The article analyzes the results of the study of the hardiness and its relationships with the personal resources. Personal resources, as intrapersonal qualities of a person, contribute to smoothing out contradictions between the individual and the living environment, overcoming adverse external circumstances with the help of the transformation of the value-meaning sphere of the individual, which sets the vector of its direction, the basis for self-realization. A separate role is given to the resources of psychological stability, which are the result of certain dynamics of the life situation and factors affecting the further success and efficiency of life activities. Such a resource of psychological stability as hardiness provides adaptation to external circumstances, the ability to cope with stress and life’s troubles. We used The Wiesbaden Questionnaire of the Positive Psychotherapy and Family Psychotherapy Method (WIPPF) and the Maddi Test of Hardiness to determine the psychological factors of resilience. The empirical study was conducted during 2020-2022. 1,075 people of different education levels, professional employment, professions, family and social statuses, income levels and from different cities and villages of Ukraine took part in the study. We used the Pearson correlation coefficient to measure the statistical relationship between hardiness and personal abilities. The personal resources include primary and secondary abilities, which were determined using the Wiesbaden questionnaire. As a result of our research, we found that personal resources are a powerful resource for the development of a person’s level of hardiness. However, not all people are ready and able to cope with difficulties. The reason for this may be a lack of experience in overcoming life’s difficulties or a lack of personal resources. In our opinion, the main reason that enables a person to survive difficult life situations is a personal resource. It has been established that personal resources play a significant role in the formation and development of hardiness. The most pronounced relationships of hardiness were found with almost all primary relevant abilities. It was found that love has the greatest influence on predicting the hardiness indicator. It was determined that the factors that have a positive effect on hardiness are primary and secondary abilities: hope, trust and contacts. Further research will be aimed at studying the components of the internal resources of the individual to expand the limits of practical influence on development and increase the level of hardiness in wartime conditions.
