When you walk into a car dealership and a sales person walks towards you, you can feel a change take place in your body.
There’s some kind of chemical adjustment happening in your brain. You feel a sudden tension in your muscles. Not relaxed at all.
You feel ready to fight. Or at least, to negotiate.
This is a little weird. It’s not like you’re walking down a dark alley at night, twitching at every sound, preparing to fight or run for your life.
But the symptoms are the same, even if not quite as elevated.
