Question 1 of 35

How well do you handle stress?

"I handle stress very well. I hadn't experienced much stress growing up, but when I went to my first year of college, I learned the meaning of stress! I had a full class load and was working part-time. I had to learn to become very organized and manage my time well. I find that being organized decreases my stress and allows me to remain calm in any stressful event I encounter."
