Self-Scoring Stress Questionnaire


Actors and sports stars use fear to power their best performances. In the same way, pressure can help you excel at work. But too much stress makes you at best ineffective, and at worst physically ill. So how will you cope with stress, and how stressed are you already? Find out with this short questionnaire.

1. How Likely Am I to Suffer Stress?

Read the statements below, and using the scale strongly disagree (1) to strongly agree (3), indicate how the statement applies to your perception of yourself.
  1   2   3
I am not in control of the success or failure I make of my life.
I accept that my work has and will change and welcome the opportunities this gives me.
I have someone at work or outside it who I can confide in.
If there's a disagreement about work, I defer to other people's judgement and abilities.
If a project I am working on fails.

Your Results Revealed.

Add up the numbers next to the statements you most agreed with for the first five questions, then do the same for the second five. The higher you score in the first half the more likely you are to suffer stress; the higher you score in the second half, the more stressed you feel. Scores over 10 in either half suggest that you are either prone to experience stress or are feeling stressed at the moment.

Only You Can Say How Stressed You Truly Feel!
