Your stress response type is…


You’re a fLight type.

Flight types avoid pain, stress and awkwardness, through escape or avoidance. It also means that you have these positive traits: healthy retreat, respected boundaries, industriousness, and perseverance.

They believe, subconsciously or otherwise, that perfection will keep them safe and bring them love and belonging.

Let’s dive deeper into your stress response type, and find out what influences your natural tendencies and how to work with that to feel less stress and more peace.

They are worriers, achievers, busybodies, always rushing to and from one thing or another. And if they are still for a moment, their brains are rushing all the same.

Flight types can range from perfectionistic doers to rebellious nonconformists; their main tell isn’t in what their life circumstances look like, but in how they are consistently, tirelessly running from the pain of childhood abandonment. Their drug of choice? Busyness.

When it comes to stress, why do we go into Flight mode?

Often, we use anger as a secondary emotion to cover up our uncomfortable primary emotions.

These are things like:

😞 sadness,

😞 disappointment,

😞 loneliness, etc.

Underneath it all, flight types believe, subconsciously or otherwise, that perfection will keep them safe and bring them love and belonging.

When you’re in Flight mode, you’ll often feel:


Stressed and frantic or restless.


Obsessively busy.


Afraid of under-performing.


Pushing to the point of exhaustion.



And those feelings can make us behave in less than powerful ways:

Overcommitting to projects

Trying to take on too much

Overachieving and Perfectionism

Overworking and Burn Out

But don’t stress love…

These are all totally normal Flight type feelings.


The truth is that our stress response type is almost always the result of past trauma.

Often from things we wouldn’t even consider a ‘trauma’ – that sounds too severe for that time someone stole our toy on the playground, but the roots of our behaviours go deep.

There are ways to find the roots of our stress response type and work to bring them back under our control.

Hey, I’m Ali Smith!

I’m delighted that you have chosen to come and hang out with me for a while. In addition to being an accredited coach and therapist, I am also super proud to call myself a best selling author; “When she rises” was published in 2019 – a book collaboration with 11 other women coming together to share their stories of transformation.

Dr Gabor Mate, trauma expert says the following “Trauma is not what happens to you. Trauma is what happens inside you as a result of what happens to you”.

Its always the stories we tell ourselves that define us. There came a distinct day when I made a decision to walk away from victimhood and step into the purpose that I knew God was calling me to.

No more “Why me?” or “What’s wrong with me?”

Just self compassion, healing and growth.

You too have a choice.
