Primary use / Purpose: 

Measures an individual’s propensity for blushing.

Background: 

As blushing diffuses the likelihood of negative evaluations (and thus potential rejection) when an individual’s status in a valued group is in jeopardy, people who are particularly concerned with others’ evaluations and with their social relationships should be prone to blush.

Psychometrics:
