I sent this word to a friend twice yesterday as I saw a video he had sent. The video was of a person refusing to get out of Uber car when instructed by the driver, who felt that he was being scammed.

I have always been interested in human behaviour. I could spend hours reading and learning more about human behaviour.

What do you do when you are no longer in control of the environment you are in? The example above was the Uber drivers car. It could be your workplace, a meeting you are part of or at a party. How do you deal with the situation? Do you walk away, confront or stay silent?

Depending on the kind of person you are, your reaction to the situation would vary. Likewise, depending on the place you are at, the response to the problem would vary. After a few years of being in cases like this, I would recommend dealing with the situation the way the driver did. Stay calm and walk away. It’s seldom worth going the other way of being angry and getting into an argument/fight.
