Sorensen Self Esteem Test

  • Do you think you may suffer from low self-esteem? This questionnaire will help you find out. Low self-esteem (LSE) is often misunderstood, and it is even misdiagnosed by many therapists as being a secondary concern. Rather than being merely a symptom, LSE is frequently the root cause of many psychological, emotional, personal and relationship issues. Treatments that do not focus on recovery from LSE may not be be effective, because they are not dealing with the core issue.
