You have very severe social anxiety.

35 exactly. Huh. I'd think it would be higher. Probably could be higher if I changed some answers.

Things like "performing in front of an audience" or "giving a party" are things that I don't really think of as avoiding as it is me just not attempting most of them in the first place. Why would I hold a party when I'm an introverted nerd who has relatively few good friends to attend the party and prefers doing his own things by himself? Do I fear holding a party and avoid it out of fear? no, I just don't have an interest in parties in the first place. Dunno how to answer a question like that then, but if I counted it as avoidance the score would be higher.

Performing in front of people is a thing I prefer not to do, (fear:2 avoidance:1) but when I absolutely have to do it I'll suck it up. I feel kinda awkward eating public but don't fear it and can do it no problems. Telephone in public is fine, small group activities are annoying and awkward and cause some dread but if I gotta do it I gotta do it. (fear:1 avoidance:1) Public restrooms are nasty. (fear:1 avoidance:2)

7 - 43 = 50

I strongly avoid being social.  This test seems to think avoidance based on setting/what people are already doing/what you are going to do, counts the same...  So that is why it isn't higher... >.>
Maybe I should have a higher fear, but I just don't see it that way, at least for now.

58. Barely into moderate. That sounds about right, really. I'm mostly good but there's some stuff I really don't like doing.

14. Would have been about 40 if I included the stuff that I consider rude. I DO avoid looking people I don't know straight in the eyes, but not out of fear - staring at someone who doesn't know you is mucho creepy. :P

12(fear) + 14(avoidance) = 26

I'm a lot better than I used to be. I dislike talking on the phone in general, partly because I don't hear very well and partly because I had a phone strapped on my head 8 hours a day for 15+ years.

Scored pretty high on the "looking a stranger in the eyes" thing, but that's just my mild Aspie-like tendencies. I can do it if I need to for an interview or something, but I'm always concerned that I'm then going to come off as some overly intense freak with goggle eyes who NEVER BLINKS.

Also scored relatively high on the "high pressure salesperson" thing, mostly because I just hate salespeople. Sales and marketing are the Devil's playthings.

Some of the other stuff is very conditional. No problem going to a party with a bunch of friends. But party with a bunch of people I barely know? Yeah, I'll be the guy standing over in the corner by himself trying to appear very interested and busy inspecting the hors d'oeuvre plate. Or clinging like a barnacle to the one person who I know slightly better than the rest.

Or using a public restroom, because they're usually so nasty (is that a fear of nastiness, or can we all just agree that public men's restrooms are horrible?).

Truth be told, as someone who has cleaned a lot of public restrooms, women's restrooms are always far, FAR filthier. It's uncanny. Men's rooms are rarely nice (most people that clean public restrooms give no fucks, so they end up disgusting. I give a shit, and they end up smelling nicely and not nice LOOKING, but at least discernibly clean.) but they are often better than the women's room.

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.


Same here. I often put avoidance without fear. There are some things that just physically repulse me without any mental or emotional input: Interacting with someone for relationship/sexual reasons. I enjoy flirting and stuff, but every time I try to flirt with someone, my body is like, "YOU CAN NO LONGER SPEAK AND DESPERATELY NEED TO WALK THIS WAY OVER HERE AWAY FROM THERE." Hugely frustrating.

41 (fear) + 40 (avoidance) = 81. 

To be fair, avoidance is that low because I've learned that it's difficult to get around many of these situations, so I've given up on trying.  It's a rather unsurprising result, to be honest; my heart rate goes up playing multiplayer games where I can't even see my opponent, much less actually dealing with people.

36, with 24 in fear, and 12 in avoidance.
Kinda struck me as a flawed test, for the previously mentioned reasons, but y'know, still semi-accurate, I'd say.
I mean, I did try to generally look at it from the social standpoint, but even then, there aren't many situations I'd avoid based on that sort of stuff.

I can't think of any social situations I outright fear any more...or what I conceptualised as feared at least. Or are capable of recognising as fear.

There are times when I avoid a situation because I lack the emotional energy to deal with that situation, but that's not what I'd call fear...or things I don't do because I either physically can't. Like peeing in public bathrooms, at least in urinals. It's not even anxiety, I just physically can't pee without a closed door and isolated space. I can use the cubicle though so not much of an issue. Shy bladder, what you gonna do?

I took fear as "dread". As in "Oh god damn it please no I don't want to do this help.".
