A crisis is based on an escalation of problems. The number, origin and weighting of problems can be treated as secondary while announcing a crisis. The trigger of a crisis is the fact that for an acting person – because of the given frame conditions – a solution is or seems to be impossible.
Primary, the subjective impression of the acting person is the reason that within the given frame conditions the problem which created the crises seems to be insolvable but from an objective point of view it is not insolvable. In theory this subjective aspect is of minor relevance because in almost all problem cases it is not possible to proof the insolvable nature in a conclusive way.
The bottom line is: it doesn’t matter if a problem is subjective or objective insolvable. But for the solution of the problem this has a high importance because it reveals a number of starting points for solutions which are different to the professional solution.
