Personal Growth Quiz: Test Your Level of Self-Esteem

February 20, 2024

If you were fully aware of how you talk to yourself and talk to the world about who you are, you’d be shocked. We’re all guilty of this to some small degree, but for many their self-talk is debilitating.


Take a minute to answer these questions:

  • Are you talking yourself out of living your fullest life with the self-concept you’ve created?
  • Who do you tell yourself you are with your self-talk?
  • Which of the following scenarios is closest to your self-talk? Maybe you are saying to yourself, “This is the year I’m going straight to the top,” “This is the year I become a superstar,” or “I’ve got everything going for me and this is my year.” Or you could be telling yourself, “Things don’t look like they’re going to be much better this year; in fact it might be a little worse than last year,” “Maybe it’s time for some belt tightening; I don’t want to take any chances,” or even “You never know what could happen, better to be safe than sorry.”


Is there any doubt in your mind which of these examples shows the confidence that will build self-esteem, and which are the ones that demonstrate low self-esteem?

Here are a couple more personal development questions in follow-up:

  • Which type of self-talk creates a better atmosphere for personal success and living an abundant life?
  • What do you think is the difference in income and professional development between people with these two types of self-talk?
  • What goals do you think each of these people possesses?


  • Who is having more fun and excitement?
  • Who do you want to be?

Your level of self-esteem sets the personal success bar for everything about you. Every decision you make is filtered through your self-concept. Your self-concept is the out-picturing of your self-esteem.

Take a look at just eight reflections of your level of self-esteem:

  1. Your career choice
  2. Your friends
  3. Your primary relationship wit
