I hate it! >_< The deadlines for assignments being too tight, the study fees increasing, the changes in exam schedules, the relationship with people around, especially those whom I dislike but have to hang around with and so on. It makes me stress, explode and finally collapse. Though it forces me to devote more effort, the quality of output usually seemed to be not as outstanding as it should be after that much effort had been put into it.

I simply can't stand it, but I guess most of people enjoy working under pressure as it makes them to be more productive. So what do you think about it?

Well, I like and don't like pressure. Sometimes when I'm under pressure by my friends and family it adds humor to the situation, but there are other times where I'm just to tired and I feel like, "Do I have to do this now? :whistle: "... :lol:

I always try to maintain a "blank-looking" face in every situation, because I feel the need to keep silent (and not just burst out mad coz' I'm pressured with stuff).

So I voted the second option, but I'm like a Submarine...

Without pressure, most likely is that I will never get anything done. So I don't particularly like it, but I know that I need it.

Geez, I can be so freaking lazy <_<

I find it best to work under pressure, it keeps me motivated. Also it works well in my line of work. Getting shot at is a good way to get things done quicker.

I don't like pressure, but I don't really feel it during school. I'm a complete procrastinator from the age of 9(seriously...). I work on anything that doesn't interest me at the last moment ahahaha B)

I do nothing when I'm not under pressure.
But I don't like being under pressure either. I guess, it's best when it's coming from myself or someone I like.
I really need to be pushed...

I'm a procrastinator. I'm using to having the pressure of an upcoming deadline. I don't necessary like it, I'm just use to it. I'm a very lax person.

^ I agree completely.

For me, my family puts pressure on me to get good grades in school, or I won;t be able to get any money, and therefore, I know I won;t be able to buy any more games for my Wii and DS, won;t be able to go to the movies, and most importantly, I won't be able to buy any H!P goods.

Of course, if the pressure to get good grades wasn't there, I would probably get grounded with the grades I would take home.

Life is but a movie.

I really hate pressure. I'm a born worrier, so pressure just adds to my worrying. But I'm also a procrastinator so I have to deal with pressure a lot. In school I would never finish my assignments until the last possible second. That was mostly because of sheer laziness. :lol: I wouldn't really say pressure has ever motivated me to anything, it was failing that did. My family never pressured me into getting good grades. Their mottos were "do your best" and "at least you tried." But I guess in a way the pressure to get into college made me want to get good grades. :ph34r:

Aside from school, I never let my friends or family pressure me into anything. If something is a bad idea, regardless of who's doing it, I wouldn't care.

i never got any money for doing things

my parents tried to make me work with fear, but i just never cared... i was allways having terrible grades in school, and i even repeated a year (repeated? can't find the word)

and buying games were never a problem, here piracy is EXTREMELY strong, an snes game for example would cost less than 1/4 of the original price, so i just waited for my birthday and asked 3 or 4 games, same for christmas, so 6~8 games a year were more than enough

piracy is almost a culture, people think of buying false stuff before imagining that the original thing is there

even now, i have a nintendo DS for 3 years and have only 1 original game (megaman ZX) all other games i've played were through flashcards
same for ps2, i have it for 4 years and i've never even put a original copy inside it (not even rented)

ofcourse when i have the money, i do buy the original stuff (like morning musume singles or some games) but i'm just an exception, here you choose your console based on wich has the easiest piracy
just sad :/ why the hell was i born in this stupid place

^You can't change those circumstances, but you can make the most out of them I guess.

I like pressure because it makes me a stronger person. Sure it kills me in the process, but when you emerge out of it, you're a stronger person. Other than work oriented pressure...peer pressure never forced me into doing anything :lol: I don't believe in getting a girlfriend now, I don't believe in ever buying a car or a house where I come from. You have to spend the next 20 years paying it off, which translates to slavery by debt. Shocking thing is, so many people consent to it!

I believe freedom is more important than a car or a house, and I'd rather live life on the move rather than to slog away 20 years of my life to pay for something material, something that won't even add much to your life XD And hey, I don't think I'd get married for having that sort of thinking! Too bad for me I guess. That sort of peer pressure, I don't like...to conform to society and to do what everyone else is doing just because they're doing it, no matter how ridiculous it is.

I like working under pressure because then I'll do better than usual, knowing I'm under pressure.
Very simple. :w00t:

I'm one of the biggest procrastinators you'll find. The one thing I don't like about working under pressure is that, I think I do a crappy job and then get really good marks on my work. I feel like I've cheated all those hard working people.

Not working under pressure, I have time to check over things and do stuff to the best of my ability. I've realized that it's better to get things done right away and not have to be as stressed out about it, rather than purposely doing them last minute.

I guess pressure has made me realize some things and caused me to change, so that's one of the good points about it. Although I don't want pressure, it's one of the things that keeps me going :)

It seems like most of us here agree that pressure keeps us going...

But I still voted "No, I don't like having pressure" since pressure makes the process less interesting :)

1 word describe pressure = bad :( . it's belong to negative nature.
for me working under pressure is not healthy, it's keeps my brain working more then it should.
for now, i manage to resist myself from working under pressure and the result is i'm happy
life should have happiness :)

^x? Peer pressure? so far I have not encountered it, or not remembering to giving in on something like that.
And with that, the pressure of my father being irritated about me still studying, I'm also not working well (but fine) with my studies, my response to pressure is bad, so I don't like it...
What?
