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. To be happy I need to be recognized by other people.
2. If I make a mistake it is likely people would think the worse of me.
3. If things are not following my expectations, I quickly become impatient.
4. Others know they will have to remind me of what they told me to do so that I really do it.
5. I cannot stand making a mistake.
6. One should have a reasonable prospect for success well before embarking on a project.
7. If what I am doing does not yield results fast, I will give up on it.
8. The way I see myself depends to a large degree on what others think about me.
9. It does not make sense going overboard to reach one’s goal.
10. Whatever one does, it should be done well.
11. I cannot reach meaningful goals without toiling away like a slave.
12. It is all but impossible to find the time for planning.
13. I want to have control of what is going on around me.

15. Often I ask myself what others would say about what I do.
16. It is always necessary to try and find the best solution.
17. I have to be a useful, creative, productive person, or there is no sense to my life.
18. What others think about me is ultimately more important than what I think about myself.
19. I should be able to solve my problems fast and easy.
20. I cannot be happy myself without making others happy.
