The Dispositional Resilience (Hardiness) Scale (HARDY) is a self-report scale that is designed to measure three major components of hardiness (control, communication, and challenge). The HARDY consists of 45 items that are rated on a four-point Likert scale from 0 (not at all true) to 3 (completely true).
The HARDY consists of 45 items that are rated on a four-point Likert scale as follows:
|Not at all true||A little true||Quite true||Completely true|
The HARDY yields three subscales (communication, challenge, and control). Descriptions of the subscales and item loadings are listed below. Scale scores are calculated as the sum of respective items. Bold items are reverse scored.
|SCALE NAME (ABBR.)||DESCRIPTION||ITEM LOADINGS|
|HARDY_Comm||Communication Scale||1, 7, 8, 9, 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, 31, 37, 39, 41, 44, 45|
|HARDY_Chal||Challenge Scale||5, 6, 12, 15, 16, 20, 21, 27, 30, 32, 33, 35, 36, 38, 40|
