The results show how to higher levels of stress induced worse execution in the task of working memory, being this effect greater, when also the people more sensitive to the stress against the less sensitive. In other words, the effect of anxiety and therefore its interference in the execution of tasks depends on both an external stressing component and the greater or lesser sensitivity to the stress of the person. So, and going back to the example above, the student who has a stress-sensitive trait, that is, to be nervous with a little stress, will be at a disadvantage with respect to his companions when responding adequately to an exam. In other words, at the same level of elevated external stress given by the evaluation test, the most sensitive ones will also live the situation as more threatening and with it, their execution and at the end, their qualification may be less than their actual level of learning. This can lead to certain students, sensitive to stress, to be shown as "bad students", by not getting good grades as much as they strive to study.
