"Test-Taking Anxiety"

One statement frequently made by many is how difficult it is for them to take tests. Conversely, performing tasks as a demonstration of knowledge outside the test-taking environment comes easily. So why is it a struggle to be tested on knowledge when people excel with daily demonstrations? The typical answer is labeled "test-taking anxiety" and describes the pressure felt when asked to perform in that testing environment. Simply put, this phenomenon is a barrier that people struggle to overcome.

The question I pose to you first is about the anxiety label applied to test-taking in general. Are you experiencing anxiety as it is defined, or are you using the social definition? Anxiety is the mind and body's reaction to stressful, dangerous, or unfamiliar situations, described as the sense of uneasiness, distress, or dread felt before a significant event. Based on this information, it is natural to respond to this question with a "yes"; however, this definition also provides us with an aspect that can be controlled. What I am referring to is the descriptor of stress.

Tests that cause "anxiety," like those found in schools and workplace performance measurements, are not dangerous or unfamiliar. Conversely, they are stressful because of the context in which they appear. We also stress over the outcomes of the test and the need to perform well. Other factors include pride and confidence in our abilities to demonstrate our knowledge which creates the test's purpose. Given this information, test-taking anxiety is redefined as test-taking stress and is manageable with Hypnosis.

Remember that Hypnosis can help you with several factors that create stress. First, Hypnosis decreases the stress you regularly experience, specifically for test taking through techniques to have you control the mental and emotional strain caused by them. Second, Hypnosis helps you discover additional techniques and stress management coping skills to help you feel calm and confident about the test itself. Using the power of your mind, Hypnosis provides a quick and straightforward solution to the stress caused by the test and gives techniques to improve your test performance. As a result, test-taking is a positive experience you can embrace instead of rejecting and stressing about it!
