Calculate the total score. Add the points to all points, and change the sign to the opposite in paragraphs 1, 2, 4, 5, 9, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 23, 24, 26, 30 (for example, if you have -2, count +2). A total score ranging from +90 to +54 means that you have a very high degree of self-confidence. An estimate ranging from +53 to +26 means an average degree of self-confidence, from +26 to 0 - a low degree of self-confidence. The interval from 0 to -26 occupies a zone of low self-doubt; from -26 to -53 in the total gain insecure people, from -54 to -90 are estimates of those who are very much not sure about themselves.
