Recommendation of the month
Thinking, fast and slow. Daniel Kahneman.
I don’t know why, when I talk about this book, I never remember whether the “fast” or the “slow” comes first and I always end up talking about “Kahneman’s book”. Misteries of my systems 1 and 2. In this book, psychologist Daniel Kahneman reveals how the intuitive and emotional system (1) and the logical and rational system (2) are interconnected in our day to day and how this relationship manifests itself in our lives.
Concepts such as ego depletion or perspective theory make us look at ourselves and others in a different way and gain a new understanding of our brain’s behaviour. Thinking, fast and slow also brings us clarity by describing in detail the functioning of all kinds of tools and resources used with the intention of persuading our brain to provoke a certain action.
At a time when we are more exposed than ever to impacts, it never hurts to understand what those impacts are intended to trigger (and whether or not to allow it, of course).
