Perhaps you have walked down a dark street late one night and suddenly found yourself being followed by a strange man. You start wondering what he wants money or worse. You want to get out of the situation as quickly as possible so you begin to walk faster. So does he. Suddenly he grabs your shoulder. What do you do? Most likely you would be unable to do anything because you are not used to coping with this kind of situation.
