Self-Awareness Skill Builder 1: Understand Your Brain

Your brain has three parts that work together like a team of advisors. The three parts are instinct, emotions, and logic. Their goal is to keep you safe and give you advice. Each advisor has a different set of skills. Sometimes they give you conflicting advice and sometimes they are silent. Your job is to learn how to hear all three advisors and make the best choices based on their combined input.

The best way to understand how the three advisors work is to see them in action in a real situation. Susan returned home alone after a late-night meeting. She pulled into the garage, got out of the car and walked around to go inside. A person in a ski mask jumped out of the bushes, ran over to her, pointed a gun in her face and said, “Gimme your purse.” How should Susan use her advisors to decide what to do?
