Do you know what happens with these stare downs? AN ENERGY BURST! There is no way you can straighten up and stare your opponent in the eye and not get hyped up! If you try this experiment, you will notice the quicker recovery time as well… because the body is posturing itself in a way that the mind associates with feeling ready to fight.
This would be interesting to test.
