Stress Test

Thanks to one of our friends, Bern Terry from Lifeline Systems, for contributing this to Fresh Ideas At Work.

The photo used in this test has two almost identical dolphins in it.  It was used in research to assess stress levels. 

Look carefully at both dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins appear identical.

A closely monitored, scientific study of a group of adults (18-58 yrs) revealed that in spite of the fact that the dolphins are virtually clones, a person under stress would see differences between the two dolphins. If there seem to be many differences between the dolphins, the person seeing them is experiencing a great amount of stress.

Look at the photograph.  If you find more than three differences, you really need a change of pace!
