The most common responses to a sudden danger are fight or flight. You either fight back, or you run away. I’m obviously being simplistic, but so is nature.
There’s a couple other ones, the freeze and fawn, where you simply freeze up, or when you flatter the threat, ingratiate yourself with it.
And of course, there’s the… fornicate option. Some people do get off on danger.
But realistically, the world belongs to those who have the rarest sixth response.
And I know, you might think that is just another way of saying fight.
And that’s part of the problem…
