The MTQ48 is an assessment that measures mental toughness – or resilience and how we think on a scale from 1-10 in 4 key areas:

1) Control – Having a sense of self worth and being in control of their life, circumstances and emotions.

2) Commitment – Goal orientation; setting and achieving of goals as well as resilience in the face of adversity.

3) Challenge – The extent to which boundaries are pushed, change is embraced, and risks are taken. It is also about how they learn from experiences – good and bad, and seeing challenges as opportunities.

4) Confidence – Describes the self-belief in their own abilities and interpersonal confidence to influence others and deal with conflict.


Mental Toughness is a quality which determines, in some part, how individuals perform when exposed to stressors, pressure and challenge.
