    Along the 'fuck it' line of thought and music, I usually go with "Flowers are Pretty."

    It's gotten me through having my position eliminated and being reassigned, an ovarian tumor, and serving as treasurer on a Political Action Committee with a campaign manager who almost drove me insane.

    What can I say? It's been an interesting year.
    ------------------
    Children are lovely before they get ugly, and learn to do bad stuff.
    Flowers are pretty before they get shitty, and rot and turn to dust
    I heard that life is a wheel and you can't make it stop
    If you try it'll flatten your head
    It's a circle of shit we're in the middle of it
    but soon we'll all be dead

    Like everybody else that ever lived before, the things you make fall to the floor
    and nobody knows how hard you tried, it's been that way since the start of time-
    There was a caveman that did some amazing things
    but nobody here gives a f**k
    And in a thousand years they'll feel the same
    towards all the things you've done

    CHORUS:
    So don't worry what might give you cancer-
    or stay up nights just wanting answers
    Its just a crap shoot, but it's mostly crap
    things start off they're so terrific
    they'll f**k up it's scientific
    Entropy, uncertainty won't yield to you

    Love at first sight on a beautiful night and a feeling so divine
    gets sucked down the toilet 'cause something will spoil it
    with the good times left behind you
    Don't try to figure out who's at fault
    powerful forces abound
    like a twig on a river in the universe
    tomorrow you'll probably drown

    CHORUS:
    So don't worry if it is a tumor -
    all this will be over sooner
    Its just a crap shoot, but it's mostly crap
    things start off they're so terrific
    they'll f**k up it's scientific
    Entropy, uncertainty won't yield to you or you

    And all the things that matter most
    disappear, here's a toast
    to erosion and corrosion, Altimzers and pain

    Don't try to figure out who's at fault
    there's powerful forces at play
    and if you lose your legs and have to beg
    it's really all the same

    Oh, good Thread!

    Personally, when I get stressed, I tend to be uh.."aggressive" pretty easy. Best is to let me do my Work then, since it *looks* like I would run a Marathon or so (just had that Today again *lol*).
    But once I have worked tru, I come down really fast again and Everything is fine.
    Rule #1: Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cakehole.

    Again, Demons I get, but people are just crazy.

    ESTP? o.O

    Thanks a lot. I took your advice and now I'm clinically depressed.

    This is my first post here, so hello everybody Am quite new to Myers-Briggs theory in general, but as I'm apparently an ENTJ, I'll just give you my two cents worth anyways

    When I'm stressed, I try good old escapism - taking some time out, such as a long walk or a good book or a few glasses of wine with friends. However, even while I'm 'escaping', whatever is troubling me will still be bubbling away under the surface. This might not sound very effective, but it actually is, as I usually come up with solutions to my problems while trying to distance myself from them.

    This might not make sense on a superficial level, but I suppose the process behind it is that by doing some displacement activity, I'm giving myself time and space (even without meaning to) to think through my troubles dispassionately and logically. So, if you're anything like me, escapism may not be as relaxing as it sounds, but it can be a way of ensuring distance from emotions. It is when emotion gets muddled in with reason (which really isn't often for me) that I get stressed, so I need a process with which to prise them apart.

    Vigorous excercise works best for me.Windsprints more often than not will do the trick. If you are not the pyhsical type try getting lost in a good documentary or movie.

    I bottle it up inside and save it all for my huge mid-life psychotic breakdown when I end up with more fries than ketchup at Burger King one afternoon.
    I know a girl, she's one of a kind
    But the poor little thing, she's going out of her mind
    There's something you forgot - there's a reason why she's lost
    Cos baby she don't want to be found

    Drugs.

    Kidding.

    Stress. I guess its one of those things that I kind of strive to avoid at all costs. I've always been able to take things light heartedly so humor and evasiveness have been a go to combo for me for a while.

    It's not healthy but I would say once I reach the tipping point a good ole argument or a little loud music will do the trick. I sort of get a little incapacitated by it sometimes and thats usually when I just go on the internet and idle about reading a couple of things here and there until I find something that gets my interests perked up a bit. I have a short cycle for things though and can't sustain any deep emotion for long, blessing and a curse I guess.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    I have a few techniques. First, I open my jaw as wide as I can and stretch the muscles that go up to my temple. Second, because I can't afford to get regular massages, I put Deep and Cold on the back of my shoulders, neck, and lower scalp. This helps relax those muscles and is very cheap and requires minimal effort. Third, I watch movies or listen to online interviews to take my mind off things. Fourth, I move around. If I am sitting in isolation for too long doing a task and starting to drift off or getting ansy I get up and walk around and then go back with a renewed sense of focus.

    I think there's a few important issues when it comes to stress. One is that often a short-term relief from stress can result in increased stress once the activity is over. For example, going out when you have a big project, meeting, assignment, interview, etc. You gain in the short-run but screwed yourself in the long-run. If the stress is temporary than perhaps you have to do what you have to do. But if it's an on-going thing, then one should get at the root of the problem - the source of stress.

    Working out
    Getting drunk
    Having sex

    Exercise is good because you have an outlet.
