Soldiers often react automatically during a battle because of their training. What would happen if they paused to think about what they were doing?

I think they would just get shot by their enemies. Is there anything else I can add to that?

  • Socials -

    They might be so scared, they couldn't move or follow orders. They might also realize they were going against the moral principles of their society, and not be able to kill the enemy.

  • Socials -

    Oh, I never thought about it that way, thank you so much Ms. Sue.

  • Overlearning & Stress -

    When under stress, only responses that have been overlearned (practiced repeatedly even after they have been learned so they become essentially automatic), will be performed.

    This overlearning principle is used when training for sports too. However, many students fail to use overlearning when studying for exams. This is why cramming is ineffective. Since the material is not overlearned, much of the material learned the previous night cannot be recalled under the stress of taking the exam.

    I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
