Who is more high strung?  Who makes "mountains out of mole hills?"

It depends on what kind of stress, I can be anxious and sometimes intense but I'm better at dealing with unexpected changes. He's likely to just shut down and refuse but he's better at handling the anticipation of a stressful situation, I'll be awake all night worrying while he's soundly asleep.

I would say DH is better under stressful situations due to his job, I don't think either one of us are high strung, the last one not sure.

honestly it depends on the situations.  Some I handle better, some my wife handles better.  Sadly, we can't always know in advance which will be which.  I do tend to be more hot-headed, but I am working on that.

He handles stress horribly so I guess I do.

We both handle stress well. However I am more of the making mounds out of mole holes then he is. He deals with the facts and I look at the what ifs.
