Dolphin Stress Test


The picture posted here has 2 identical dolphins in it. It was used in a case study on stress levels at Loma Linda Medical Center.

Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins are identical. A closely monitored, scientific study of a group revealed that in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress would find differences in the two dolphins. The number of differences observed matches closely to the amount of stress the observer is experiencing.

If you find more than one or two differences you may be experiencing stress. Look at the photograph.

One thought on “Dolphin Stress Test”

  1. Hi Bengt – The response to this stress test should definitely be considered in all corporate environments as a means of measuring executive stress. I’m surprised that it is not included in any psychometric profiling exercises. Why is that? Hard to understand. I’m sure it’s infallible! Suspect I should be checking myself in somewhere (lots of fluffy white robes and spa facilities would be an added bonus)
