Why Are We So Triggered?

The amygdala is a primitive component of the brain responsible for processing emotions that directly influence our behavior. It’s impulsive, angry, racist, sexist, judgmental, deceitful and revengeful. It takes action without our consent and is triggered at even the smallest inconvenience. Detecting the race of person takes 200ms whilst the gender is detected at 150ms and this is all done unconsciously without our awareness.
