The answer to this is A. Hans Selye. There are a lot of things that people know now about stress because of Hans Selye. He has proposed a theory that is still being used by a lot of professionals at present time. He has stated through his theory that people usually have different responses to stress.

There are some who feel alarmed, some would try to resist feeling stressed out, and some would just adapt to the stress even if they are exposed to it every single time. This explains why people keep coming back to things that are causing them to feel stressed out.

To prove this theory, there are various things that the body feels if it wants to show that it has experienced stress. For example, you get a bruise when you hit a hard object but it will heal on its own.

Hans selye-hans selye is the only theorist who proposed an intriguing theory about stress that has been widely used and accepted by professionals today. he conceptualized two types of human response to stress, the gas or general adaptation syndrome which is characterized by stages of alarm, resistance and exhaustion. the local adaptation syndrome controls stress through a particular body part. example is when you have been wounded in your finger, it will produce pain to let you know that you should protect that particular damaged area, it will also produce inflammation to limit and control the spread of injury and facilitate healing process. another example is when you are frequently lifting heavy objects, eventually, you arm, back and leg muscles hypertorphies to adapt to the stress of heavy lifting.
