Body Image Survey DIRECTIONS
  • First look at the drawings for your gender,
    choose the number below the figure that best
    illustrates (A) how you think you currently look
    (that is, the figure that best represents your
    actual size).
  • Then choose the figure that illustrates (B) how
    you would like to look (your ideal figure).
  • Choose what you think is attractive for the
    opposite sex.
  • Choose what you think the opposite sex would
    choose as attractive for your gender.
  • The numerical difference between your views of
    how you think you look and how you would like to
    look (A - B) represents your self-ideal
  • Finally, rate how ashamed you are of any body
    image discrepancy from 0 (not at all) to 5
    (extremely). If you have a shame score of 3 or
    more, you should consider talking to a close
    friend or counselor about these feelings.
