I'm an esthetician student and I have a project due later today. I chose acne because I used to suffer from it and I am very interested in how it affected other people. For me, I went through very serious depression and had to attend therapy (no, I was not on accutane). Please fill this questionnaire out and please have your friends do the same so that I can better understand how acne affects other people! Thank you!!! :]

P.S. Please be as honest as possible. Any questions that you do not qualify to answer, for example the couple questions if you are single, please reply with an "N/A".

2) What grade of acne do you suffer from?

Grade I Acne - Minor breakouts, mostly blackheads and a few blemishes.

Grade III Acne - Red and inflamed, many blemishes.

Grade IV Acne - Cystic acne and inflammation.

4) Does acne affect the likelihood of you befriending a person? (I.E. - Less likely to friend someone with bad acne.)

5) Do you feel like acne affects how many friends you have? (I.E. - Clearer skin means more friends.)

6) When you see someone with bad acne do you make bad comments about it?

7) When you see someone with bad acne do you consciously think badly about it, even if you don't make any comments?

Grade IV Acne - Cystic acne and inflammation.

Some of both worlds.

3) Do you feel like acne effects how introverted/extroverted (shy/outgoing) you are?

It only really does when someone makes a comment on it. Sometimes it can make me feel worse if I'm breaking out when I'm already in a bad situation, but I try to not let it get to me and push myself to go out and act like it's not there.

4) Does acne affect the likelihood of you befriending a person? (I.E. - Less likely to friend someone with bad acne.)

Not neccisarily

7) When you see someone with bad acne do you consciously think badly about it, even if you don't make any comments?

No, I usually think something along the lines of "Atleast it's not just me with bad acne" as I'm more used to seeing clear skinned people

No

My sister, but I was about 5 years old at the time, and her acne was mild.

b) Yes, no matter how bad it was.

Acne plays no part in it, depends on if I get along with them.

a) Yes, if it wasn't too bad.

c) Only if they were very attractive under the acne.

Both A & C

12) Does acne have any affect on whether or not you date a person?

Yes, I wouldn't date anyone with bad acne, as I have high standards though I obviously wouldn't care if they had very mild acne.

13) Do you have a boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/husband/etc. who suffers from acne?

Change have to had and suffers to suffered. Couldn't even tell they were wearing as much make up as they were until I stopped by her house when she wasn't expecting me and I noticed some pretty well defined scarring on her cheeks, it made me feel really good though knowing that she knew what it's like.

14) What grade of acne do they suffer from?

When I last saw them (a while ago) very mild, a few non inflamed spots, maybe 1 inflamed.

15) Does their acne bother you?

It didn't, currently single.

16) Do you find them less attractive because of their acne?

No, it wasn't nearly enough, barely noticable.

18) Do you think acne affects whether or not you get a job you are interviewing for?

-b) It depends on what job. (If people had morals, then no, it wouldn't, but from personal experience I can say in some jobs it does affect).

19) If you were hiring a person to work for you, would you take their acne into consideration?

-c) No.

20) If you have any other comments, or any other information that you would like to share that you feel would be helpful to me, please do so now:

-My answers are as they are because I know how it feels to be a sufferer - I can sympathise. However, many people with no/very mild acne are very shallow people, and so their answers are likely to be very different. In asking on an acne forum, you aren't likely to get results true to that of the majority of people.

I notice it is past your due date, but anyhow....

1) Do you suffer from acne?

Yes

By your definition, Grade II to III acne at my worst (few blackheads, many large & inflamed pimples), & Grade I currently, but more deep whiteheads than blackheads (that lovely, bumpy cottage cheese texture look on the chin...).

3) Do you feel like acne effects how introverted/extroverted (shy/outgoing) you are?

No, I am introverted & shy even with clearer skin (and introverted does NOT equal shy....please look into the difference). I think being introverted is perfectly healthy, but I am working on my shyness which is related to insecurity.

3) Do you feel like acne effects how introverted/extroverted (shy/outgoing) you are?

No, I do not determine friendship with other's by their skin.

5) Do you feel like acne affects how many friends you have? (I.E. - Clearer skin means more friends.)

Yes. It effects both my confidence towards them and their attitude towards me.

6) When you see someone with bad acne do you make bad comments about it?

No!

7) When you see someone with bad acne do you consciously think badly about it, even if you don't make any comments?

No. I feel sorry for them and think, "I know what you're going through."

8) Have you ever not befriended someone because they had problems with acne?

No. I feel more comfortable around people with acne, like we can be real with eachother.

19) If you were hiring a person to work for you, would you take their acne into consideration?

c) No.

20) If you have any other comments, or any other information that you would like to share that you feel would be helpful to me, please do so now:

Comments: Taking age, gender, and the length of time into account would help determine the results. ie: a twenty five year old woman who has had mild acne for ten years might have just as hard a time as the 14 year old boy with a severe case. Other than that, excellent survey, glad to participate, and good luck!

I'm an esthetician student and I have a project due later today. I chose acne because I used to suffer from it and I am very interested in how it affected other people. For me, I went through very serious depression and had to attend therapy (no, I was not on accutane). Please fill this questionnaire out and please have your friends do the same so that I can better understand how acne affects other people! Thank you!!! :]
