Should I rely on the Experiential Acceptance or Non-reactivity Scale to understand my results?

The studies from Dr Alice Shires, Dr Bruno Cayoun, and others in the MiCBT research team suggest that equanimity is a combination of acceptance of our current experience and non-reactivity. Therefore, the most accurate measure of equanimity is the total score.

However, it can also be helpful to look at the percentile score, as it allows you to compare your score with that of the general population in Australia. Generally, people without mental health conditions score around the 50th percentile, which corresponds to a total score of approximately 59 out of 80.

The graph displays the percentile score for each measurement. High scores indicate high levels of self-reported equanimity.
