Introduction to Thinking, Fast and Slow
The psychologist and author Daniel Kahneman uses this audiobook to introduce to the listeners the two systems that drive the way we think.
The first system is faster, more intuitive, and emotional, mainly shaped based on our past experience.
The second one is slower, more logical, and more cautious.
He claims that understanding how these two systems shape our perceptions and decisions will lead to a general understanding of the smallest and the most significant events in our lives.
What is Thinking, Fast and Slow about?
In the audiobook, we can discover curious insights into how choices are made from personal and business perspectives. We can learn a lot about how to prevent certain mental malfunctions which bring us into trouble by using different techniques.
Sometimes, when you face a problem, the first system of your brain thinks it can solve it, while it can’t. That’s how you end up making a mistake.
Should I listen to Thinking, Fast and Slow audiobook?
Knowing the mechanisms of your thinking will help you improve your decision-making. The so-called fast thinking often leads to misjudgment and poor decisions, so we can’t always trust our intuition. We can find benefits in slower, more logical thinking, not based on emotions and past experience.
