Of all the areas of human activity we can possibly contemplate the one where everything comes together in extreme settings is war. The life-or-death scenarios, the multitude of unpredictable, uncontrollable factors that are encountered which need to be overcome and the necessity to create positive outcomes in impossibly hostile conditions, create a petri dish where we can examine how the brain and mind learn to perform under pressure.
In writing The Sniper Mind: Eliminate Fear, Deal with Uncertainty, and Make Better Decisions I delved deep into cutting-edge neuroscientific research and interviewed hundreds of serving and retired snipers. I looked at some specific sniper stories, analyzing some of the elements to see the challenges that the sniper was facing and then looked at the outcome and the sniper’s performance.
