Stress in Visualized Threatening Situations.
Cain, Leila S.
Threat and coping ability were inversely related for 20 high and low anxiety subjects. Lows formulated longer free responses, but fewer were realistic. Ego-threatening situations increased attention and cue utilization for both groups. Highs had more stereotyped self-images, but sought less "reassurance" from their immediate family than lows.
