It is an uneasy feeling that does not make us think clearly until it finally takes complete control of us. The triggers can not be more different.
Fears of tight spaces, of the darkness, of the future, or even the mere sight of a spider, are some things that more or less panic us.
But we are not likely to differ much in the majority, is the fear of a physical confrontation. There are, in my opinion, very few people who do not even get a stomach-grumble when it becomes palpable.
Even professional boxers get into the ring with a certain amount of excitement. Although they know exactly what to expect and have gone through this scenario tens of times, they do not leave the routine completely cold.
An argument that threatens to escalate and become palpable, can quickly soften the knees and brings the thought carousel to proper speed.
Nervousness sets in. The voice becomes shaky, the breathing faster. You start to sweat. The muscles tighten and at the same time the heart rate increases so much that you feel that your heart leaps out of your chest at any moment.
What happens in these tactile impulsive phases of fear, however, is an extremely ingenious mechanism that evolution has given us. Namely the reflex escape or fight.
Thanks to this reflex, our early ancestors were able to flee from dangerous animals and, in seemingly hopeless situations, were able to fight.
Our consciousness realizes when we are in danger and initiates the release of adrenaline through the brain.
This makes us ready for "bigger tasks". Because the adrenalin helps us to an extra dose of power, so that we can run faster, for example, or even become less sensitive to pain.
