Those who are stress tolerant can effectively cope with stress when it arises. They do not feel hopeless or panicked when faced with emergencies, and are able to self-regulate their emotional and behavioral responses.
They feel they can handle challenging situations on their own, with the belief that their own efforts can produce desirable outcomes.
At work, stress tolerant people can not only persevere in chaotic environments, but be motivated by them. They are inspired to succeed when faced with a challenging task rather than fold under pressure.
Rather than panic when pulled in multiple directions, they are able to prioritize what needs to get done and focus on the task at hand.
