Blindness to our biases

Behavioural economist Daniel Kahneman’s book Thinking, Fast and Slow was published in 2011, and in this video clip he explains the difference between thinking fast and intuitively (System 1), and a more slow and reasoned approach (System 2). Cognitive biases and prejudices are inevitable and part of the snap judgments of System 1, but by using deeper System 2 thinking we can challenge those prejudices and rebuild our stereotypes. Kahneman’s thoughtful theories are bound to prompt System 2 in those who watch this video. (quote is from this post from psychcentral)

That quote was actually explaining this video from the Guardian, but I cannot embed it so I embedded another I found on youtube.

The video at the Guardian is worth listening to…I just know so many of my readers often don’t click on links!!

If you’re interested in his book go here: Thinking, Fast and Slow
