When I'm so tired

I found out today that when I'm very tired, I have a very short temper. And I also heard that the thinking part of our brain is six seconds delayed compared to the emotional part of our brain. This means that when we feel anger for example, we only begin to think and respond properly six seconds after we felt it. And it can spiral into reaction after reaction without realising it, which means our thinking and evaluation never kicks in at all.

I'm not sure if that is true, but I certainly must remind myself to wait and not react in emotions when I am tired.
