Stress is not a useful term for scientist because it is such a highly subjective phenomenon that has no single definition. It is always seen from a physicist and psychological perspective. Stress is a Latin word "stringer", meaning to draw tight and it was used in the 17th century to describe hardships and afflictions. By 18th century stress denoted force, pressure strain or strong efforts referring primarily to an individual producing strain. Profounder of this view indicates that an individual's stress level can be measured the same way we can measure physical strain upon a machine. Stress based on this perspective looks at stress as an outside stimulus.
