"the wiser tact" for "the wiser tack"

React or Respond?
There are times when the “fight or flight” reaction is useful. For example, if a car is careening down the street at you, pausing to ask a few questions about why the driver is speeding is unlikely to be your best strategy. Like our caveman, getting the hell out of its way is definitely the wiser tact.

They chose the wiser tact by going for a sure thing and an amount significantly below the judgment (56%).

The wiser tact would be to learn how each indicator works and use that information to build a unique trading system.

Sorry, I didn’t use the proper search mechanism before posting. I now see that the tack/tact confusion exists in the database.

Not to worry. The search engines on this forum can be tricky. Besides, it’s good to be reminded of some of these classics.
