This study examined the stability of the Bidimensional Resilience Scale (BRS) and its relationship with life events. The BRS was administered twice to 57 university students at an interval of about three months. Each subscale showed a strong positive correlation between Time 1 and Time 2, but the subscales were poorly correlated with life events. Thus the temporal stability of the subscales was confirmed. The analysis of the subscale scores showed that people with high “sociability” (an innate factor) tended to have experienced more positive life events, and people who had experienced more life events tended to have higher scores on “self-understanding” (an acquired factor).
