Hysterical Reactions Undermine Rationality

When a young child trips or hits their head, they immediately look to the nearest trusted adult for a reaction, which they mirror as appropriate to their situation, regardless of the magnitude of injury. When the adult remains calm, the child does the same; when the adult reacts by indicating terror, the child respond by screaming hysterically.

We can stop adult hysterics with basic stoicism that doesn't inflate the trivial into an imaginary crisis. Hysterical people need to be immobilized and trained to become as calm, thoughtful, and considerate as their instincts allow.

Reacting wildly is a horrific weakness and destabilizer, not a virtue.
