Self Esteem Tests


Self esteem tests are the first step
to take in your personal development journey.


because there is no point in wasting
your time in positive thinking,
goal setting or any success programs,
books and videos (let alone the law of attraction) if you have self esteem issues.

Your self esteem is the source of your behavior, well-being and success so if your life right now is not what you would like it to be, maybe a self esteem assessment is what you need to do first.

I have spent so much time reading books and watching videos on personal development myself (not that they weren't any good, I've loved them) before to realise that my problem was low self esteem, so I believe a self esteem inventory can give you a good idea on where you are at and what need to be done to improve your life before you start anything else.

So I put together a couple of renowned self esteem questionnaire for you.

  • The first one is the Rosenberg self Esteem Scale (1965), developed by Dr Morris Rosenberg and is a widely-used self esteem measure in social science research. It is a ten-questions test answered on a four-point scale — from strongly agree to strongly disagree.

  • The second one is the Sorensen Self Esteem Test (taken from the book Breaking the Chain of Low Self-Esteem , chapter 1), courtesy of Dr Marilyn J. Sorensen herself who gave me the permission to pass it on to you. It is more of an "in depth" 50 items test (copyrighted by Marilyn J Sorensen, PhD, Portland) and may open your eyes about your level of self esteem (it did it to me anyway). Marilyn J. Sorensen, PhD, is a well known expert in self esteem as well as the author of five books on the subject.

I do believe these two tests will be enough for a full self esteem assessment.

Before you start, remember that these tests are not an indication of your worth as a person, they are just a way to find out what opinion you have of yourself (your self esteem).
