16 Things We Say After
We've Been 'Hijacked'

By Susan Dunn, MA Psychology, The EQ Coach

 "Hijacking" (aka "flooding") means your emotions have overtaken your ability to reason. The reptilian brain, designed to keep us alive, sends strong messages designed to stop us from thinking. If a wild animal was charging toward you, and you stopped to think, "Now what species is that?" you would be dead.

 The reptilian brain tells us to quit thinking and act (often on impulse or instinct), and in today's world, there are times when that's not in our best interest.

 When you do something when you've been hijacked, you'll find yourself saying:

 1. I'm sorry.

2. Yes, your honor.

3. I don't know what came over me.

4. The devil made me do it.

5. I must've been out of my mind.

6. But Teena, I promise you, it meant nothing, nothing at all.

7. I have absolutely no idea why I said that.

8. It seemed like a good idea at the time.

9. Never again.

10. When will I ever learn?

11. In retrospect .

12. I'm lucky to be alive.

13. I did what?

14. It wasn't me.

15. Woe is me.
