25iQuiz: What phenomena in the news today fit with this sentence:

"Especially when the outcome of a nonlinear change is negative, tendencies like loss aversion can kick in and people can have a strong tendency to react in highly emotional ways."  https://www.google.com/amp/s/25iq.com/2017/01/13/why-is-it-so-hard-to-forecast-the-future/amp/ 

2/ "Our intuition about the future is linear because that's the way the world worked for most of history. Prey animals did not get exponentially faster for example.” Except for a virus or bacterial infection multiplying inside your body, few things in ordinary life are nonlinear.

3/ "When change is inevitable and gaining speed, a person’s ability to adapt to the environment based on what they see in the present is far more useful than trying predict the future." Investors like @mattcohler want to deeply understand the present. See  http://investorfieldguide.com/chetan/
