MONTREAL, CANADA -- (INTERNET WIRE) -- 03/30/2001

The web’s #1 Psychology and Mental Health site, queendom.com, has once again launched a powerful tool for self-insight and personal growth – The Hardiness Test. Just in time for the grand finale of Survivor II, you can find out if you have what it takes to make it through hard times!


Do You Endure…or Crumble?

Why do some people bounce back from seemingly insurmountable hardship, while others throw in the towel at the slightest sign of trouble? There is no simple answer to that question; the ability to recover from life’s trials and tribulations – to “survive” – rests on a combination of coping skills and strategies. The professionally designed Resilience Test, which uses situational questions that anyone can relate to, evaluates how well you are able to pull through when the going gets tough. Along with an informative introduction, each test taker gets an analysis of their score and suggestions on how to build resilience.

What exactly is resilience? Trina St. Jean, creator of the test, says, “Resilience is not as cut and dry as it may seem. It is a combination of several different attitudes and coping strategies that we acquire through experiences and role models. And it’s certainly not an either-you-have-it-or-you-don’t type deal - many people survive horrible ordeals like war or extreme poverty, only to crumble to pieces from a smaller blow like losing a job. Our ability to bounce back varies throughout our lifetime, which is actually good news; it means we are all capable of developing stronger coping skills simply through conscious effort. This test was designed to point you in the right direction.”
