Let me second your statement.

  Hello Skipper,

  I have no data to support or to refute your assertion, but I must be an 
  exception. Since I received performance training, I use two fingers to 
  brake. Yet every time I have been surprised and had to grab and handful of 
  brake, I use four fingers. I speculate that my "instinct" is to grab the 
  brake lever with full force, while my consciously "decided action" in a 
  non-emergency braking situation is to use two fingers.
