Based on extensive research and experience, Jacob More points out in his course Decision Making Under Stress that in stressful times (as when making tough calls) we are not at our best when it comes to making decisions. The level of stress that we experience is obviously relative to influencing factors such as our personality, experiences, and circumstances.

PR: In 2014, I saw this listing [to act in the background of a scene] on The Daily Show. It was on a segment that Jessica [then a correspondent on the show] was doing about Black women’s hair in the military. We met and hit it off. I asked her to be a guest on my podcast in my rinky-dink one-bedroom apartment that had a mold issue. [When we were taping the podcast] she said she wanted to try stand-up.
