(which draws distinction between four types of stress) and some of the strategies
of coping. First, the main postulates of the theory are summarized. Here are
considered the metamotivational modes of being and the concept of dominance.
Additionally, a few empirical studies are presented which point out the differences
of experiencing stress regarding the dominant metamotivational state. Finally, the
conceptual definitions of the four types of stress are given and divers possibilities
of coping.
