One would recognize stress because the mental stressor is in effect. Usually, the mental stressor come into existence with other stressors.
When one feels stress, there is always "mental stressor" there. If there are multiple stressors but the mental stressor does not involve, the body would manage by reacting to stress involuntary. (This is the physical stress response.) On the other hand, when one holds some kind of emotion, the mental stressor came into action, and made him/her feel the stress. In this situation, the stress response change by how one would feel the stress and interpret it. (Psychological stress response)
Especially on Psychological stress response, people consciously deal with the stress. On physical stress response, that itself deals with the stress, but on psychological stress response, there usually is some unpleasant feeling attached to it. People deal with stress to avoid the unpleasantness.
