Low neuroticism and high extraversion seem to be predictors for people performing well during and after extremely stressful circumstances. Here we investigate whether these personality factors are linked to stress sensitivity. Stress was induced through negative feedback on gaming performance and stress sensitivity was determined as the difference in baseline physiological variables (skin conductance, heart rate and heart rate variability) before and after the game, as well as this difference… CONTINUE READING
