Once you've completed the scale, add together all of the numbers assigned to each response you chose, and review the appropriate feedback below.

If Your Score Ranged From:

10-25 - Your score indicates that you have a fairly poor sense of your self worth. And chances are that your ideas about yourself are not really accurate - you may be focusing too much on the negative and ignoring the many positive aspects of who you are as a person. Poor self worth is something you should consider working on because it can interfere with your interest in and ability to go after challenging goals. It can also make it more difficult for you to find a healthy romantic relationship, with a partner who values you as a person and who treats you well. Click here to learn more about what you can do to work on developing a more positive sense of self worth.

26-40 - Your score indicates that your sense of self worth is moderate - lower in some areas and higher in others. Although no one feels they're the best at everything (and, of course, no one actually is the best at everything), it's possible that some of your more negative feelings about yourself could be improved by a change of focus, or working harder to accomplish certain goals. Click here to learn more about what you can do to charge up your self worth batteries wherever needed.

41-50 - Your score indicates that you have a fairly positive sense of your self worth. That's great, because feeling this way can improve your ability to successfully accomplish challenging goals, and to find and maintain a healthy romantic relationship. To help maintain that positive perspective, click here to learn about some strategies you can use to maintain a healthy and well-grounded sense of self.
