The OAS-2 is a shortened version of the Other as Shamer Scale and consists of 8items that assess external shame (i.e., global judgments of how people think others view them). Respondents are asked to indicate the frequency on a 5-point scale (0 = Never; 4 = Almost always) of their feelings and experiences to items such as ‘‘Other people see me as small and insignificant’’.
