The links between how you think and what you think

Daniel Kahneman’s newly released book ‘Thinking, Fast and Slow’ unpacks two modes of thinking – system 1 and system 2. System 1 is super fast, instinctive and we have little control over it – which leads us to make choices on factors we are unaware of, which in turn may cause problems. System 2 is the mode we use when we stop and consciously take time to think things through slowly and thoroughly. The concepts remind us to consciously think about how we think -and the processes we use in decision making.
