FIND OUT HOW WELL YOU HANDLE YOUR FEELINGS BY DOING THIS ERQ

Did you know there are right and wrong ways to feel and express your emotions?

Find out how well you handle your feelings by taking the ERQ.

ERQ – Emotion Regulation Questionnaire

The Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (ERQ) by the University of Central Florida is a 10-item self-report scale designed to assess habitual use of two commonly used strategies to alter emotion:

1.Cognitive Reappraisal – It is a way of reframing a situation to change its emotional impact.

For example, thinking of a speech as an exciting opportunity to share your ideas rather than a scary moment where everyone will be judging your performance.

2. Expressive Suppression – It happens once you’ve already felt the feeling.

For example, someone going to the bar after a breakup to distract themselves from the negative feelings of heartbreak.

ERQ Instructions

It should only take about 10 minutes, and when you’re done, it’ll give you two scores.

One is for your emotional reappraisal, which is on a scale of 0–7, with higher numbers indicating a healthier approach.

The other score is for your emotional suppression, which is also on a scale of 0–7. Because emotional suppression is considered less healthy, lower scores are better on this metric.

Suppressing your emotions will just make them come out in less healthy ways.

So,

Try taking a step back from a situation you know will trigger some strong emotions, and see what you can do to reframe it as a positive.

It could make you a happier person.
