Resilience Quiz

Take the “Bounce-back-ability” quiz or “The Child and Youth Resilience Measure (CYRM)” and see how you rate yourself. Don’t worry if the score low. The good news is that we can easily improve with some awareness and a little work.

0-8 A developing level of resilience.

Your score indicates that although you may not always feel at the mercy of events,  you would in fact benefit significantly from developing aspects of your behaviour.

9- 17 An established level of resilience.

Your score indicates that you may occasionally have tough days when you can’t quite make things go your way, but you rarely feel ready to give up.

18-27 A strong level of resilience.

Your above average score indicates that you are pretty good at rolling with the punches and you have an impressive track record of turning setbacks into opportunities.

28-36 An exceptional level of resilience.

Your score indicates that you are very resilient most of the time and rarely fail to bounce back – whatever life throws at you. You believe in making your own luck.
