The 7-Factor 20-Item Multi-Rs Resilience Scale (Measured by a 5-Point Likert Scale from “Strongly Disagree” to “Strongly Agree”)


Item description


When doing group work, I am always ready to change my opinion to accommodate others.

I always follow instructions at school whether they make sense in the moment or not.


When I have something I don't understand in my study, I just ignore it.

If the teacher ignores me, I will ignore the teacher back.


Each time I fail, I keep trying and never give up.

I am really determined when I go through a hard time.

When I am not happy with my marks or grades, I always work as hard as I can to achieve my best.

For school things I am not good at, I revise continuously and never give up.


When there are things that are not nice, I just brush them off.

When people annoy me, I just ignore them and never react badly in a way they expect.

When I see unfriendly people, I just move away because it's a waste of time and worthless to argue with them.

When things go wrong, I just take a break from them and do something else.


When things go wrong, I first calm down and try to deal with them later.

When troubles come, I always think the positive side, and then get down to sort them out.


Each time I fail, I learn off my mistakes.

Each time I screw up something, I always reflect on what I could have done it differently.


I always think about the consequences when I nearly react badly to something.

Whenever I see others in trouble, I always think what I would do if I were in that situation.

Helping others is also to help with my problems because it may help me to figure out something.

When there is a hard decision, I take time to consider both sides of the matter.
