Resiliency, Panic, and Anxiety

"Resilience is a precious skill. People who have it tend to also have three underlying advantages:
- a belief that they can influence life events;
- a tendency to find meaningful purpose in life’s turmoil;
- and a conviction that they can learn from both positive and negative experiences."



"Panic occurs if and only if three other conditions are present, Quarantelli concluded.
- First, people must feel that they may be trapped...
- Second, panic requires a sensation of great helplessness - which often grows from interaction with others...
- The final prerequisite to panic is a sense of profound isolation.



"As it turns out, people with higher trait anxiety are more likely to rip out their air supply, Morgan found.... he could predict who would panic with 83 percent accuracy. Essentially, he found that certain people are slightly more likely to lose touch with their reality when under physical stress.... They have overreacted, in the purest form of panic.
