    Default Panic and Stress

    I believe that Betas and Gammas panic in a crisis. However, Alphas and Deltas don't.

    However, with regards to day to day pressure and stress, Betas and Gammas are able to cope - but Alphas and Deltas get stressed out.

    What do you think?

    I'm usually comfortable with both situations, I can panic with a disaster if I have no protection against it, then again I don't think most ENTp's will answer the same way I do anyway.!

    I usually go into full mode when under deadline or an emergency. I dont panic. Ive read this is common for ENFJs. In times of death Ive always been the calm one.

    Read this ENFJs crisis:

    http://www.enneagraminstitute.com/fo...?TOPIC_ID=8241

    She was quite calm for parent. ENFJs are remarkably skilled at repression (in which they face later).

    and from Team Technology:

    "As stress increases, 'learned behaviour' tends to give way to the natural style, so the ENFJ will behave more according to type when under greater stress. For example, in a crisis, the ENFJ might:

    get everyone organised
    express appreciation for their efforts
    contribute creative ideas, but overlook current realities
    fail to consider the cost implications "

    For me it seems that feeling gets repressed and automation goes into action until everything is over. And usually a migraine follows the day after. I can always count on that oh so fun migraine.

    Yeah, it works alright for me. However, I saw an ESFj (Alpha) that I know go into full-blown whiny screaming temper-tantrum-the-world-is-over mode when the car got stuck in a ditch and my dad had to push it out. I'd say that's panicing.

    Im not sure that there is a pattern for each group as a whole. Im wondering how the "usual" leadership models do-- ESTJ, ENTJ, ENFJ and ESTP. Im also wondering if there is a social aspect in this with social roleplay.

    Is that because you're always drunk like you said before?

    What do you think?

    I'm probably an IxTx. ISTp or INTj most likely, which would put me in the alpha or delta quadra. Sometimes I find I deal better with bigger problems whereas I can let the little things get to me. So I suppose it works for me. The question is why do you think betas/gammas panic in a crisis and alphas/deltas don't?

    I'm actually quite cool under mild stress. I try to take on the cool, sober facade under pressure. The only things that make me panic are when my own feelings are at stake. Damn INFjs...

    interesting...

    INFJs are Delta and panic in crisis situations so that statement cant hold true.


    ESTJs and ISTPs definitely thrive in the situations though...

    ESTJs love that they can take control of the situation...

    ISTPs just love the rush (at least I know I do)... adrenaline junkies I guess

    Yah, I don't really panic. I'm generally pretty calm. I don't think this corresponds to entire quadras, because there seems to be types in every quadra that would and types that wouldn't.

    Yeah, the model definitely works for me (alpha). In a situation of extreme stress, I'm more calm, but in day-to-day life, I can get extremely stressed out for no reason in particular - though this may have something to do with the small stresses that an ENTP becomes 'extremely petulant' about.
