Correct, adrenalin can lead to self-control. It used to be thought that adrenalin junkies had almost mild psychopathic tendencies, i.e an inability to think through the consequences of their actions, that's generally accepted as being false though, it is more the case that they know exactly what the risks are, but unlike most others they choose not to dwell on them, therefore they can concentrate more on the task at hand, that has the knock on effect of their adrenalin levels not peaking to high, and their heart rate not peaking as high as most others when in these situations that others would find stressful. I'm not sure if there is a correlation but it seems reasonable to conclude that adrenalin and self control are connected in situations that the person is aware is about to happen, rather then the shock/fog of fear adrenalin rush that can debilitate most people.
I would agree with that.
Never thought about it like that tbh, but it would work under the scenario I posted above...what would trigger it to sense events is anyone's guess though - and I guess that's really what you're trying to get ideas about in your original question?
That would make sense (in theory).
