Freeze, Asses, Attack!

A real fight just about never comes in the right time and is always scary. After all, for average people, a confrontation is not something that happens to them everyday. Therefore, when a scary or harrowing situation occurs, everyone freezes at first. Then, there are three types of reactions: • Staying frozen- staying in total shock and doing absolutely nothing effective; • Going crazy- becoming hyper and essentially just causing a bigger mess and confusion; • Or assessing the situation properly and reacting to it accordingly.
