It's called Intertemporal Discounting or Delayed Reward Discounting. Important in social psychology and applied psychology.
Or even the inevitably catastrophic.
true. short term memory is a survival mechanism.
It's interesting how we have the self-awareness to recognize some issues as "potentially catastrophic" but yet still find more anxiety at how you're going to get to a gas station when your car is almost empty.
I recognize it's a survival mechanism, but it's an old one that I don't think is really all that useful anymore.
Its the same for car repairs, changing a $14 cv boot when its needed, or wait till its been split for a year n buy a $400 cv n shaft
We're intelligent animals. But we're still animals. Evolution prepared us to tackle the more immediate problems that affect our individual survival and reproduction, not globally catastrophic future issues.
This is called cunningness, worry is normally a waste of imagination, that could be used to solve today's problems, rather than tomorrow's collapse.
To make sure no one gets the wrong impression, I'm not making a statement on "smh society today" although I can see where that vibe may come off.
