Consciously Analysing Risk

We human beings are terrible at risk analysis if we let our sub-conscious mind do it. Take the example of public speaking. Most of us are terrified that we’ll make a fool of ourselves except what really makes a bad impression on stage is being nervous. If we are able to ignore our sub-conscious mind’s flawed risk analysis and instead consciously analyse the risk of the critical situations we find ourselves in then we should be able to come up with better approximations to the real world.
