How we Think
Do you want to change the way you think? If yes then read this article carefully. It's framed based on the book- Thinking Fast and Slow, written by Daniel Kahneman, winner of the Nobel Prize.
There are two systems derived on the basis of how we think. System 1 operates automatically and quickly, with little or no effort and no sense of voluntary control. While system 2 allocates attention to the forceful mental abilities that demands complex computations depending upon agency, choice and concentration.
Here are some glimpse of how we these both systems work.
System 2 has a natural speed. It doesn't allow us to involve in multiple activities. System 2 monitor and control thoughts and actions suggested by system 1.
When we think, we think with the help of associations. For us words never make sense, the coherence always come from our mind.
When we meet somebody second time and then repeatedly, gradually we attain familiarity, truthfulness, goodness and giving lesser efforts. But if the first impression is wrong then achieving it becomes an exceptional task.
Our mode of happiness is inversely proportional to rational thinking of us. When we are in happy mood, system 2 becomes weak and at that particular point of time we need to be extra careful.
System 1 acts as an agent that work on some traits, preferences and associations while system 2 gets the work done. To believe we all need a casual story or a reference point which is the natural tendency of our mind.
When the situation is unfamiliar, stakes are high and there is no time to collect information, in such cases we tend to make intuition errors. So, it is advisable to take more information before you decide or jump to conclusion.
Many a times, out of excitement and being impressed we like all the things about a person without considering unobserved things. Always remain in stable state of mind. Control your ups and downs compulsorily.
When we can't solve a problem we immediately look for an easier one to solve. It's the point where most of the people swayed from the power of intelligence. Never give up and work on your weaknesses.
We believe in numbers, facts, examples more than just an appealing story. It's a good habit, but it's great if you can go for big numbers rather than small number of samples. Put more effort and be calculative.
Risk is very natural thing, it has nothing to do with our minds and culture. One can take risk if he has capacity to deal with dangers and uncertainties.
In most of the cases we miss out on detailing part or a crucial one. We are good at managing it but we certainly lack perfection and that's how regression occupies place in our thought process.
