This is an interactive version of the Self Monitoring Scale.

Introduction: The self monitoring scale measures the extent to which an individual has the will and ability to modify how they are perceived by others. This test was developed by Mark Snyder (1974).

Procedure: The test consists of twenty five items that could possibly apply to yourself that you must rate as true or false. Each item should be responded to quickly without over-thinking. The test should take no more than two minutes.

Informed consent: This test is part of a research project and so scores will be recorded and will be used and possibly shared with other researchers. Any information that could reasonably be used to identify you will not be shared.
