Depending on where you are on your self-defense and protection journey, you’re probably aware of Col. Jeff Cooper’s Awareness Color Chart and are living in condition yellow. To paraphrase Col. Cooper:
For example, someone in condition White will be walking down the street with headphones on, their face in their phone and could walk into someone/something because they’re not paying attention.
Someone in condition yellow has their head up and is continually looking around and aware of what others around them are doing.
Based on your personal experiences, what percentage of people walk around in condition white most of the time?
- less than 10% of people
- 11-25% of people
- 26-50% of people
- 51-75% of people
- greater than 75% of people
Please give examples of what you’ve seen people do.
Examples will help all of us see where we may slip into condition white from time to time.
