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

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.)

I think it's just the brain stem telling us what to do. It's like the fight or flight thing, IMO.

I have noticed on occasion that there is a bowing of the heads when two men approach each other. Not an act of submission but rather a statement that there is no intention of fighting.
