What's Your Confidence Quotient?

This Confidence Quotient (CQ) assessment is designed to help you measure your overall confidence level based on key areas of your life. This isn’t a test. Instead, it's a tool, and you can come back to retake it often as you measure your progress and determine what you want to work on next as you grow personally, professionally, and spiritually.
 
INSTRUCTIONS: Read the following 50 questions. As you consider each question, check whether you think the statement is "True" or "False" for you. After you complete the 50 questions below, click on the "Submit" button at the bottom and scroll back to the top of this page. You're Confidence Quotient (CQ) score will be tabulated and displayed using a specific category along with helpful encouragement from Valorie. A higher score (0 - 100) represents a higher sense of confidence.
