Help, a blackout!

There it was again, the situation I hate so much: an oral exam! Just do not go wrong, went through my head. Keep calm and concentrate. I can do it! If not everything, then the essentials. I can do it!

Already in the morning at breakfast I had this dull feeling in the belly. Shortly before the test came heat and sweating. In the test, nothing went wrong. I just could not remember. BLACKOUT! Everything was gone. No longer accessible. I wanted to disappear in the ground or just go out to the door. Away from here…

 Can not control logic?

What happened? Where does such a blackout come from? Why do I always have it and others never? Whats going on here? Nothing and everything! To start with: a blackout is a “normal” neurological reaction of the body in certain situations that are interpreted as (life-) threatening.

We are running a program that can not be mastered with logic: in the brain, the almond nucleus, also known as Amygdala, is a small part of our limbic system, which stoically insists on its use.

Alarm in the almond core

In it, all negative events and experiences of past times are stored and every new situation is evaluated for possible dangers. If a momentary situation has a similarity to a dangerous previous situation, the almond kernel becomes active to warn us, or if this is too late, to ensure our survival.

Lightning-fast, a situation is assessed unconsciously and, in the event of danger, a reaction process set in motion that we consciously can no longer control. We know this from the animal kingdom - when an animal is attacked by another, it has different ways to react:

  • It attacks on its part and it comes to the fight
  • It runs away
  • It stands dead

Senseless stress hormones

In the animal world this does Sense, but as a human being in exams? This doesn't make sense at first glance, but it explains itself once you understand the mechanism behind it:

It is not about the situation as such, it is about the release of stress hormones and the intensity of negative emotions that occur in a particular situation.

If a large amount of stress hormones are released in a certain situation, this is considered a life-threatening aspect of our almond core, and considered as a reference for the following situations in which the reaction is always automatic Survival.

The good news: You can do something about it

This explains why many people have no reaction to negative experiences - they do not lead to stress; others always have a dull feeling, stomach pain, headache and the like, which sometimes leads to running away.

Still others a blackout, because the stress level in a previous situation was so high that the internal self-protection automatism starts immediately, even if the situation from the outside is relatively harmless.
