“fight or flight” is an older notion and only pertains to men. Women have been recently studied and their responses are often “tend and befriend”. It is important in your work to mention the gender differences. I did really like the suggestions you made on positive actions to do!

Charlotte, excellent point! But I can tell you I wasn’t about to tend or befriend that snake in the moment, though I was deeply grateful for her warning. Your point is well-taken however, and research breaking through the limits of the fight-or-flight notion is inspiring.

Charlotte – Everyone has a fright, flight, fight response.

Its the next step that’s differnt – women flee to a friend.

Fright, fight, flight ………….friend
