A person with high self-esteem is confident in himself, believes that he will be able to overcome obstacles and failures, and is not afraid to achieve his goal. As self-esteem decreases, self-depreciation occurs, a person is afraid to try something new, gets disappointed in himself at the slightest failure, which results in a worsening of emotional well-being. Sometimes it seems that everything we do is not successful – but maybe the reason for this is our own thinking errors?
You can assess your self-esteem using the ROSENBERG SELF-ESTEEM SCALE
The table contains statements about your attitude towards yourself.
If you strongly agree with the statement, choose VS
If you agree, choose S
If you do not agree, choose N
If the statement does not suit you at all, choose VN
Interpretation of the results: Calculate the sum of points obtained (by adding up the numbers in the table for the selected answers). The higher the amount, the higher your self-confidence and your self-esteem. Conversely, the lower the score, the worse you rate yourself.
A score lower than 15 indicates possibly too low self-esteem (self-confidence). 15-25 points indicate average self-esteem (self-confidence). 26-30 points indicate strongly expressed self-confidence
