Use the Rosenberg Self Esteem Scale to help You Measure Your Level of Self Esteem

It would be a good idea to print out this webpage (you can do that by clicking the print button on your web browser)

For each statement either circle SA (strongly agree), A (agree), D (disagree), SD (strongly disagree)

1. At times, I think I am no good at all. --- SA A D SD

2. I certainly feel useless at times. --- SA A D SD

3. I wish I could have more respect for myself. --- SA A D SD

4. On the whole, i am satisfied with myself. --- SA A D SD

5. I take a positive attitude towards myself. --- SA A D SD

6. I feel I do not have much to be proud of. --- SA A D SD

7. I am able to do things as well as most other people. --- SA A D SD

8. All in all, I am inclined to feel that I am a failure. --- SA A D SD

9. I feel that I have a number of good qualities. --- SA A D SD

10. I feel that I am a person of worth, at least on an equal plane with others. --- SA A D SD

How to calculate your score for the Rosenberg self esteem scale

This is how the scores are calculated:

For statements 1, 2, 3, 6, and 8:

SA (strongly agree) = 0

A (agree) = 1

D (disagree) = 2

SD (strongly disagree) = 3

For statements 4, 5, 7, 9, and 10:

SA (strongly agree) = 3

A (agree) = 2

D (disagree) = 1

SD (strongly disagree) = 0

The range of the scores is 0-30. If you scored between 15 and 25 then your self esteem is pretty good. If you scored below 15, it suggests that you might have low self esteem.

If you scored below 15 then I would recommend using Dr Joe Rubino's Ultimate Self Esteem Formula to boost your self esteem. Even if you score was good it's still worth having a look at Dr Rubino's program
