According to the level of resistance (opposition) to stressogenic caseloads among types in socion we can mark four categories of resistance to stress. These groups are formed by means of Jung's pair of features as "rationality - irrationality" and a non Jungian pair "right winged - left winged"
A high resistance to disadvantageous external influences is assisted by sociotype's reliance, first - irrational, and secondly - left directed types.
Irrationality provides human nervous system with flexibility and therefore these types can easily escape from stressful conditions, switching their minds to other thoughts or activities. As for the "Left" types, this class of social progress naturally forecasts sudden changes of its own temper and directions and it also implies a greater willingness of these types of stressful factors.
Stress resistance groups will be presented in the following chart:
LEFT WINGED.........stopped by stress..........stress resistant
RIGHT WINGED.......unresistant to stress......trained by stress
1. Left winged irrationals (SLE, SLI, IEI, IEE) are the most stress-resistant types. Their advantage is that they are good at dealing with things under extreme conditions. They are mobilized by unexpected changes in situations, it gives them a new drive. Ability to work effectively during stress, adds to the characteristics of their temperament a new trait - elasticity.
2. Right winged irrationals (SEE, SEI, ILI, ILE) belong to the group of types that are trained by stress. It is characterized by gradual adaptation to stressful conditions. Each of the four types serves at their "roasting" school and each time they overcome stress their degree of stress resistance increase. An additional component to the temperament of these types - ductility.
3. Left winged rationals (ESE, ESI, LII, LIE) are among group of types that are stopped by stress. These types are able to resist stress for quite some time but with each new wave of stress their strength runs out and they change their tactics of resistance to withdrawal. Experiencing consequences inside of them they seem like growing some sort of cascade . An additional element to their rational temperament - crystallinity.
4. Right winged rationals (LSE, LSI, EII, EIE) creates a stress unresistant group of types. They bear stress worse than the other types, especially the stress which is unexpected in nature. Despite their external stoicism, they always have poorly protected and vulnerable point and also - a need to have a solid foundation under their feet and if this foundation is moved they lose any resistance to stress they may had. Stress threatens these types with challenging doubts and in the end leads them into inner breaking ("giants with feet of clay"). To their rational temperaments unavoidable element is monolithicism.
