From Stress Reduction to Compulsion!

stress reduction

Stress-reducing emotions rule the Ps for the most part. What one can’t do today will wait for the morrow. (And few of us have any rejection to stress reduction methods, right?)  However when the impulse hits them, the adrenaline must flow as they attend to the compulsion of the moment.

When Do the Ps Need Stress Reduction?

Fear of making a wrong move dominates the P lifestyle. So, when they make a decision, the uncertainty that they may have made the wrong decision plagues them. They crave to go with the flow and enter a peaceful, happy mode of existence. The uncertainty of their decision disturbs them.  It is at this point that they will also, like the Js, need a method of stress reduction.

The P’s Relaxed Mode

Their relaxed mode tends to stimulate a host of pleasant feelings like calm optimism, the urge of pleasure, the desire to play and enjoy. The P in the different temperaments — SP, NT, and NF — will stir quite divergent interpretations of these emotions.  In the NT, perhaps they will only ripple the surface of emotional calm.

Stress Reduction Is Easy In the Impulse of the Moment

Again, we cannot list the emotions of the P since, for them,  they can call any emotion to the front line of experience at any time.  The conditions of the moment decide everything. What we do know of the P lifestyle is that their emotions all tend to flow in the direction of finding pleasure and calm.  And their emotions appear most often in the impulse of the moment.
