Obsessive Belief Questionnaire, OBQ

Author: G. Steketee et al. (2005)

The test is not a means for making a diagnosis.


This inventory lists different attitudes or beliefs that people sometimes hold.

Read each statement carefully and decide how much you agree or disagree with it.

For each of the statements, choose the answer that best describes how you think.

Because people are different, there are no right or wrong answers.

To decide whether a given statement is typical of your way of looking at things, simply keep in mind what you are like most of the time.

In making your ratings, try to avoid using the middle point of the scale (Neither), but rather indicate whether you usually disagree or agree with the statements about your own beliefs and attitudes.
