"Have the presence of mind to" nghĩa là gì?

"Have the presence of mind to (do something)" nghĩa là có sự nhanh trí, nhạy bén và giữ được bình tĩnh.

Ví dụ
In the next play he has the presence of mind to strip (lấy bóng) Bam Adebayo after Bam comes down with the rebound and is unsighted (ngoài tầm nhìn) in terms of seeing where Trent is positioned.

Contact tracers (người truy lùng) may not have to come to my door here, in America, but I hope that if I do get called someday and am told that I was exposed to the virus, that after I get over the initial shock, I’ll have the presence of mind to say: “Thank you for all the work you’ve done to bring me this information. I’m happy to stay at home.”

If you are lucky to score, you are expected to step away again from the teammates (you've been quarantined a week with) to celebrate even though in the run-up to the goal you may have been just centimetres away from the very same players. It requires immense self-control (tự chủ) and presence of mind to control emotions in the moment of celebration.
