I think when it's a personal crisis (i.e. I failed my class and will have to be in school yet *another* semester) I don't handle it well at all and can become very emotional, even hysterical. But, if it's an external crisis, (ie. fire, lost in a bad part of chicago, car accident, snakes on the hiking trail) then I'm calm as a cucumber and usually dominant and in control. then, afterwords, when the crisis is totally over, I freak out.
