How does adversity affect you? Do you have solid coping skills? How quickly do you bounce back after something upsets, angers or disappoints you? Are you easily hurt? Do you have trouble letting things go? Do you stew and obsess?

I did that the other day on a dare from my daughter-in-law; she’d just taken a test in the latest edition of Newsweek and found out she is not resilient.
