Yes the “force” of intent! Thanks Rick for expanding on the concept!

Think of this road rage incident I investigated:

Two cars “ battling’ for highway supremacy! One driver knifes a laser stare at the adverse driver in the next lane over! His face contorts in demonic fury shifting in nightmarish physiognomy as if by some slow motion of time- lapse photography! The adverse driver senses a malevolent, animalistic, primal rage; a scary thing to contemplate; the look conveys the subliminal message that the predatory “ beast” doesn’t care about anything, not your life, and not his!

The look is secondary to body/car language of a death duel on the highway! It sinks into the medulla oblongata of the recipient telling him that if he engages his “stare” he better be ready to stand his ground and back it up with his life!

As the eyes connect, the less” forceful “ driver’s eyes widen for an instant without conscious thought; he then breaks contact, looks down, looks away! There is no mistake as to what he now displays in the rear view mirror for all to see_--_WIDE EYED FEAR!

Now he is prey! The “interview” is a success; exhibiting a perverse “ emotional skill” the aggressor relishes the intimidation and consumes the “ battering” of the chosen victim; he rams the left front of his car into the right rear fender of his victim’s vehicle, catapulting the same down the embankment!

The cold fury of dark intent reflects an ominous lack of empathy, and as “the anger mounts, the anomaly emerges: the heart rate drops, instead of climbing higher as in a calculated act of terrorism! A total lack of compassion for the perceived enemy!
Sensei Campbell and I had quite a discussion about this at camp!

“ Intentionality” defined: “ The wish and capacity to have an impact, and to act upon that with persistence. This is related to a sense of competence, of being effective” {Goleman}

A determination to “ overcome” __ to destroy__ and Not “ to stop” the other guy! {Walt Rauch}

“ When facing a threat, think of the aggressor already dead; a corpse who just happens to be erect. He; not you determines his fate, a way to transfer the responsibility to the opponent; a fresh way of approaching an old problem! {Rauch}

Please refer to Lori's forum where her comments to the topic were shifted to as the questions were more appropriate to the female gender!

Feel free to continue with any riposte to the dark force of intent!

In New Orleans, where I onced lived, I think the incidence of road rage must be rare. Drivers, and others, place handguns on top of their dashboards in plain view for all to see, a little chilling when you cross intersections walking to work but excellent persuaders of the highest calibre!

Driving with Tennessee plates in New Hampshire attracts those looking for trouble on the highway, esp. between the state line and up and through Nashua - a lot. After NH plates never an incident.
