Isnt it just some animal instinct in us? I mean even before I did martial sports, everytime I see a guy coming towards me I think if i can take him out or not.
It might be, I've been in boxing/kickboxing since I was 12 so im not sure.

Same, I'm about 165 5'9" and I do the same thing. I'm very social so I don't often run into hostility.

This IS a animal instinct, I get this all the time, and I'm really just an amateur street fighter, when tough guys walk by me I begin thinking what they would throw first and how I would counter it, also the fastest the way to take them out if they are more than 2, not that they would attack me, I just do it without thinking
That longing to return to the retarded past can only be born of some collective, subconscious, internal desire to try to turn back the clock on humanity and halt our obvious progression towards the inevitable zombie apocalypse of 2012.
I've always been a psycho like that. I've always walked places alone and to this day I still involuntarily tense up if I'm walking by another guy. I imagine what I will do if they make a move, especially if there is a group of guys.
I guess it is natural to some people. I see it as survival instinct. (usually being under 150lbs myself, this will likely lead to me being seriously injured one day.)
