Today is like any other day for Mr. X. He plans to go to the office, meet a friend for lunch at noon and leave precisely at 5pm to get to yoga class. Then everything goes wrong. Traffic makes him late for work, his lunch date reschedules and he gets a flat tire on the way to class. With every unexpected turn, Mr. X grows increasingly more agitated. By the time he’s speeding down the freeway, he’s in a state of rage. He has entered a mindset of total reactivity, and woe betides the person who cuts him off.
