These graphics talk about delayed reactions.


The response may move from predominantly old brain (thalamus) Fight / Flight to predominantly new brain (cortex) reasoned response.

(Predominantly new brain but incorporating old brain - thalmo-cortical)

And here is how modern (~2000 AD) research models our fast (signal) or more reasoned (symbol) reactions.

So to improve your reaction to the environment try to delay your reaction long enough for the information to take the symbol route.
