Most people think disruption is actually destruction … This causes them to immediately go into survival mode – the basic flight or fight response of the human. Therefore I can actually tell you I am going to disrupt you and the response will be the same as when I don’t tell you. The reality is, if I tell you I am going to disrupt you or even if I don’t tell you, the moment you sense the unknown you assume survival mode. This causes you to defend yourself physically or mentally. Mentally you will start defending the belief that you have about something, regardless of whether you know the subject well or even what the truth is regarding the subject.
