How To Interpret This Test
To calculate your emotional freedom score, total the numbers corresponding to your responses.

  • A score of 30-40 suggests that you’re experiencing a considerable level of emotional freedom in your life.
  • A score of 15-29 suggests a moderate level.
  • A score of 14 or below suggests a beginning level.
  • A zero score (and it takes courage to admit that) indicates you haven’t found emotional freedom yet, but the good news is that you can start discovering it now!

Whatever your score, be compassionate when you identify areas you’d like to improve. Realize that we all have a ways to go. Emotional freedom isn’t some place you arrive at and just stay there. It’s an ongoing blossoming.
