The questions in this scale ask about your feelings and thoughts during the last week. In each case, you will be asked to indicate how often you felt or thought a certain way. Although some of the questions are similar, there are differences between them and you should treat each one as a separate question. The best approach is to answer fairly quickly. That is, don’t try to count up the number of times you felt a particular way; rather indicate the response that seems like a reasonable estimate.
This scale consists of a number of words that describe different feelings and emotions. Read each item and then indicate to what extent you have felt this way over the past week.
Please rate each of the following statements with the number that best describes your own opinion of what is generally true for you.
