Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale Test (LSAS)
The Liebowitz Social Anxiety Scale was developed in 1987 by Dr. Michael R. Liebowitz. It is a questionnaire which assesses the way that social phobia/social anxiety plays a role in your life across a variety of situations.
- Read each situation carefully and answer two questions about that situation.
- The first question asks how anxious or fearful you feel in the situation.
- The second question asks how often you avoid the situation.
- If you come across a situation that you ordinarily do not experience, imagine “what if you were faced with that situation,” and then, rate the degree to which you would fear this hypothetical situation and how often you would tend to avoid it.
- Please base your ratings on the way that the situations have affected you in the last week.

NOTE: The results of this test are a guide only and are not intended to be a clinical diagnosis. No diagnosis is being offered. For a clinical diagnosis you will need to speak with your doctor or other qualified health professional.
