Self Esteem Quiz

This questionnaire is designed to measure how you see yourself, or feel about yourself. It will help you determine if your self-esteem is strong or might need a boost. Please read and answer each item as accurately and honestly as you can, by choosing how much you feel the statement applies to you. There are no right or wrong answers. Do not spend too much time on any one statement. If you are not sure, base your answer on what you emotionally feel, more than what you think to be true.

0 False, not at all true
1 Slightly true
