Lessons from the Amygdala Hijack

We have all had the experience of doing something in the heat of the moment that we regretted later. Our reaction flew out of the gate before we could catch it. It’s like our rational mind stopped and what came out not only surprised us but everyone else around.

You end up saying “How could I do that, what could I have possibly been thinking?”

Well in reality you weren’t thinking you were overwhelmed with an emotional reaction.

You were hijacked.

IATF Visiting Faculty Member and Emotional Intelligence Expert Dr. Relly Nadler provides street smart strategies on what you should do during one of these hijacks.  Dr. Nadler offers IATF members this free article What Was I Thinking?  Handling the Hijack.
