Did you know that ancestrally, humans are programmed to behave in certain ways during times of high stress.
In very stressful situations, we have a fight or flight response.
In recent decades however this has had to change, thus changing our ancestral coding.
Driving can often be very stressful for new drivers. Avoiding immediate danger can be a very stressful scenario, in which our response must be physically quick, yet you must remain mentally calm.
This requires familiarity in highly stressful scenarios obtained through driving practice with a licensed instructor.
You will likely have experienced what your “flight or fight” response is as a new driver.
