Thinking about patience and decision making; both intuitive and analytical.
I · begins by discussing Porges, looking at his psychological studies into heart variability and mental stability. He claims that the greater your heart rate's flexibility (so, the quicker (in milliseconds) you can stabilise your heart rate after a sudden increase/decrease, especially as an infant, the more capable you'll become later in life. The vagal nerve (tenth cranial nerve/pneumogastric nerve) connects all of your vital organs to your brain; it is also the reactor, when a decision is made by the brain, neurons will travel super fast along these nerve fibers to the organs. (I.e. athsma attack, feinting, etc.) Also, psychiatric studies such as the two marshmallows from Stanford University.
II · Analysing and interviewing super fast sports (tennis, baseball, cricket) players, to determine the skill used at millisecond-level decision making. Findings show that we all (sportsmen, amateurs, and non-sporting people) have the same visual reaction speed (approx. 200ms) and that this is generally universal for human beings. However sports professionals at the very top level have trained their physical reactions to execute perfect manoeuvres much faster than the average human. So: SEE (generally 200ms for everyone), PREPARE (200ms – faster execution allows for more time here), EXECUTE (perfected at 100ms). Concluding: sporting experts essentially slow down this tie process – perfecting the SEE and EXECUTE parts and giving themselves more time (still in milliseconds) to identify, deliberate, and plan a response.
