Today, in my psychology class, we were given a sheet that had a list of stressful events and we were to select the ones we had experienced in the last 12 months. I got highest in my class of above an 80% chance of getting a life threatening illness due to stress. Everyone laughed. FML

  • Do you know how curious I am now? As I too am from Coventry and did this experiment in my psychology class today. I wonder if it was the same class...? Interesting. But if it was the same class, you'll know that one of the main flaws if this experiment is that it fails to take individual differences into account. Plus, it ignores the good things in people's lives, that help to counter balance stress. So really, you don't need to worry about it at all!
