Choking versus Panicking

From Malcolm Gladwell’s 2000 essay on The Art of Failure.

Panic, in this sense, is the opposite of choking. Choking is about thinking too much. Panic is about thinking too little. Choking is about loss of instinct. Panic is reversion to instinct. They may look the same, but they are worlds apart.
