Summary:

In “Thinking, Fast and Slow”, Kahneman will lead us to experience an ultimate journey of thinking. He believes that our brain has two ways to make decisions, fast and slow. The commonly used unconscious “System 1” relies on emotion, memory and experience to make judgments quickly. It is well-informed and enables us to respond quickly to the situation in front of us. However, System 1 is also easy to be fooled. It sticks to the principle of “seeing is fact”, allowing illusions such as loss aversion and optimism bias to guide us to make wrong choices. The conscious “System 2” analyzes and solves problems by mobilizing attention and makes decisions. It is slow and not easy to make mistakes, but it is lazy and often takes shortcuts to directly adopt the intuitive judgment results of System 1.

Daniel Kahneman, emeritus professor of psychology at Eugene Higgins at Princeton University, emeritus professor at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton Kahneman won the Nobel Prize in Economics in 2002 for his first research with Amos Twisky on decision-making.
