The SRQ consists of 63 items which are answered on a 5-point Likert scale (1= strongly disagree, 5=strongly agree). The SRQ evaluates subjects’ self-regulation of behavior, understood as the ability to plan and manage their own behavior in a flexible way, according to the desired outcomes. It has7 scales: (1) informational input, which refers to the ability of a person to obtain information from their environment on their current state; (2) self-evaluation, for which the information is used in comparison with personal goals, rules and expectations; (3) instigation to change, wherein the person perceives whether or not there are discrepancies between their current state and their desired state; (4) search for alternatives, with the aim of reducing discrepancies; (5) planning for change, referring to the strategies or actions for carrying out the process of change; (6) implementation of strategies for change; and (7) goal attainment evaluation plan.
