Fight or flight are the adrenaline responses we are taught in school. We will either fight or run away when confronted or so we are taught. This always seemed incomplete to me.
It turns out there are more responses than just these. There are 5 in addition to fight or flight there are freeze, posture, and submit. We are not even confined to staying with in any one of these during a given event.
These responses are well covered in the NRA’s “Personal Protection Outside The Home ” class.
I’ll more thoroughly cover each in future posts.
