    Okay..Lots of great responses here. Tunnel Vision is not what most would like you to believe it is and you guys are spot on with some of it. It doesn't always mean that you are not locked on or out of control.

    Part 1: I will respond later to part 2.

    There is the Inverted U principle. Performance improves only to a certain point with arousal (and No Nichols, it isn''t that kind of performance and arousal). The inverted U (A study by Yerkes and Dodson 1908) is what most are referencing when they talk about why someone does or does not experience something. This covers the physical response. As That Guy, HH60 and Yondering said, He thinks that after years of experiencing something they don't get jazzed about it.

    With this, There are 2 sides to the Inverted U. With practice and experience, The height of the "Inverted U" (peak of performance) starts moving more towards our optimal performance being at a higher arousal level. We are not in our best performance until a certain degree of arousal (IE: When we first start riding a Motorcycle 80 seems comfortable and we can function there perfectly. Then that gets boring so now 120 becomes the norm. 80 is a cake walk and we don't have the level of arousal needed to ensure optimized physical responses to road hazards. To point to the "color scheme" often purported we are in Orange vs. Red (where we perform optimally). We are still not up to 180 yet and don't have optimal performance because we the bike will react at 180 because we have not become accustomed to it or have experience with that speed on a regular basis. As our "normal everyday speed" starts creeping up our level of attentiveness drops because its boring. The inverted U cuts both ways. Why I start to nod off in my personal vehicle at the speed limit (when have the family in the car) because am used to driving well above the speed limit when in my patrol car.

    Within the Inverted U as well performance isn't just based on our physical performance. Cognitive performance/Reasoning is also affected. We only have so much RAM upstairs in the brain housing group. That severely affects how we respond. If we are conducting a low frequency/low practiced task then we will probably direct more RAM to it leaving less to be directed to other simultaneous problems. IE: We build up non-thinking automatic weapons handling procedures so that way we use a small amount of RAM to process that problem leaving the remainder to plan the battlefield. That is why we build and train with the mechanical operation of firearms to make it an automatic response so that it can be done on the fly without losing sight of the battlefield and the opponent or getting our OODA reset because of a weapon issue.

    The level of arousal is what stimulates the Sympathetic Nervous System that affects the body systems but it also has to do with the mental awareness as well. It also affects how well our motor nervous system responds and how accurately.

    Absolutely Yondering, This is human performance 101. It doesn't just hold true with deadly force encounters but all aspects of human performance.

    Funny that until Force Science showed up on scene no one applied this type of research to Force Incidents.

    Although I will say that SI and Gabe have been teaching the skills that capitalize on just what Ive been talking about in this thread. Gabe has been leading "Force Experiment" labs for quite some time and reverse engineering tactics. The Force Science is putting the human performance scientific research to work in this realm which really validates what Gabe and SI have been teaching in the RGF and CRG classes.

    Really this research applies in all aspects of life.

    Gonna revive this thread.

    I will have some more time to participate here because of some recent life changes...

    To start some discussion....

    Where does traditional range training fall within focus of attention:

    A. Internal narrow
    B. Internal wide
    C. External Narrow
    D. External Wide

    Why do you choose the answer you did?
