DescriptionPaul LaFountaine is a member of the Quantified Self community and has expertise in tracking and making sense of heart rate variability. In this guest post, he shares his study of the workplace "freeze" response phenomenon. This can occur when our minds go blank after we receive a stern look from the "Big Boss" in meetings. His hypothesis is that "control of physiological reactions in meetings could make [us] more effective negotiator[s]".
