Music Teaching is a Stressful Job!!

I know that music teaching is a stressful occupation, particularly if, like me, you feel real commitment and passion for your subject and your students. So, when I came across this stress test, I thought I would share it with you, my wonderful Crescendo Community!
I am not exactly sure how it works, but this is amazingly accurate.
The picture below has 2 identical dolphins in it. It was used in a case study on stress levels at St. Mary's Hospital.

Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins are identical. A closely monitored, scientific study revealed that, in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical; a person under stress would find differences in the two dolphins. The more differences a person finds between the dolphins, the more stress that person is experiencing.
Look at the photograph and if you find more than one or two differences you may want to take a holiday.
