Response vs. Reaction

What is the difference between response and reaction? Reaction is largely instinctive and, as such, may be generated by internal factors. Action against some perceived prompt which may or may not be accurate. But, because time is not part of the process, there is no opportunity to check.

Response, on the other hand, is a cognitive function, an answer to information that has been digested and considered. So, it is delayed action or even no action.

Instinct-driven people react and, because they have no sense of time, their reaction may be out of order. Instinct-driven people do not understand that a sense of time resides at the core of the Constitution. Regular order. Is that a redundancy?
