    Default SP's under stress

    SP's under stress?
    Talk about how you deal with it.
    (or avoid it completely)

    (non SP's can contribute if you have examples about somebody you know.)

    Put me under enough stress and I do as the theory goes turn into an unhealthy ENTJ. The usual easy going nature gives way to a demanding push it through at any cost kind of attitude I'm embarrassed to say.

    I can deal with lower levels of stress better than most others but when I snap, I snap.

    Depends on why I'm stressed. Sometimes I need to talk to someone, sometimes I need to do something active, sometimes I need to be alone. Most of the time, writing helps to get something logical out of me. I just write it all down to myself and act like I'm my own therapist.
    Or, I paint some schizophrenic stuff. That helps too. In really extreme situations, hitting some pillows helps.

    Face turns red, my heart starts beating faster, I scowl, I sometimes throw things or yell, hopefully not too loudly if the boss is in the office.

    I'm better than I used to be since I started taking medication for blood pressure and heart rate. I guess I "deal with it" by just moving on, continuing to work, i guess sometimes i take a deep breath...hopefully i havent done or said anything too childish or hurtful that I have to apologize for, but sometimes I have.

    hmm I don't really know..I can't really say I have alot of stresses in life...mainly because I believe most things will work themselves out..or i'll make something happen in the moment and it will turn out the way I want it to..and if not learn something from the situation and move on.

    I remember I was younger I used to have emotional outbursts like screaming slamming doors you know the usual..those rarely happen now and if they do I deal with things in private

    I really take a very laid-back attitude to life, so me being "stressed" is rare. If I am though, here tends to be my typical reactions:

    -If it's causing frustration/anger, my veins in my neck and arms become very visible, and I tend to tense up. In talking with others, I may become even more sarcastic and blunt than usual....

    -If possible, I try to get away from whatever's causing it for a while, and figure out how to fix the problem/"escape" for a bit.

    everything stops, I lose all motivation to do anything and I withdraw from company. I get to the point where I have so much swimming round in my head that I can't see where to start.

    I need to identify the root cause of the strees before I can move on. Usually talking to my SO helps with this - as an INTP he has an amazing knack for picking out the main problem. Once I've done that I have to relax enough to stop my head from spinning so i can work out where I'm going to start sorting myself out.

    This sounds like my youngest brother.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.
