Slow Thinking vs. Fast Thinking: Learn How Your Brain Works in Under 5 Minutes

I stumbled across this video the other day and couldn’t resist sharing it. In under 5 minutes, the video gives you a fun, energetic, and engaging overview of the brain’s two thinking systems: the fast, or instinctual system, and the slow, or purposeful system. Learn how these two kinds of thinking systems work together and separately to help you navigate the world- and how they can trick you from time to time.

This video is a summary of a book by Daniel Kahneman called Thinking Fast and Slow, which you can find at Amazon.

And if you love brain teasers and tricks, we have a library of them right here.

    Excellent little video. While I was watching it I started thinking that fast and slow thinking are used when reading. Fluent readers use fast thinking and beginning readers or functionally illiterate readers use slow thinking. Moving children from slow thinking to fast thinking is the great task of reading instruction.
