RupeeRoundhouse Posted February 27 Report Share Posted February 27 Thought experiment: Someone offers you $5 for every second you keep your hand on a stove. You agree and the stove gradually heats up. At what point do you decide to remove your hand? Real-world example: You want to socialize with a group of industry peers for networking purposes. The intensity of social anxiety is initially dim enough to tolerate but it gradually ramps up. At some point, the intensity is overwhelming and you withdraw from the group. Implications: (A) Can responsibility be absolved if emotions are too intense? (B) Are we dealing with borderline cases and/or is there a principle I'm overlooking or am not aware of?
