Determine Your Self Esteem Level with the Rosenberg Self Esteem Scale



The Rosenberg self esteem scale was developed by Dr Morris Rosenberg and is a widely used self esteem measure in social science research.

The scale is a ten item scale with items answered on a point scale. Its point scale ranges from strongly agree to strongly disagree, like those customer service surveys you have to do sometimes.

This scale is a helpful tool because it can give you a numerical indication of your self esteem health. The clearer you are about your self esteem, the better you care learn to take care of yourself.
