First, answer any instrument honestly. You want to have a baseline that is accurate so that you may change if you want. Do not answer according to how you believe it should be answered. Answer according to how you are right now.The Positive Affect/Negative Affect Scale (PANAS) measures the amount of each affect a person has. An affect is a set of moods, dispositions and emotions that predict a positive or negative outlook. We all have both affects. You will receive two scores – one for positive and the other for negative affect. Each is scored between 0 and 50. The higher the score, the higher the affect. If your score is weighted more heavily on positive than it is in negative you will have a more generally positive outlook, and vice versa. There are those with a higher score in negative affect than positive affect. This is not an issue unless the negative affect is accompanied with depression. If that is the case, please have a discussion with the appropriate health professional.There is an estimated 40% chance you may change your affect if you wish. Sonya Lyubomirsky’s The How of Happiness  is a researched set of tools that have been shown to adjust one’s “set range” of affect. The idea in the book is to pick a tool or two that works for you and to which you can remain consistent. Be patient. It takes time to adjust something you have been with for years.The Grit Scale Measures a person’s overall perseverance and ability to stick to a long term plan. It is scored between 1 and 5. The closer to 5, the higher your grit. Please read my blog about grit after you have taken the scale.
