Everyone sometimes finds themselves in challenging situations - some challenges come out of left field, while others can be seen coming from a mile away. Even positive life changes, such as getting married, starting a family, or starting a new job, can be stressful.
The challenge itself, but also how you deal with the extreme stress it may cause, can have a significant impact on your life. There are no purely “good” or “bad” strategies -all have advantages and drawbacks.
It’s common for people to use a variety of different coping techniques, but in times of great stress, individuals typically have one particular strategy that comes naturally to them. Our coping styles test will help identify your go-to method for dealing with challenges.
When you’re going through a difficult time, you reach out for support from others.
