In this episode, we discuss the phenomenon known as auditory exclusion (going deaf under stress) and I explain how it happens and how it can impact situational awareness and decision making.
Length: 35 minutes
A person suffering from auditory exclusion will experience temporary hearing loss. While it is most often identified and associated with individuals who are working in high stress environments, the truth is it can happen to any of us at any time.
We will discuss how it happens and how it impacts situational awareness.
