The IDRlabs Homophobia Test is the property of IDRlabs International. The original research was carried out by psychologists Lester Wright, Henry Adams, and Jeffery Bernat, in association with the University of Georgia and Western Michigan University.

The Homophobia Test is a widely-used instrument to measure this psychological construct. The inclusion of factors such as behavioral aggression and avoidance, in addition to attitudes and beliefs, differentiate the Homophobia Test from similar instruments. Free online tests such as this are simply first glances at the psychological concept being measured and cannot provide completely accurate assessments of your personality or psychological state.

As the publishers of this free online homophobia test, which allows you to discover your personal levels of homophobia and potential psychological outcomes on the scales of negative affect, behavioral, and cognitive negativism, we have strived to make the test as reliable, valid, accurate, and comprehensive as possible. While other homophobia measures have been criticized for not examining the full range of this construct, this homophobia test assesses scores on three distinct, associated scales. Like other online psychological tests such as our DSM Test, Psychopathy Test, Dark Triad Test, and Dark Core Test, as well as professional measures, our free online test is subjected to statistical controls and validation in order to make the results dependable and precise.

The authors of this free online test are certified in the use of numerous psychological tests and have worked professionally with psychometrics, typology, and personality testing. Prior to using our free homophobia test, please note that while some of the results provided may be compatible with the results of other tests and training materials, this test should not be confused with official trademarked tests. The results of our free online homophobia test are provided "as-is” and should not be interpreted as the equivalent of professional advice.
