Determine Your Style of Coping

Styles of Coping Word-Pairs

Read each word-pair in each row and place a check-mark next to the word that best describes you. Make sure you pick only ONE word or phrase in each row. If you are unsure which word best describes you, imagine what your friends or family members might say about you. If neither of the words describe you—pick the one that is the closest to how you would describe yourself. Make sure you pick one word from each row.


If you answer mostly A's, then you are more undercontrolled. If you answer mostly B's, then you are more overcontrolled.
