Thinking, Fast and Slow


People tend to assess the relative importance of issues by the ease with which they are retrieved from memory—and this is largely determined by the extent of coverage in the media.

The situation has provided a cue; this cue has given the expert access to information stored in memory, and the information provides the answer. Intuition is nothing more and nothing less than recognition.”

    Very deep. With the flow of information so constant and so heavy nowadays, it’s almost impossible to enable critical thinking when reading the news. Hell, with the advent of Twitter, for instance, journalism is getting reduced to skewed, incomplete headlines.
