How do you cope under pressure

Pressure

I can honestly say pressure isn't something that gets to me really - I'm not the type of person who finds themselves stressed out or on the edge of buckling under it anyway.

And that's not to say that I don't experience it, I do quite often, especially with the job that I do.

But I really do think I'm just too laid back and would much rather take everything in my stride than worry.

As I said, with the type of job that I do I'm often always on the go - usually from very early in the morning to late in the evening.

I have long, long drives to fit in and very often have to do a lot in a short space of time to make sure the demands from customers are met.

Part of my role is to make sure I manage, instruct and teach some of our newer, less-experienced engineers, which often has the most amount of stress linked to it...

And I also have to meet, greet and sometimes sweet-talk some of our potential customers

And all a lot of the time on very little sleep.

But I don't let the pressure of any of it get to me - what's the point - it just brings nothing but stress and headache - two things I really can't do with.

But let's take a little look at you.

How well do you think you react to pressure?

Do you think you're the type of person who would buckle under too much of it?

Well, Goldsmiths are giving you a chance to test yourself on this subject...and then win a really good prize by doing it too.

Goldsmiths have launched a game which tests reaction times and tells you if you've got reactions of a F1 or a Go-Kart driver.

Its a really fun game and works far better on a touch screen phone or tablet, it does work on a computer but I don't think you will be getting a very high score.

Its a simple game all you have to do is hit the pads when they light up.

My highest score is 19...let me know your highest score in the comments of even tweet me a screen shot, I would love to know if you can handle the pressure.

Goldsmiths want you to try out their reflex testing game (play by entering the link below) and submit the highest score you get from it to the raffle copter entire at the bottom of the post

You could win a £150 Goldsmiths voucher by having a go

Yep - one hundred and fifty pounds!

That's hardly pressure buckling stuff is it

But that's not all, there is another, very easy way to improve your chances of winning too:
