Mental Toughness
The Mental Toughness dimension refers to both physical and mental toughness. It is a measurement of an individual's vigor or capacity for endurance. A score in this dimension is a function of environmental influence and reflects a tender-minded or tough-minded individual.
Scores 1 to 3
Low scorers, stanine levels 1-3, are sensitive to their own needs and feelings as well as those of others.  They have a greater capacity for empathy and are gentle when dealing with people. Sales rejections and criticisms are usually taken more seriously and personally than they were generally intended. Tender-minded people get their feelings hurt more easily and are slower to heal when they do. At the extreme, they may be too dependent upon the opinions of others with respect to their own values. Many times, these people are more easily depressed and live in a pattern of "peaks and valleys." Persons low in this dimension dislike rough people or rough activity, uncleanness and are more attuned to physical discomforts. Tender-minded individuals are usually more imaginative, aesthetically oriented and are more appreciative of beauty.
Scores 4 to 6
Average scorers, stanine levels 4-6, generally withstand the blows and abrasions of life acceptably, yet still have the sensitivity to be concerned about other people and their feelings. They have the ability to recognize and enjoy color, form, art and other aesthetic values as well as reasonably adjust to criticism and training. In most situations, a stanine score of 4-6 is highly desirable. It reflects an individual who has sufficient empathy, sensitivity and aesthetic orientation, yet, at the same time, is not too easily depressed or too sensitive for most employment situations.
Scores 7 to 9
High scorers, stanine levels 7-9, are basically tough-minded people who are oblivious to physical discomforts and criticism. They are self-reliant individuals who have a good deal of resiliency and bounce back quickly from any misfortune or setback. They see themselves as having good self-discipline and control. In interpersonal relationships, they exhibit little sympathy or empathy, yet, they avidly give advice and see most situations as black or white. Those who score in the extremely high range may be insensitive.
