Measures the level and causes of an individual’s experience of stress. The special stress inventory, DSI, yields a differentiated assessment of stress triggers, stress manifestations, available coping strategies and risks of stress stabilization. Coping successfully with stressful situations and everyday stressors is crucial to personal wellbeing and for success and productivity at work. The DSI is therefore useful in the fields of personnel development (staff & management assessments) and career guidance. The level of subjectively experienced stress can be related to a number of psychosomatic disorders (e.g. burnout, migraine). This questionnaire is therefore also used in clinical neuropsychology. Forms S3 and S4 (DSIHR) are particularly suitable for use in the assessment of fitness to use weapons and in HR.
