Multidimensional Anxiety Test

Anxiety is one of the most common mental illnesses, affecting about 18% of the adult population in any given year. Moderate to severe anxiety can have debilitating impacts on daily functioning, interfere with relationships, and contribute to additional physical or mental health conditions.

However, the multidimensional nature of anxiety is not well understood, leading to a lack of knowledge that often prevents those who suffer from anxiety from understanding their condition in depth. The present Anxiety Test attempts to rectify this problem by approaching anxiety from a multidimensional perspective.

The Multidimensional Anxiety Quiz is based on a wealth of scientific literature describing common anxiety signs and symptoms. However, free online tests such as this are solely initial considerations of the concept being examined and cannot provide entirely accurate assessments of your personality, character, or any components of your psychological state. This test is to be used for screening purposes only. A definitive mental health diagnosis can be made only by a physician, psychiatrist, or other mental health professional.

As the publishers of this free online anxiety test (which allows you to screen yourself for the signs and symptoms of anxiety, as measured according to a multidimensional index and which might otherwise remain unrecognized), we have strived to make the test as reliable, valid, and comprehensive as possible by subjecting the instrument test to statistical controls and validation. Though developed and statistically validated by psychology professionals, free online tests such as the present Multidimensional Anxiety Test do not provide professional assessments or recommendations of any kind; the test results of our free online anxiety test are provided “as-is.” For more detailed information about the current test or any of our other online psychological tests, please consult our Terms of Service.
