What is Your Self-Esteem Level?

Learn to bolster your confidence by taking stock of your traits.

SELF-ESTEEMHow comfortable are you with yourself? Research suggests the higher your self-esteem the happier a life you will have. Indeed, it appears your self-esteem level affects almost, if not every aspect of your psychological self. Knowing your self-esteem level may be very helpful in explaining behaviors you have displayed but don't really understand. Self-esteem also plays a major role in how we act in relationships without peers.

Before taking the self-esteem inventory assessment, settle yourself, get comfortable. Try to avoid any distractions while responding to the statements. When selecting your responses it is important to think of how you usually are, not just how you are at this moment. It is also very important to be honest with yourself.

Finally, remember this is not a test, but a private assessment to help you discover or confirm your self-esteem level. There are no right or wrong, good or bad answers.
