It simply says "anxiety disorder".

The thing is those tests are made for psychopathology assessment, but since they are standardized and thus sound "serious", they tend to be (ab)used for almost everything. Well, I guess they could be of some use in those rare cases where HR's biggest problem is triaging the amount of mentally ill applying for a given job.
