Every person, regardless of age, gender, and social status, has been in a stressful situation at least once in their life. It can be associated with anything: personal and family relationships, work, health. The complexity of the situation and the losses it entails may be different, but its impact on a person's life is determined by his ability to withstand stress

Stress state that appears in a person as a result of the influence of negative factors on him is a feeling of anxiety, tension, sometimes fear or horror. In order to resist the harmful influence of these factors, the human psyche has a protective mechanism. Its activation significantly weakens internal conflict and negative emotions, helping to perceive information in a softer format. The defense mechanism can manifest itself in different ways, often a person seems to be watching the situation from the outside, while being able to correctly analyze what happened, adapt and respond adequately.

At certain moments, often associated with stressful or difficult situations, there is a switching of these "I's".

  • periodic dominance of a particular personality - at a time a person is only in one of his-states, there are no displacements;
