Quiz On Self-Protection

(Author Unknown)


Am I Protecting Myself?

Indicate which of the statements in each section below is appropriate to you.

If you score all "A's", then you are giving yourself the very best self-protection against the effects of stress.

The more "B's" you score, the lower is your level of self-protection, and the more open you are to increased stress levels, and the harder it'll be for you to deal with any stresses you experience.

If you score all "B's", you may need to look at your lifestyle and consider making changes because you are not self-protecting yourself against stress and dealing with any stresses mayl be very difficult.

Remember: This quiz is just a guide, and is in no way a scientific or foolproof method of diagnosing stress - it is no more than an indicator of what could be happening.
