Dolphins and Stress

I’m not sure exactly how it works, but this is amazingly accurate.

Read the full description before looking at the picture.

The photo below has 2 identical dolphins in it. It was used in a case study on stress level at St. Mary’s Hospital.

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 t the dolphins are identical; a person under stress would find differences in the two dolphins.

If there are many differences found between both dolphins, it means that the person is experiencing a great amount of stress.

Look at the photograph and if you find more than one or two differences you may want to take a vacation.

Note: I found this in a file from 2004. I suspect stress levels are much higher than back then so the differences perceived are much higher now!
