    It's human behavior for those who really want to learn. With failure comes a drop in dopamine which pushes the driven to try harder.

    My first thought withing the first minute of the video was, this is why standardized testing and qual courses are such a bad idea. They encourage underperformance. Welp, I passed the test I'm good enough, no reason to train or practice anymore, I checked that box, next.

    Failure is an opportunity to learn.

      Training creates "habit patterns." I recall a shooting report from years ago; an IPSC competitor and cop got into a gun fight and raised his hands into an IPSC ready before he drew. Another report was a cop was picking up his empties during a firefight.

      Some habits are good and some are bad. Some training is better organized to be random, requiring the person to think and not "just react."
      The people think the Constitution protects their rights; But government sees it as an obstacle to be overcome.
      If your religion says suicide and murder are wrong; Aren't you doing both if you are not prepared to defend your life and the lives of others?
      I am not a lawyer, but I have personal opinions.

        Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these great and true principles~ Abe Lincoln

            At some agency, don't remember which but don't matter, their signal to fire during training/quals was a whistle. Two cops from that agency confronted a miscreant, who pulled a gun and was fixin' to shoot the younger cop. Younger cop stood there with his gun presented, and.....just stood there with his gun presented. Older cop shot the bad guy, later questioned the younger cop why he didn't shoot. Younger cop said he was waiting for the whistle. I seem to remember that agency changed that part of their training. Seems this was in Kalifornia, but not sure and it don't matter.
