Which of the following is NOT a dimension of hardiness? the ability to view new responsibilities as challenges rather than stressors a commitment to following through with goals the desire to escape stress by avoiding stressful situations a willingness to be proactive in confronting stress

Answers

Answer:    Desire to escape stress by avoiding stressful situations

Explanation: Hardiness, according to scientists, is the ability of an individual to cope with stress effectively, while achieving some resistance to stress, that is, hardiness. Stressors are present everywhere in everyday modern life, and sometimes such stressors can accumulate so much stress in the individual that it can happen that the individual is pushed beyond the limit of endurance, that is, to succumb to stress, not knowing how to cope with it. For those who are susceptible to stress, not knowing how to deal with it, there is a tendency to avoid stressful situations in order to simply avoid stress.

In contrast, there are those who deal with stressors and, in doing so, successfully overcome stress, they develop themselves, become stronger, resistant to stress. Here, again, according to scientists, it is necessary to develop a strategy for dealing with stress, then to have a firm attitude and the belief that someone can cope with stress, it seems that in fact, such people can successfully cope with stress. This kind of stress resistance, i.e hardiness, can only be achieved by those who deal with stress, and therefore do not avoid it.
