This Burnout test was developed based on the Maslach Burnout Inventory test, which was created by Dr. Christine Maslach, Professor Emerita of Psychology at the University of California at Berkeley. The test on this page is using a more informal approach to giving you an assessment on whether you might be suffering from Burnout. It must not be used as a diagnostic technique since it has not been validated through controlled scientific tests. If you feel you are suffering from Burnout, please seek medical attention from a trained health care provider.
