As we are all unique and individual - so are our situations and circumstances and our perceptions of life. In that, our Stress responses are triggered through different stimuli. There is no 2 people who will have the exact same Stress Response to a situation as their perception of the circumstances will differ even in the slightest detail. So how one persons Stress Response affects them will be different from how anothers affects them.
