Thursday’s Big Idea
The Risk Perception Gap
Happy Halloween! This is one day out of the year where the star of the show is clearly fear. It can be fun to experience this emotion because it is so primitive. If you surprise someone and say "Boo!" they might jump, or freeze up. There, you got 'em!
In today's lesson, we explore how fear works, and how it is so difficult to control. We also explore the consequences of not controlling this emotion, which can cause us to make all kinds of bad decisions - bad decisions that we make based on fear every day, not just on Halloween.
