• The Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale is a self report instrument designed to measure the three related negative emotional states of depression, anxiety and tension/stress. It is scientifically validated and is in the public domain, and thus recreating it for an OKcupid test is perfectly legitimate. For more information about the DASS, please see the website: http://www2.psy.unsw.edu.au/groups/dass/

    This test is the DASS21, the short version of the test.

    Instructions:
    Please read each statement and selection the option which indicates how much the statement applied to you over the past week. There are no right or wrong answers. Do not spend too much time on any statement.
