Refraining from bad behavior toward a significant other during stressful life events is more important than showing positive behavior, according to a Baylor University study. Negative actions tend to trigger more intense and immediate responses, according to the study by Keith Sanford, Ph.D., professor of psychology and neuroscience in Baylor's College of Arts & Sciences. "When people face stressful life events, they are especially sensitive to negative behavior in their relationships, such as when a partner seems to be argumentative, overly emotional, withdrawn or fails to do something that was expected," he said. (Terry Goodrich, assistant director of Baylor Media Communications, is pitched this research to national media. She covers psychology research and faculty.)
