Unconscious Stress Factors and Resilience
This short questionnaire can be taken anytime and especially if the background score from your Wellbeing index TM questionnaire falls below recommended limits.

Leon Festinger (8 May 1919 to 11 February 1989) suggested that people who hold two or more competing ideas/values (cognitions) that are psychologically inconsistent, experience a state of psychological discomfort called Cognitive Dissonance.

While a person may be occasionaly aware of the conflict, the stress may continue unconsciously, even while asleep. This can cause distraction and a loss of: energy, focus and decisiveness.
Email *
Dissonance is sometimes described as the uneasy feeling that something needs attention.
This form is designed to show some of the possible sources of that feeling and to give you a purely subjective idea of the amount of pressure you may be feeling as a result.

How to score: Answering these kinds of questions is subjective, just score how you feel; there are no right or wrong answers.
