Plainview, NY, July 19, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- In a quick paced interview on July 17, Psychologist, Dr. Karen Sherman, spoke with Michael Patrick Shiels about stress. When stress occurs, most people aren't able to think clearly. Dr. Sherman said "It's as if they function on auto-pilot because emotions override clear thinking."
Lots of examples were offered where individuals make poor choices: following a GPS system that leads them into trouble or making risky decisions even though the consequences are negative. Dr. Sherman suggested that in some cases, people are risk takers and there might also be brain chemistry set off.
The interview also touched on relationships a bit as Sherman is a relationships expert. She suggested the need for couples to focus more energy on learning how to have a good partnership and less on planning the wedding day.
