Is it true that acting quickly and instinctively is the best response to a crisis? Or are there times when an urgent situation requires a more careful consideration and a slower response?
Yes, in science I have finished the section on life saving, and you have to act quickly, or the victim may drown. It is important to know things about life saving such as: don’t get to close to the victim; and don’t touch the victim unless they are unconscious. This is for your safety.
Another thing is if the victim grabs you, you must act quickly or you may drown, yourself, due to the victim panicking. You must take a deep breath and go under, the victim will let go and come back up to the surface, then just swim under the water until you are away from the victim. Then try again to rescue him or her.
There are some cases when you need to think about where you are, before you act. Take war for an example. Generals have to know the area before they go to battle. Battling is something that you have to at slowly on. You really have to act fast, unless you life is at risk.
So is it true (in most cases) that acting quickly and instinctively is the best response to a crisis? But, are there times when an urgent situation requires a more careful consideration and a slower response? Yes, you need to act quickly in life threatening situations; and yes, sometimes it is best to act slower in some situations than need more careful and thorough thought.
