  • I have been 'shy' since the day I was born. When I was a kid if adults spoke to me, no matter who there were, I'd poke my tongue out for some reason. If they persisted in talking to me, I'd burst into tears. I'm now 57 and although I've managed to be married, have two kids, divorced and hold down jobs - it's been very very stressful for me and eventually I had a complete breakdown when I was 40. Since then, I've reverted to bursting into tears especially when meeting new people or people in authority. It's highly embarrassing and debilitating and I scored 87% here and cried all the way through the questions because I didn't realise a) there was a name for what I have and b) how much it's ruined my life.

  • Your results suggest some social anxiety. This anxiety does not overwhelm you or prevent you from social contact, however it does inhibit you in some ways. Certain social situations pose a challenge to you. Just try to be confident and you'll do fine. Trust in your abilities and personality.

    tha ts very accurate. to those who took the quiz who have really bad social anxiety 80% and higher i know how difficult that is to live with. If i had taken this quiz 5 years ago, i would have scored at the very least 80%, probably higher. It was really, really hard but i made myself have lower social anxiety. I took it really slow and when i finally got enough courage and was sick of being like this i tried my hardest to come out of my shell just ever so slightly. Well not really but someone i already knew took me with him to see his friends. i really didnt want to it made me feel sick and nervious and i kept my distance the entire time, for awhile at least. eventually after numerous times of seeing them i got used to there presence and eventually made friends with some of them. I kept doing this process over and over with new people at a very slow rate. After a while it became easier and sometimes i could maake friends on my own. dont get me wrong i still struggle, its not easy. I still am terrible at loosening up and im definately the quiet one of the group, im managing though. What im saying is dont give up, that is the biggest thing to remember. many times you will probably think to youself no matter how hard i try i cant beat this (and those kind of thoughts) but keep pushing through no matter how long it takes. Remember to go at a slow enough pace that you can handle if you try to rush it too much or even try to supress it, it will probably backfire. Odds are you will never 100% get over it, if you do i give you props, but you can learn to control it instead of it controlling you. Control does not mean supress, many people think they're controlling when the

  • To all the people on this quiz who feel bad about themselves, its really not that hard to just go up to someone and start up a conversation. As a person who has been bullied, lost a grandfather and my father, been heartbroken and family has always been disfunctional all in the past 2-3 years... I have stayed as strong as possible as soon as you fall off the edge of a cliff pull yourself back up before you die. I could be popular, I could go to social events, but I CHOOSE NOT TOO for the simple fact of I am completely happy with the loyal and heartfelt friends I have now.

    Depress ion =/= social anxiety.

    I am strong as well, enough to fake a smile and keep going, and I take pride in that. However I am not good in social situations. I DO NOT want to be popular, I just want a friend, just one, I'd be happy forever. You may have been depressed (I'm glad to hear it's better though, I have been through almost the same except I lost both my mom and dad...) but you can't tell ANYONE who struggles that it is "easy" simply because it is for YOU. Think about OTHER people's feelings, not your own, everyone is different.

  • 73% which u guess is definitely not the worst. But I was expecting higher so I'm glad it's not. I hate meeting new people and I have very limited eye sight so idk I hate being in public by myself cause I guess I can't see right and embarrass myself and look like an idiot. And I hate being in crowds of people I don't know well and I hate new places and omg I may as well stay in my house forever :( I don't want to tell my parents cause honestly they will put me through hell. New school in a different country with loads of stranger is just gonna be fab. :( F. M. L.

  • 67%? Whew. I've always thought I was kinda more weird than that. But seriously, I can actually change in shyness. Each time I try doing a sport program, I'm so shy i can barely move (occasionally). But if I'm with someone that my friends/parents (or somebody I trust) know(s)I turn into my dad (who is a VERY social person). It's weird. I think it's because when I was younger, most if not all of my classmates alienated me and called me a nerd, for the simple reason that I like to read. It's so goddamn annoying.

  • 80% ^-^... Most of this stuff is true to me. Like that one where it's so easier to talk online. To strangers and fellow peers, I can't utter one word. Not even HI. Annd this has been happening for my whole life so far and I'm 14 now and I'm afraid my disorder of SM [Selective Mutism] will worsen and continue into highschool and my adult hood... And I know this is apart from social anxiety and such but... Is it normal that I want to be a sociopath? To be insane? o-o

  • 73%

    Your results reveal that you have social anxiety. In your case it is not completely debilitating, yet it does interfere with your life significantly, making social engagements a challenge. Social situations can be quite frustrating/scary to you. It's hard, but try to build your confidence to beat the anxiety.

