Wow, that sounds like the opposite of CBT! I know when I get anxious it helps if I use CBT techniques to try to identify my thoughts and to see if my anxiety is warranted. If it isn't really warranted I feel a little calmer. And usually it's out of proportion, and recognising that calms me down a bit.

I imagine that trying to get anxious would be a little scary, though. How would I calm myself down again?

I think for me, anxiety is so unpleasant that I can't imagine provoking it on purpose. And it might be difficult to remain analytical and detached enough to get useful results.

Just my two cents.
