Am I Stressed Quiz?

Understand your capacity to withstand stressful situations


Stress results from an ongoing state of high arousal in the body’s nervous system. It is correlated to having difficulty meeting the expectations or demands that are being made of you.

You will be asked a series of questions about your feelings and experiences over the past week. Questions focus on behavioral, cognitive, and emotional responses to situations that indicate levels of stress and coping.

What does a high score mean?

People who score high for Stress Control are not currently experiencing difficulty coping with stress in their lives. This doesn’t mean that they don’t have any stress at all, but it is at a level that is being coped with well and is not causing other problems for them. They also tend to experience stress in short bursts or in a way that is easy to address and resolve, rather than long periods of unresolved stress over time.


What does a low score mean?

People with low scores for Stress Control are experiencing problematic levels of stress, so that they are no longer coping with the level of stress in their lives. Stress is the brain and body’s natural alerting function. It lets you know when you need to react and do something different to keep yourself safe and happy in the world. Stress becomes problematic when it continues over long periods of time, instead of only in short bursts of activity that is then resolved. Continued stress leads to problems being able to relax or wind down, feeling overwhelmed and overreacting to situations, and feeling jumpy or agitated. It can also impact other cognitive performance skills.

What You Need to Know About Stress Control


Stress is a response to an external “stressor” such as a work deadline, an argument with a loved one, the loss of a job, or a major life change. COVID-19’s impact on health and the economy, clashes about mask mandates, and even crisis fatigue are just a few of the major stressors affecting people all over the world right now. When external stressors are not resolved, stress becomes chronic and can lead to anxiety and depression.
