Thinking, Fast and Slow (Blinkist Summary)

You have two ways to react: instantaneous reactions and plans. This audio-only course shows you various ways that your mind works. Learn how you can steer clear of errors and improve your intelligence by not letting your brain slip into laziness. Learn about how you are not always in control of your thoughts and biases and how the halo effect and confirmation bias can influence decisions. Find out how your brain uses mental heuristics and why statistics can be so difficult to understand. Discover the differences between the experiencing self and the remembering self, as well as ways to reduce cognitive strain and take chances. Learn about utility theory, gut feelings, and how to overcome your natural overconfidence in your mental imagery.
