Stress and anxiety both are innate genetic dispositions but are also enhanced with social pressures or developed due to social and individual expectations. Future studies can focus interventions and treatments based on natural tendencies and those that are newly diagnosed, i.e. PTSD due to traumatic events or intensified due to social pressures and expectations. Results found could enlighten the population and research to the implications of social influence and self-efficacy vulnerabilities and create pathways to understanding how respondents either overcome or succumb to the pressures and how psychology can help guide prevention and implement possible CBT that encourage opportunities for practice and social change and increase satisfaction levels when transitioning from education to career phases. Studies such as this can help unravel the complications of American culture and global concerns in highlighting the detrimental effects that social expectation has on all citizens and the causality that could occur with stress and anxiety trying to meet or overcome such pressures.
