How high is your self-esteem according to the Rosenberg scale?

Developed by sociologist Dr. Morris Rosenberg, the Rosenberg scale is a self-esteem measure widely used in social-science research. It uses a scale of 0-30 where a score less than 15 may indicate a problematic low self esteem. The scale consists of ten statements that you could possibly apply to you that you must rate on how much you agree with each. The items should be answered quickly without overthinking, your first inclination is what you should put down. The Rosenberg scale has been used in more than one hundred research projects.

Take this test to find out your level of self-esteem. Remember that there no right or wrong answers here!  

On the whole, I am satisfied with myself.

You have an extremely low self-esteem

Your test results indicate that you may be suffering from low-self esteem. You frequently compare yourself to others, focus heavily on your shortcomings, and are quick to dismiss your accomplishments. A person who does not love himself and above all does not respect himself might end up in toxic relationships and be emotionally dependent on others. It is very likely that you send messages to yourself similar to “I can’t”, “I’m not good at this” “I’m going to fail” “I do not deserve to be loved”. Even if you don’t do it consciously, these messages are presented in a more or less subtle way in your day to day. These thoughts impair your desire to start a new project and sabotage your personal well-being. What can you do to improve your self-esteem? First of all, be realistic, do not try to change the impossible, and be aware of your weaknesses and your strengths. A good knowledge of yourself is the most effective tool to achieve success in life and develop your emotional well-being. Second, be grateful for your personal qualities and pay no attention by pressures imposed by society. And finally, see a specialist to address your problem. An appointment with a psychologist can help guide you to identify the root of the problem.   

You balance between self-respect and self-depreciation

Your test result indicates that there is a real potential to experience problems with anxiety if your self-esteem issues aren't addressed. You're obsessed with being perfect. Chances are that you hate your body. You think that you bring nothing to the table. At times, you feel oversensitive, fearful, and anxious. You believe that your own thoughts and feelings aren't important to others. How do you overcome these issues? You need to learn to forgive yourself for your mistakes because no one is perfect. Also, you need to consciously think how reasonable and manageable your goals are before striving for them. Stop thinking others are better than you. Admire others' traits, but not at the expense of your own. Good self-help information at this stage can prove helpful in preventing self-esteem and the anxiety it causes from escalating and becoming a disorder. Also, working with an experienced therapist/coach/counselor is the most effective way to identify and address anxiety-producing behavior, such as low self-esteem. 

You respect yourself but there is still work to be done

Your test result indicates that you have a quite healthy relationship with yourself in terms of self-esteem. You know both your weak and strong sides. When something goes wrong, you try to understand why it happened that way, instead of instantly blaming yourself. It's a very good thing, and we're happy for you. However, sometimes you're too hard on yourself. You blame yourself for not being smart enough, flexible enough, etc. Although this happens rarely, it throws you off balance easily. It keeps you from moving forward and enjoying your life to the fullest. Our tip is simple: let it go! Set a new goal, spend an evening with friends, share your worries with your loved ones, and realize that everyone has negative moments from time to time. It's a part of our lives. Be more forgiving and stop taking minor failures close to heart. We're sure everything will be just fine and you'll fulfill all your beautiful dreams! Be sure to share this test with your friends. Who knows? Maybe this test will help them identify serious problems that need to be addressed. 

You have a very high self-esteem

Congratulations! You love yourself and think very highly of yourself as a person, professional, girlfriend/boyfriend, etc. Instead of focusing on your shortcomings, you keep improving yourself every day, despite of everything. This is a very smart approach. You learn from your mistakes and use yor experience for achieving new heights. Truth be told, your level of self-esteem is quite exemplary. You never doubt what you can do. Your self-confidence allows you to be initiative, creative, and adventurous. It opens new possibilities in front of you, which is something few people can enjoy.  Share this test with your friends and see what they think about themselves! If a friend of yours happens to get a negative result, be sure to support them and find kind words!
