So we know this, that one of the instincual responses is to freeze. Are you suggesting we should accept our lot in life and just freeze and bear our necks to the "Wolf"?
I am advocating a different way, just the way we teach about condoms, sex, drugs, etc, why could we not teach ourselves not to freeze.
If the situation was one where fighting or fleeing would more likely result in your death, you too would freeze. This is not a conscious decision. It is a survival instinct. Whether one is actually killed is irrelevant. One does not react to an outcome, since that outcome has not occurred, yet.
As you describe it it surely is a conscious decision. You made the "more likley" comment, indicating indeed in your scenario, one chose to freeze because they thought it more likley to move would cause death.
You are wrong. A moving target is a much harder object to hit than a stationary one .
Tell those 17 total shot, how they made the "safer" decision.
