Abstract

The current paper presents a new measure of trait resilience derived from three common
mechanisms identified in ecological theory: Engineering, Ecological and Adaptive (EEA)
resilience. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses of five existing resilience scales
suggest that the three trait resilience facets emerge, and can be reduced to a 12-item scale.
The conceptualization and value of EEA resilience within the wider trait and well-being psychology
is illustrated in terms of differing relationships with adaptive expressions of the traits
of the five-factor personality model and the contribution to well-being after controlling for
personality and coping, or over time. The current findings suggest that EEA resilience is a
useful and parsimonious model and measure of trait resilience that can readily be placed
within wider trait psychology and that is found to contribute to individual well-being
