* Anecdotal accounts aside, there have been actual experiments that show people are able to perceive and process information at a faster rate when stressed. Indeed, this is the entire point of adrenaline; it increases the athletic and possibly mental abilities of the person, making their blood move faster to get the oxygen quicker, lesser pain response etc. People who are in a constant state of this (such as people with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) will have trouble sleeping, digesting food, have lesser responses to pain, complications with high blood pressure (up to and including heart disease), and in general act very nervous all the time.
