Anonymous: Human conditioning

“As people perform riskier and riskier activities, their level of risk tolerance goes up. This human conditioning can work for us very well when we need to
become adapted to a new environment, but when it comes to controlling risk in a system, this can lead us astray. If a sabre-toothed tiger has moved into the neighborhood and you still have to leave your cave each day to hunt, the ability to adapt to the new risk in your life is critical to your survival. Otherwise, you might stay in your cave all day and starve.”
