"Good instincts usually tell you what to do long before your head has figured it out."
~ Michael Burke ~
The fight or flight question is an interesting one. When truly faced with a real threat, which is our instinct? Which do we choose? Do we flee the scene as quickly as possible to get out of harms way? Or do we run into it to see if we can help others or stand off the foe, whatever the foe may be?
Like everything else in life, I can see merit and validity to both sides, so ultimately, I suppose, and as with all things, it depends on the situation, and what our gut tells us, and intervention from whoever we're with, and from above.
In a crises situation, I do whatever feels right.
