Real Life Survival - Information

In any real life survival situation, information will play a vital part in your survival. Make sure you have all the necessary information that is available before making a decision.

The answer to yesterday's question is take the stairs. OK, I know I didn't give you all the necessary information that was available in this circumstance. The point is that your knowledge will affect your decision making but emotional responses can affect critical thinking, in this case it was the response of the mechanic that was working on the elevator.

Staying above the water line!

This has been an interesting question.In a situation where you have time to stop and anylyze the situation,you may come to a different decision than you would in a life threatening condition.If you came to a cliff trying to get to a safe area,do you climb down it,or take a long route to find a safe way down?If your being chased by a zombie biker horde,do you stand and fight,or jump?In my opinion,there is no RIGHT answer.

An emotional response will affect your critical thinking and all factors must be considered. In this particular instance, the decision was made for everyone by the sign which was placed outside the elevator. Unfortunately, in real life there aren't always signs that indicate our safest course of action.
