  1. i behave just like a small child when he got some new toys.and sometimes like an old lady waiting to die. it depends on the situation.

  2. Sometimes it reminds me of the movie Ants where a stick falls across their path unexpectedly and all the ants balk not knowing what to do. Then I hear the calm voice of reason: just go around a different way. Or go over. It’s all good! Have a new situation? Learn a new way through.

  3. It really does depend on the situation and the framing of the situation. If I encountered a stampede of people running I would have to evaluate if it were a race, or a health hazard. (And even then, these old knees aren’t running!) I believe, although this may be completely self serving, for the most part, I react with curiosity.

  4. I immediately let my guard up and become very focused on what’s going on around me, so that I can gauge how to get out of the situation the fastest and least messiest way as I possibly can.

      1. Not always, but it works majority of the time. I’ve been doing it so long that I’ve become an expert at it. Lol

  5. Friendly, open-minded, curious, learning, observing, offering & looking for support…if I am nervous, I try to make others laugh / smile …also to help myself by creating a positive atmosphere.

  6. Well, if it sounds like it’s going to be a good situation (seminar for work), I’ll be nervous and excited. If it sounds bad/scary situation (recent diagnosis of cancer), I will act stoic until I’m by myself and then I’ll break down.
