Stress Management Test

Here’s a quick test to deter­mine your stress lev­el.  Read the fol­low­ing descrip­tion com­plete­ly before look­ing at the pic­ture.

The pic­ture below was used in a case study on stress lev­els at St. Mary’s Hos­pi­tal. Look at both dol­phins jump­ing out of the water. The dol­phins are iden­ti­cal. A close­ly mon­i­tored, sci­en­tif­ic study revealed that, in spite of the fact that the dol­phins are iden­ti­cal, a per­son under stress would find dif­fer­ences between the two dol­phins. The more dif­fer­ences a per­son finds between the dol­phins, the more stress that per­son is expe­ri­enc­ing.

Look at the pho­to­graph, and if you find more than one or two dif­fer­ences, you may want to take a vaca­tion or at least get a mas­sage.

How did you do? Do you need a vaca­tion?! Appar­ent­ly I do!

  10. tom says:

    Lol. The appre­hen­sion and anx­i­ety of see­ing many dif­fer­ences were soon drowned by the release of endor­phins cre­at­ed by my laugh­ter.

  11. Alvaro says:

    Also, one dol­phin is to the Left, anoth­er one to the Right. Very clear dif­fer­ence, that no one has noticed so far…
