    Hmm, the Withdrawn coping strategy is supposed to be the rarest, but that vote is at 69% of 32 votes so far.

    Think some Compliants and Aggressives are fooling themselves or is this to be expected from the respondents to such a poll on such an internet forum?

    Withdrawn/aggressive. It was the only way I knew how to act as a child, and it's how I still act under stress. When I became depressed, I just withdrew from the situation, lest anyone see me as a flawed individual. When I suffered from panic attacks or was cornered and unable to withdraw, I lashed out at everyone around me in a very aggressive manner.

    Oh, and how this has affected my relationships? Well, I recall getting invited out to a certain bar, comparing myself to other people, becoming self-critical and depressed, and then just leaving with little or no warning to my friends who invited me out. In another instance, namely my high school graduation, I had a panic attack and became aggressive toward my family and girlfriend at the time.. we broke up shortly after.

    So, yeah.. major problems that I needed to solve.

    Well, I think that you could expect that. Here are majorly Ns, Maybe Is as well, so this cannot be considered a general sample methinks

    I think I use all three of them.

    I can't figure out which I use most...

    Compliant/Aggressive, maybe? I figure I'm either that or Withdrawn/Compliant. I just can't seem to pick two. I'm far too aware of having used all of them. I don't have enough of a sense of proportion or instinct to say which I use more often, or more naturally. It sort of feels like I end up using whatever I think will work best.
