According to Letzring, Block and Funder (2004) ego resiliency (ER) refers to the dynamic capacity to contextually modify one's level of ego-control in response to situational affordances. In our pilot study we established the Hungarian version of Leztring's 15 item-self report Ego resiliency scale. In a confirmatory factor analytic procedure we calculated the goodness of fit measures and reliability scores of Ego resiliency scale. We used the original one factor scale structure for the analysis. The statistics are based on a sample of 300 subjects. The various fit measures indicate a valid and reliable Ego resiliency scale for Hungarian studies in the field of health and sport psychology.
