The Angry Hornet
Angry Hornet: (Self-Control/Social Skills) There are qualities and behaviors that served us well in our primitive past… “Fight or Flight” is a classic example. But in our modern world, “pause, think, evaluate” will be of more value, but this new skill must be taught. Success in dealing with the variety of life situations will depend on our ability to override our evolutionarily designed predisposition to engage in either a fight or flight. This is not to say that those two reactions are not occasionally appropriate, but the ability to hold our emotions and behaviors at bay until we can rationally assess the situation is a learned skill.
