Social Anxiety

Social anxiety disorder is one of the most common anxiety disorders, affecting between 7 and 13% of the population. People with social anxiety disorder tend to feel quite nervous or uncomfortable in social situations. They are very concerned that they will do something embarrassing or humiliating, or that others will think badly of them. These individuals are very self-conscious and constantly feel “on stage.”

The last entry is listed below.  Please note the time and allow 5 minutes for this to update to your score.

A score is not a diagnosis, and a screening questionnaire doesn’t replace a professional. The score is provided to help you determine whether it would be a good idea to consult a professional about your mood, and to track your changes over time.

As a rough guide, SPIN scores indicate the following levels of social anxiety:
< 20:none
20’s: mild
50’s:very severe
