Life is like a ten-speed bicycle.

Risking Your Life without a Second Thought: Intuitive Decision-Making and Extreme Altruism

“When faced with the chance to help someone in mortal danger, what is our first response?
*
Do we leap into action, only later considering the risks to ourselves?
*
Or must instinctive self-preservation be overcome by will-power in order to act?
*
We investigate this question by examining the testimony of Carnegie Hero Medal Recipients (CHMRs), extreme altruists who risked their lives to save others. We collected published interviews with CHMRs where they described their decisions to help.
*
We then had participants rate the intuitiveness versus deliberativeness of the decision-making process described in each CHMR statement.
*
The statements were judged to be overwhelmingly dominated by intuition; to be significantly more intuitive than a set of control statements describing deliberative decision-making; and to not differ significantly from a set of intuitive control statements.
*
This remained true when restricting to scenarios in which the CHMRs had sufficient time to reflect before acting if they had so chosen.
*
Text-analysis software found similar results. These findings suggest that high-stakes extreme altruism may be largely motivated by automatic, intuitive processes.”

A viewers response on letting go: .. … …. ..letting go of judgement is the biggest though, especially self judgement

.
*
*
*
With an average of 60,000 thoughts a day passing through our noggin, a maximum of 123 a second under stress, so letting go seems more important, more pertinent, than personal achievement or glory.
*
*
*
Our goal is to let go enough, to get below this chatter, all this distraction, all this robbing of life and eventually happiness.
*
*
*
Yes, letting go is a big theme, a direction to covet, pursue, enjoy.
*
*
*
Letting go takes no extra time, actually it grants us time to be aware, to be able to pursue happiness after healing.
