self-report questionnaire suggest that you likely are not currently suffering from an anxiety disorder. Your responses suggest that you experience an ordinary level of worry about things such as work, health, family, and other areas of life.

Situational Social Anxiety

Your responses to this self-report questionnaire indicate that you are likely experiencing some situational symptoms of social anxiety.
You may notice heightened anxiety regarding certain types of social situations, while feeling fine in others. As is typical with situational social anxiety, you may find that you often avoid these particular situations if at all possible and may be increasingly concerned with how you are perceived by others in these situations. If you are noticing these patterns and feel that they are negatively impacting your life, you may want to consider consulting with a mental health professional to process your concerns and collaborate on a plan to get the anxiety under control so that you can start feeling more comfortable in your own skin.

Generalized Social Anxiety

Your results on this self-report questionnaire suggest that you may likely be experiencing symptoms of social anxiety in a variety of social situations. You may be experiencing heightened anxiety prior to, during, or even when simply thinking about social situations in which you would have to interact with others or perform in some way. As is typical with generalized social anxiety, you may find that you often avoid most social situations if at all possible and find it difficult to get past your concerns about how others might perceive you. If you are noticing these patterns, odds are they may have begun negatively impacting your life, your relationships, or your work or school performance. It is likely a good time to reach out to a mental health professional to process your concerns and collaborate on a plan to get the anxiety under control so that you can start regaining the social aspects of your life that you’ve been missing.
