Test - Competency for stress resiliency

What messes up your life ?

Stress is so well entrenched in our lives that there is hardly anyone not realizing it. Many people maintain that they experience an elevated level of stress most of the time. Increased stress affects our feeling of happiness as well as our productivity and performance at work. Yet often we make the stress level much worse than necessary due to our perceptions of the world outside. This questionnaire will help you find out what it is you may be doing wrong in this particular area.

Please read carefully the statements below and mark on the scale how much you identify with each.

1. If I make a mistake it is likely people would think the worse of me.
2. It does not make sense going overboard to reach one’s goal.
3. Whatever one does, it should be done well.
4. People just must be offended by criticism.
5. It is always necessary to try and find the best solution.
6. Others know they will have to remind me of what they told me to do so that I really do it.
