My analogy for System 1 & System 2: a... - Deepstash

My analogy for System 1 & System 2: a functional team (whether a sports team or a startup) where all members are equally young & inexperienced, but 1 has been nominated the leader. This person has to sometimes step out of their default, reactive behaviours and act like the grown-up in the room, but it takes conscious effort to do that. Those are the situations when System 2 gets involved.

Main cause of biased judgment

Your mind likes the feeling of coherence and sentiment of habit, of déjà-vu. 

From an evolutionnary point of view, Sapiens needs to have a construction of reality clear. 

  • Do you have to treat with this plant ? No, you recognize those red berries that causes flu.

D. Kahnemann calls this process the System 1. This is a cognitive agent which is trying to explain all of you hear, see and feel by a causal link.

A first way to improve your critical mind is to admit that chance, at least multiple causes make events happen. 

  • Explain that WW2 is caused by the madness of Hitler is simple, not accurate.

Our society is built on the premise that human beings are more or less rational. We trust that our leaders, judges, scientists, and other experts are making fair and unbiased decisions, and that we ourselves are seeing the world as it is and making the best choices we can.

If only that were true!