    Makes sense...

  • I scored a 100%. I work with people all the time, work with a team of fellow co workers. I don't think this test is accurate. I'm in law enforcement and I have to deal with the public. Not so much anymore because I work in plain clothes but I have always functioned, but hate crowded places. I don't hide away and lock myself in my house.

  • 87% The longest I've spent indoors without contact from the outside was nearly two months. I have headaches, I'm paranoid, I have crying episodes, I have trouble building relationships, my closest friends are dogs, answering question or reading out loud makes me out of breath, my heart palpitates, I sweat, I feel my face get really hot, I get shaky, I'm always on the verge of crying, even reading about or talking about it makes me cry, I get yelled at I start crying. I never answer the telephone. I can't stand being in a social situation, I get very depressed. I rather get a failing grade than do a presentation or ask about assingment i've missed, or get an extention. I take an online class to avoid social interaction. I'm now on anti-depressants and in counseling. I'm barely in high school.

  • Your Social Anxiety Score: 50%

    You results show that you have some moderate social anxiety. This is not out of the normal range, however. Overall you still have some good social skills and are able to interact with others. You would not be classified as a social phobic.

    sooo true im kinda paranoid and stuff but im not... unnormal... if that makes any sense lol XD

  • 90%, not surprising. Can't stand being around people, and I can't stand the isolation. Nothing ever changes. Years of therapy has been a complete waste of time. Every single aspect of my life stinks. Seeing a happy couple just makes me want to throw up. I hate this, all of it, all the time.

  • 87% - I used to think I was just a loner, an introvert. Then I finished college and got a job where I had to interact with people constantly through out the day and I started getting panic attacks and everything. My depression even got worse. I need a job where I can hide in an office and do my own thing.

  • 70% it should be way more... I've had this since 7th grade n I'm so sick of it!! So why can't I just get help?? I have trust issues.. I have a problem admiting things. I don't want to have to face this anxiety alone...I need someone- oh n for all those people that don't have it but still put a comment--thats great for u guys but we could care less. I don't need anyone rubbing it in my face that their perfectly fine. I'm pretty sure others agree....

  • 77%...I'm with Tipster on this one! And yet all I have to do is try to build my confidence!! Why didn't I think of that? lol...

    I have no desire to leave the house and the only time I do is when I absolutely HAVE to - haven't held a job in over a year; most days I can't get myself off of the couch; crowds terrify me; cleaning the house is too big of a 'project' to tackle; I don't answer the phone -- hate it when I have to.

    Yeah, I'd say it interferes with my life significantly!

  • This test isn't as accurate as it could be as for some of the questions it says things like I have few friends but I would like to have more, so I said no to that because people make me uncomfortable (I checked to see if saying yes to that would increase my percentage and it did. When my answer (because of the reasoning) should make the percentage higher)

  • I got 77% which is understandable, as I don't even like making eye contact with my parents.. They want me to take therapy but apparently for most people it doesn't help.I used to get bullied as well because I am "weird". I also have mild Aspergers and Dyspraxia haha my life sucks...

    >: All I want to do is be am actor but I am just too nervous around people...fml

  • I have been diagnosed with social and anxiety and so has my brother. We are on medication and getting better, and I am able to go into school which I couldn't do before. Have hope everyone, but it is tough. I know how you feel.

    Also stop spamming chain mail things.

  • I am -XXX-. Once you start reading the "I'm Teddy" thing, you cannot quit, but because there are so many people posting it. Get over with it already! I've already seen that message before (1 to 3 months ago) and I'm not dead yet, am I? Or am I a robot writing stuff in here?

  • 63% . I get scared when speaking in front of a class,texting friends,and saying no. It's so much easier to text. When I'm talking to my friends,it's kinda hard but kinda easy. I hope to get over this and become brave.

  • 90%, I think I know why. I don't think it's social anxiety, I think it's just that I can't stand how uneducated people sound, what with southern accents and all, sorry, that I can't stand to be around them.

  • 63% ... hmm... the thing is, i CHOOSE to not be social. I don't have that much of a problem being social (panic attacks, phobia, etc).. i just prefer otherwise. because i envy people too much. my self-esteem sucks. the more i talk to someone, the sadder and more jealous i get.
