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.

  11. paul says:

    haven’t seen any dif­fer­ence between the both dol­phins. They are the same. So, I am relaxed :)) :))

  12. anon says:

    I thought the mes­sage from this would be that we actu­al­ly are stressed after being told see­ing dif­fer­ences is abnor­mal, then see­ing a dif­fer­ence.

  13. Venkat says:

    Hel­lo unkown, Car­o­line is tak­ing some days off but will trans­mit the feeling…I under­stand how it may have sur­prised you at first, but am hap­py to see it even­tu­al­ly helped you release a bit of ten­sion.

    Thank you for stop­ping by

  18. I loved it. I used to work on a dairy farm and every­one loves dol­phins. A won­der­ful pic­ture and I had to laugh.

  19. yahobahne says:

  20. malyn says: almost freak me out..*joke* nice one!

  21. Raoul says:

    I must have zero stress because I saw no dif­fer­ence in the two dol­phins. (g)

  22. Alvaro says:

    Raoul, that’s strange. You didn’t see 2 cows 🙂

  23. whisky says:

    I think I need to post a link to that in my jour­nal. All of human­i­ty should take that test.

  24. Alvaro says:

    And not just human­i­ty. What would a third dol­phin see in that pic­ture…
