Today’s Big Idea is the next in the series on ‘Thinking, Fast and Slow’ by Daniel Kahneman. In the book, he explores the way in which the mind makes decisions and judgments. He does this by addressing the complexity of the human mind. The book offers a better understanding of ‘how decisions are made’, ‘why certain judgment errors are so common’ and ‘how we can improve ourselves’.
In this video, we will focus on a principle which Kahneman labels ‘What You See Is All There Is’! For your ease of reference, it is introduced in Chapter 7; ‘A Machine for Jumping to Conclusions’
Often the combination of a coherence-seeking ‘System 1’ and a lazy ‘System 2‘ entails that ‘System 2’ endorses the intuitive beliefs of ‘System 1’ solely based on the principle of ‘What You See Is All There Is’! This is why humans can think fast and are able to make sense of partial information in a complex world.
And there you have it – the principle of ‘What You See Is All There Is’…
If you are not already familiar with the work of Kahneman we recommend that you check out our three other blog posts on ‘Thinking, Fast and Slow’. In the first, we focus on ‘System 1’ and ‘System 2’ , in the second, we focus on ‘Heuristics and Biases’ , and in the third, we focus on ‘The Halo Effect’.
