Your Score:

For every “A” answer, award yourself 3 points. For every “B” answer, 2 points, and for every “C” answer, you get 1 point. Add them all together and find out your results below!

26-30 “The Warrior”: You’re quite the confident one! There is no task that you fear, no obstacle that can stand in your way, and no challenge that you’ll let go unmet. Your confidence may in fact be your greatest asset in life, so hold on tight to it!

16-25 “The Waffler”: You have a fairly healthy degree of confidence in yourself and your abilities. While you might sometimes hesitate, not knowing whether or not you’ll succeed at a task, you always give it the old college try. If you want to succeed, work to strengthen your inner resolve and learn to trust yourself more.

10-15 “The Wallflower”: You may be suffering from a serious lack of self-confidence in your life. No doubt this is holding you back from the success you deserve. Take some time to re-assess your life and focus on those things that you like about yourself, and your proudest achievements
