Do you find yourself being emotionally distant, unable to fully express your feelings, or hesitant to share your vulnerabilities with your partner? If so, you’re not alone. Many people experience varying degrees of emotional availability, and it can often make it hard for them to form deep connections with people. Be it close friends or a romantic interest, vulnerability is essential. Often a fear of being emotional can stop you from sharing your inner thoughts and feelings even though you want to, thus limiting your relationships.

This quiz, created by a psychologist, goes beyond a simple emotionally unavailable test or an emotional detachment test. It’s a tool for self-reflection designed to help you explore areas where you might be experiencing difficulties with emotional connection. Emotional detachment disorder is more common than you think. The first step to overcoming it, is identifying it.

This quiz aims to address questions like “am I emotionally detached” or “am I emotionally cold,” which might be running through your head. Be prepared to encounter questions that might make you feel slightly uncomfortable. Engaging with these moments of discomfort, however, can be crucial for growth and understanding.

Remember, there are no right or wrong answers, only opportunities to learn more about yourself and your emotional availability in your relationships.
