Acute Stress

Acute stress affects people differently – All stress is a mix of environment and perception. As a result, people are able to shrug off some threats and close encounters easily, whereas other threats are harder and may have a greater negative effect.

Dr. Mike Dadson observes:

4 Factors that play a role in your ability to tolerate stress include but are not limited to:

  • Frequency
  • Personal history
  • Current situation
  • The response of others and the reactions of the individual
