Brain Test - Emotional Resilience - Quiz

The following ten questions are designed to help you better understand your Emotional Resilience. As you read each question think about past experiences and be honest about your emotional responses. It is also best to answer with the first thought that comes to mind rather than think too much about whether a question is true or false about you. Good luck and enjoy exploring how your brain is wired.

(This test is based on the Emotional Styles research by Professor Richard Davidson author of (The Emotional Life of Your Brain)
