8 thoughts on “A Quiz to Help You Uncover Your Level of Anxiety

    Self care mentions exercise, but I would highlight it. When you are “stewing,” stuck, unable to move one, I really believe that getting outside and walking (or running or anything where you get moving) can short circuit the immediate “closed loop” of thinking about X, which leads to anxiety, which leads to more unproductive obsessing about X….

    This quiz isn’t very accurate. I scored a fourteen but have hardly any anxiety. Numbers five and six are misleading- those can be symptoms of almost anything, including Depression and ADHD. Being unable to relax can just be a part of being overstressed.

        I like this questionnaire. My score was 20. I thought question 7 was hard to answer because everybody could have a different opinion what they considered awful.

    I scored 18, not bad considering that I take a variety of pills for GAD and nervous depression, lol.
    What I really wanted to say is that I take issue with Raye who, it would seem, has never struggled with severe, crippling anxiety. If he/she had, the validity of this measure would not have been questioned.

    I recommend to use this tool; tried it myself and it makes sense! Will include it in my coaching with those who endlessly say they are actively searching for Mr./Ms. Perfect but actually avoiding it due to their fears and anxieties: loss of control, intimacy difficulty, repeating parents’ mistakes and so on. The ‘Strategies to Take Action’ are very valuable. Thanks!
