Field of Application+

Detailed Description+

Assesses various aspects of resilience.
This objective personality test is particularly suitable for use in personnel psychology (staff & management assessments, manufacturing & safety assessments, academic testing) and sports psychology. In these fields it is often necessary to apply coping strategies to deal with particular stressors.

Test forms+

One test form.


Six subtests are available. They measure resilience under various conditions:

  • “Time pressure” measures resilience when time is short. A coding task must be completed within a time that becomes shorter and shorter.
  • “Presence of others” measures resilience in a situation in which one is being observed. This involves performing computational tasks while stylized people make disparaging comments.
  • “Conflict of tasks” measures resilience in situations in which a number of requirements are imposed simultaneously. While the respondent is working on a task, he/she is repeatedly distracted by other urgent activities.
  • “Hindrance to planned action” assesses resilience in situations in which disruptions suddenly occur. The respondent must find the path to the goal through a constantly changing labyrinth.
  • “Inadequate feedback” assesses resilience in socially contradictory situations. The respondent receives inadequate feedback from a committee in a simulated application situation.
  • “Unfavorable working conditions” assesses resilience under difficult external conditions in a simulated office situation.

Controlled Mode


The following main variables are scored, depending on the subtest:

  • Time pressure
    • Performance optimization: Assesses the improvement in performance under time pressure.
    • Performance stability: Influence of time pressure on performance level.
  • Presence of others
    • Quality: Computational performance when being watched by others.
    • Speed difference: Measure of the change in working speed in computational tasks.
  • Conflict of tasks
    • Quantity - main task: Indicates how much of the required activity was completed.
    • Efficiency of the secondary task: Measure of the efficiency of coping strategies in the face of interruptions.
  • Hindrance to planned action
    • Quantity: Extent to which the target was achieved (0-100%).
    • Speed: Efficiency of strategies for achieving the target quickly.
  • Inadequate feedback
    • Behavioral stability: Influence of feedback on behavior.
    • Constancy of feedback inspection time: Measure of the individual’s uncertainty.
  • Unfavorable working conditions
    • Work quality: Extent of correct working.
    • Work quantity: Measure of persistence and frustration tolerance.
    • Processing: Percentage of items worked (0-100%).

Various subsidiary variables provide more detailed information on strengths and weaknesses.
