Actually I find them in autopilot the most during times of panic and panic attacks.

My higher level brain functions are consumed with kicking myself being mad at myself oscillating through different forms of hindsight, well my poor autopilot is trying to keep the s*** from hitting the fan and usually makes it worse

Sometimes it can be EXTREMELY competent, on something it knows how to do as long as there are no curve balls.

Just like a Roomba vacuum, does the job extremely well until a dog poops on the floor, and the Roomba will just keep on doing what it's doing and spread the crap all over.

Autopilot cannot deal with surprises big higher level decisions or remember things
