Stress & Test-Taking Study Links Success to Attitude AND Genetics

Posted by on Feb 6, 2013 in BLOG: The Life Hypnotic, News | 0 comments

An interesting article in the New York Times online, February 6, 2013, focuses on research into why some people thrive on stress and competition and others do not:

“Stress turns out to be far more complicated than we’ve assumed, and far more under our control than we imagine. Unlike long-term stress, short-term stress can actually help people perform, and viewing it that way changes its effect. Even for those genetically predisposed to anxiety, the antidote isn’t necessarily less competition — it’s more competition. It just needs to be the right kind.”

While there may be a genetic component to the way individuals handle stress, studies are beginning to prove what hypnotists have known for a long time: re-framing, that is, changing the way we interpret a situation, can actually change the outcome.
