Interpretation of Your Score

Score: 20 - 30
You are experiencing a normal response to life and handling stress well. You are not subject to burnout. Continue your approach to life and how you are managing your stress. Consider helping or supporting others around you who exhibit signs of stress.

Score: 31 - 40
You are beginning to experience a mild amount of burnout and may be feeling a slight bit of concern. Don't let your stress level sneak up on you. Use stress management techniques to proactively manage your stress and prevent additional steps toward burnout.

Score: 41 - 60
You probably have a moderate amount of burnout. You may have been more of a possibility thinker but now are experiencing a sense of some limitations in thinking about solutions or options. This indicates that your perspective may be narrowing which will cause you to see issues as worse than they are. Be proactive in using stress management techniques.

Score: 61 - 80
You may have a significant amount of burnout. Your perspective about positivity and possibility may be limited. Your energy, stamina, physical well-being and ability to function may be limited as well. Seek help from a friend or professional to gain possibility perspective and to assist you in practicing stress management and stress reduction techniques.

Score: 81 - 100
You probably have such a significant amount of burnout that you feel limited about the possibility of anything ever changing. Though there is hope and help, it may be difficult for you to see it. Reach out to get assistance from a medical professional or counselor. Be aggressive with stress reduction and stress management techniques.

What is Stress and how does it lead to Burnout?

The stress you feel results from how you react to the stressors in life you experience. “Stressors” include life events such as job loss, financial difficulties, arguments, a heavy work/school load or loss of a loved one. Different individuals respond to these stressors differently. That is why there can be different levels of stress experienced by different people in the same situation.

Stress is not burnout – but burnout comes from stress. When a person experiences a set of stressors, if those stressors are not processed in a healthy way the stress experienced is high and builds with each new stressful experience. If a person continues to experience stress and does not process it well, that person is on a path to burnout. Though “burnout” is often used in a work setting, it applies to anyone. Burnout is when a person cannot function adequately anymore; there is no more physical, emotional or nervous energy left.

A phenomenon unique to this issue is the differing ways in which people process stress. How many stressors a person experiences determines how much stress exists. How that stress is processed determines how much stress is felt and how close the person is to burnout. One individual can experience very few stressors, not process the stress well, and it can lead to burnout. Another person can experience an enormous amount of stressors, process each in a healthy way, not feel a high level of stress, and never experience burnout.

Note: The test above is designed to give you an indication of how you may be experiencing burnout. Different people react to stress and burnout differently. It is not intended to be a scientific analysis or assessment. Different people react to stress and burnout differently. This information is not designed to diagnose or treat your stress or symptoms of burnout. Consult your medical doctor, counselor or mental health professional if you feel that you need help regarding the handling of stress or dealing with burnout.
