10+23. It's particularly amusing in the face of near lifelong marked paranoia and fairly serious general social issues :P

Another one of those ones that are just asking the wrong questions for the wrong reasons, really. That and the fact that most of my physical anxiety reactions are accompanied by a remarkable lack of emotional ones, which is rather incredibly annoying at times. It can be incredibly jarring to have a fairly extreme disconnect between physical reaction and emotional state, some days.

Weirdly enough, I really don't care about interacting with salespeople in normal situations (such as returning an item, I go downhill if it's something awkward like me spilling something). I know salespeople are a big thing for most of the people I know with any level of social anxiety.
I'm like this too. A few years ago i would have been terrible at it and had difficulties even buying food at a McDonald's, but after a long bus trip i got used to dealing with people and now i don't understand why people get so stressed when someone tries to sell them something. It's not difficult to tell someone you're not interested in something to me.



So Psychologists were wrong. I think the test would've been more accurate if there had been a fourth option (Crippling, with a point value of 4), which would have allowed more intense preferences, and probably pushed me over the limit.
I would've been just barely pushed over into social anxiety territory as well, since i REALLY don't like the idea of speaking in front of an audience.

13(fear) + 52(avoidance) = 65
You have marked social anxiety.

Huh, I thought it'd be higher. Then again I'm not really nervous or fearful of social interaction, rather just 'egh fuck dat shit'.

I think the test would have been more telling if each of the fear and avoidance scores were multiplied rather than added. That would mean that it doesn't increase when a person avoids a situation without fearing it (or doesn't avoid things that they do fear), which is a less skewed view of someone's social anxiety I would think. Many people would avoid some of these social situations just because they're dumb (YAY GROUP PROJECTS!), not out of any kind of fear. Maybe that would make results too disparate though, with people with mild or higher anxiety having ridiculously higher scores than people with barely any. It just seems kind of crude to have both avoidance and fear of whatever random situation be an equal +1 'anxiousness points'.

I took the test on 164, hope I'm not breaking any rules...

Spoiler: Yaaay (click to show/hide)

Anyway, on the social phobia thing. Would someone mind explaining where I figure this out? It interests me...

I failed a spot check once again :P

42 from me.

Hmm, I personally think I should have a higher score. I guess it's due to the questions not really being those that I really try to avoid (I.e, talking to someone who I know but forgot their name). In addition, I think it might be due to the silly system of having everything add equally to the system, despite them not being similar at all. Fear of speaking in front of an audience is quite different from fear of eating in public or answering your phone in public.

Tarran has the "Tarran Bug", a bug which causes the affected character to repeatedly hit teammates while dual-wielding instead of whatever the hell he is shooting at.

...

Weeeell... I could have crippling social anxiety... Plus, who knows, maybe it's wrong due to some of these being guessed due to not having been in these situations(mostly due to age)

I'll be taking this with a grain of salt.

Agreed, too general to be accurate enough to say 'Yep, it's true. I have sever social anxiety'

25. Probably accurate-ish. Somewhat paranoid, but somewhat outgoing, so it evens out.

22(fear) + 40(avoidance) = 62

I'm actually comfortable with being around the people in general (eating, passing by, doing shopping etc), but large groups around me or performing/talking to a group or being center of attention make me extremely uneasy :P

28 + 45 = 73

Might be a bit biased downwards, though.  I don't so much fear as much as absolutely loathe social contact.


Substituting "dislike" for "fear" increased the score by another 20 points :V
