SOCIAL PHOBIA SURVEY
My Survey Score
The score I received from the survey came out to be a little above the “average range.” My calculated total was a thirty-one. I feel that my score is about right.

When someone has a problem speaking to a group of people or even a single person that is something that she look into seriously; I believe that there’s some sort of childhood history that is behind this phobia.
