Our 'ancestral Instinct', Is badly outdated and has gone crazy in a society where we have more neurological stressors than ever before. The fight or flight instinct works off the senses and triggers adrenaline and other stress hormones, such as Cortisol, when it feels that danger is imminent. In theory this seems fine, it prepares us for a life or death battles with contemporary aggressors. In reality though this is not the case because our senses are constantly being attacked by stimuli that 'might' be aggressive but most often are not.
The instinct to run as opposed to fight, as stated earlier, is deeply imbedded in our genes and goes back to mammalian ancestry. Our Instinct In that dangerous age was sharply honed for survival at any cost, this usually meant fleeing from wild animals that wanted to eat us and were to big/dangerous to fight against. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending upon your views), these instincts are still with us, though we have lost our understanding of them somewhat. If we flee from potential danger in this age, especially the male of the species, we feel -or we are made to feel -like cowards.
These soldiers are generally classed by society as sociopaths, people that have no problem killing others of the same species. This is similar to the way the immune system sends out killer T -cells to kill cancerous or viral cells entering the body. The other 95% of cells in the body are not designed to kill, instead they are designed to help sustain life. What the 95% Rule tells us, is that in violent conflicts of a self-defence nature (eg. street fights), 95% of the people are going to react in exactly the same way.
