Personalities Under Stress
Situations that are stressful to one person may be exciting or motivating to another. How we react to and handle the stressors in our lives depends upon a lot of things; workload, time constraints, the people we interact with, our past experiences… and there is something more- our personality. There are inherent connections between stress and personality styles. Once we gain an awareness of these connections, we can use the insights to put our personality strengths to work for us (instead of against us) to improve our stress levels.
