Ofcourse any commanding officer is well educated in how to deal with stressors, actually being trapped such an enormous distance from home, is something completely different.
Its just like being a soldier, you wont know how you react under fire or after having killed somebody, until youve actually tried it.
So on the one hand you say we don't know how it would affect someone.
On the other you have decided, based on information that you say you don't have any more than anyone else, that Janeway's behaviour is more realistic than for example the self-doubt Kirk expressed in "Balance of Terror".
He sat in his quarters and said to McCoy "Why me? I look around that bridge and I see them men are waiting for me to make the next move. And Bones what if I'm wrong?"
To me that sounds like he was affect, so which captain are you thinking of that was impervious?
