Flight and fight at the Four-Way stop

March 27, 2022

Let’s use the analogy of a Four-Way stop. If you are a woman that stopped at a Four-Way stop and a man stopped their car after you have stopped yours, but then decided to drive off before you, do you then conclude in your mind “Typical male. He noticed I was female and then decided to disrespect me?”

Does the same thing happen when the other driver is black or white or drives a BMW or Audi?

Did it ever occur to you that the other driver might not be someone who is rude and disrespectful or they might be rushing to a life threatening situation? 

“Give others the benefit of the doubt, just like you would like to be given one.”
