The RS-6 measures the degree of individual resilience in adults. It consists of 9 items that are rated on a seven-point Likert type format ranging from 1 (Strongly Disagree) to 7 (Strongly Agree).
The RS-6 showed a strong correlation with the RS-13 (r=.96; p<.01), as well as a strong
corrected correlation (r=.90) with this version. Accordingly, the correlations it presented with
the other instruments were as expected, demonstrating convergent validity.
