4) You feel nervous when a group of people is walking towards you (in your direction) along the road. ________ 

5) Often you dream about falling from a height, being chased by a monster or not being able to do what you are asked to do. ________ 

6) You raise your voice during arguments. ________

12) During conversations you think of what you have to say and so do not listen to other person. ________ 

13) When somebody asks a question you are sacred to answer because the answer may be wrong but when the correct answer was given you know you had the right answer. ________ 

14) When your friends get new clothes or special things you feel miserable till you too get similar things. ________ 

15) You have many plans, and begin some of them but are not able to complete many of them. ________

17) You normally are shy to ask others to help you________ 

18) You often think about your past hurts and deprivations and find yourself getting very angry and frustrated. ________ 

19) You find it difficult to genuinely appreciate others for their achievements. ________ 

20) If your work is criticized or if you are not chosen for a job you sulk and avoid it completely. ________

The number of questions you have answered in the negative is the index of your self –esteem. The more questions you answer in the negative, the more self-esteem you are supposed to have. But, even five negative answers would be enough to build on your sense of self-esteem.
