Text Box:  A response of 4 represents a high ranking .  The maximum score is 14 x 4 = 56 and the minimum 14 x 1 = 14. The top of the scale suggests a person with energy and excitement for life, curious, secure, with ability to recover quickly from life’s stresses and one who is likable and likes others. 

The Ego Resilience 89 scale attempts to measure the quality of resilience by assessing the way each person manages the fluctuations in daily life and what they do about their own experiences. While those scoring higher in the scale are not necessarily free of emotional distress and impairment, emotional problems would be expected to be much more prevalent among those ranked lower.
