How Sleepy are You?

If you’re tired or drowsy during the day, or can’t sleep at night, you may need the help of a sleep specialist. Take this simple quiz and find out how you rate on the sleepiness scale.

How likely are you to doze off or fall asleep in the following situations, in contrast to feeling just tired? 

Even if you haven’t done some of these things recently, try to work out how they would have affected you. Use the following scale to choose the most appropriate number for each situation:

0 = no chance of dozing
1 = slight chance of dozing
2 = moderate chance of dozing
3 = high chance of dozing

Sitting and reading
 0  1  2  3
Watching TV  
 0  1  2  3
Sitting inactive in a public place (e.g. a theater or meeting)
 0  1  2  3

Sitting and talking to someone
 0  1  2  3
Sitting quietly after a lunch without alcohol
 0  1  2  3
