Description: Resilience research aims at finding traits or predispositions that protect from developing mental disorders despite exposure to stress or adversity. One psychosocial factor that is frequently linked to resilience is psychological flexibility. So far, only one study has focused on the association of cognitive and affective flexibility and resilience. The current study aims at replicating and extending these findings. For this purpose, resilience and flexibility will be examined in a sample of 100 healthy subjects. To measure resilience, three self-report questionnaires will be applied: two that define resilience as a personality trait and one that focuses on resilience as an outcome in the sense of stress coping abilities. Cognitive and affective flexibility will be assessed as switch costs (increases in response times and error rates when switching between two tasks) in two experimental paradigms.
