How Socially Awkward Are You?

Do crowds make you nervous or are you right at home when others surround you? This quiz stands to measure your level of social awkwardness by seeing how you respond to social situations. Whether you cower at your desk in the dark all day or you huddle around the water cooler gossiping with your coworkers, we are going to challenge you to see where you fall on the scale. 

Are you the type that refuses to go to the bathroom anywhere but your home? Do you usually find that you know the answers, but you don't want to speak up during meetings? The way you answer these types of questions will help us figure out whether you feel comfortable in your own skin or if you could use a little confidence booster. Not everyone is designed to be extrovert, but you should be happy with yourself no matter what circumstances you find yourself in. 

Share your innermost thoughts about others with us, and we'll be able to tell you about your comfort level with others. Try to answer as truthfully as you can, and we'll make the best estimate based on what you've told us. Ready to find out?
