So how you think is really hugely influenced by how you feel. In fact these two things affect each other. Thinking affects feeling and feeling affects thinking. It goes back and forward in a loop. But the dominant factor really is feeling. So for a whole bunch of neuroscientific reasons we haven’t got time to explain. Actually if you want to change what people do, you’ve got to change their thinking. If you want to change their thinking, you actually have to change how they feel. This is a much more significant impact on that than the other way around.
So under pressure the frontal lobe shuts down in the simplest of tasks. Subtract three from that number. Can’t do it, that is happening to all of you when you’re under pressure. Your brain is built this way, so one of the things you need to learn to do is to get control of that physiological level and switch from a chaotic signal to what’s called coherent. So the thing that underpins brain function is the ability to generate a coherent signal. So there’s variance, but it’s stable variance as opposed to wildly fluctuant variance. And that is the source of your brilliance.
Recognize? Lol, no, you flatter yourself 😑

And what do Trump and the media do every day? "Trigger" people's frontal lobe into shutting down so that they act and think on emotion instead of logic.
Anyone else besides me recognizing the enormous psyop being played on us?

Is there a thread you don't bring Trump into the discussion. Is this the extent of your comprehension of the OPs thread?
No wonder ATS has gone donwhill.
Then again there are those who seem to thrive on the confusion he creates. Go figure.

Don't get me wrong here. Nobody said that emotions are generally a bad thing, it's just energy in motion. We should be aware of our feeligs in the "basements" in order to take control of our thought process in the loft, that's all.
Compassion is one of those coherent feelings your brain thrives with, to pick up on your example. Detachment (or apathy) would be it's negative pole if you will, leaving you with the kinda chaos in your head to start the lobotomy with again.
That's the whole ordeal in a nutshell. The process of awareness and transformation, that will help you maintain that "State of Flow" you'd need in order to be brilliant.
