29. A couple of years ago it probably would have been much worse. Moving to London (strangers are busy and most of the time don't care what you do) and having a discussion in class with other students has helped a lot to overcome my fears.

I got 71, middle ground I guess, although I suppose I'm more paranoid and neurotic than anxious

was expecting less as thought i was more on the side of high generalised anxiety, but reading through the situations, it does make sense

6. It's very subjective, people's concept of "mild", "moderate", "severe" etc vary vastly. I wouldn't trust this for a self-diagnosis of anything.

I got 82, surprised it's not higher.

The question about walking into a room when everyone is already seated is such a fear of mine.
I have actually avoided lectures and tutorials if I'm a few minutes late because I can't face walking in in front of everyone.

28, lot lower than expected. Maybe I subconsciously lied a bit :/ I think that if I was put into some of those situations right now, my score would be higher because I'm usually quite anxious in public

32. Although I probably should be concerned about certain things a little bit more.

'40 (fear) + 31 (avoidance) = 71
You have marked social anxiety disorder.'

Ah.. well it wouldn't be a surprise if i did have the elements of this disorder. If i had taken this test a few years ago, my anxiety would be somewhere in the hundreds i am sure!! Felt good to see the ones that i could now put as mild or none whereas before i would have marked a few as severe and would have usually avoided the situation

You do not have a social anxiety disorder.

Then you don't need a test. If you are scared of people judging you, you wont like any of the situations on the test. :confused:
By breaking it down you can see exactly how much you are affected by social anxiety.

(Original post by Madam, I'm Adam)
That's amazing, do you mind me asking how you managed to achieve this and overcome it? Anything you would recommend that worked for you?
I didn't follow a strict program or anything though I'm sure one exists, so I don't really know how to describe it.
But the first change is a mindset shift. Stop looking it as a component of you, or an entity in your way. That gives it substance. Consider it as a habit that you're trying to break.
I personally did it a lot of stuff due to SA without realising. A lot of social anxiety help states to "be yourself" and you should be able to do it without thinking - true... if you're normal. At this stage you need to be thinking a lot, to minimize missing out things you're doing that are contributing to it without realizing. Someone tells a joke? You might not have ever thought about it but do you laugh along with anyone else?
Conscious manifestations of social anxiety - where you're fully aware what you're doing... well all I can suggest is forcing yourself to do the opposite. Ask yourself what you would do if you didn't have SA. For example, if your friends ask you out, go out. If someone starts a conversation with you then try and keep it going. If you're not talking to anyone, realize this and start a conversation etc.
It's tiring but did pay off. The constant thinking about what you are doing makes you more self conscious unfortunately (on top of what you already are) so you have to force yourself to do the "right" thing even harder. Over time you've formed a new habit and you don't have to think about it anymore. And at the same time, you can't be in your head all the time and you need to be aware of what's happening in your social situation.

Hope some of this helped. Tbh my main problem in overcoming SA was the lack of social situations open to me to try and fix it. I'm sure there are better tips on the net, but any semi-decent advice should work with enough effort.
