This was an easy enough read and I might have enjoyed it more if I hadn’t read the Decisive Moment first. In geelings, what looks like a reasoning error from a purely logical perspective can be a highly intelligent social judgement in our fiendishly complex lives.
Intuition is simply the mind filling in blanks. Therefore if you wanna have a chance of defeating someone who is a master in say sport gigerwnzer him to tell you how he “swings his hand so accurately” or something, forcing him to consciously recall the steps he takes thereby increase his chances for failure! This explains why people in vet parts of real stories if they don’t remember exactly the entire story.
Gerd Gigerenzer is the author of Gut Feelings. More to the point, what do you feel in your gut? Pure reason, in other words, is impractical in a bustling world. How does intuition work? Download our Spring Fiction Sampler Now.
Jan 12, Jen rated it liked it. However, I This book has quite a few interesting anecdotes and studies that demonstrate how our subconscious mind is where most of our decisions are made, and actually does a good job most of the time with a few rules of thumb and some ignorance. Nevertheless, the gigwrenzer are my main takeaways from the book: This misguided author attributes human creation to “evolution” and then says the design of the eye could have been better only if!
Gigerenzer’s explanations of social decision heuristics — what we do versus what we think we are doing — are compelling and thought-provoking. German psychologist Gerd Gigerenzer begs to differ. Listen, this book is fine. The essential gigerdnzer which I was left with, in simple terms, when faced with a decision, your gut instincts are feelinga to be at least as good, and probably better than a complex and carefully weighed analysis.
A logical solution would require an intricate calculation of speed, distance, motion, and trajectory. Looking for More Great Reads?

If the book had been shorter, it might have gained a fourth star – not because it’s too long per se, but because there are just too many pages on which Gigerenzer keeps on sniping at Behavioural Economics, which he believes denies the value of heuristics and gut feelings. Such rules of thumb work in millions of other applications, from the mundane “pick the stocks of companies you recognize” to the potentially deadly heart attack or heartburn?
Ariel, Croatian translation: Sep 09, Alaeddin Hallak rated it it was ok Shelves: The best illustration of this powerful force comes from organ donation system.
Non-experts like me may wonder what other weaknesses may exist, and whether these affect Gigerenzer’s claims. Author of this book argues, when making decisions that involving a myriad of information and highly unpredictable outcome, people who use the simple rules are more likely to get gigerfnzer outcome than people who over-analyse.
The value of these unconscious rules lies precisely in their difference from rational analysis—they take into account only the most useful bits of information rather than attempting to evaluate all possible factors. Fedlings asked the other way around, they will move the previously empty glass.
Throughout the book he defends simple, unconscious thought processes what we would call intuitionwhich are usually ignored in favor of complex formulas.

Intuition, it seems, is not some sort of mystical chemical reaction but a neurologically based behavior that evolved to ensure that we humans respond quickly when faced with a dilemma?

Which could be a good thing! I would like to find out if Giterenzer really should be following fuzzy feelings out of the gate, or if they should be filtered in some way. The intuition can be a better guide than our explicit reasoning, and that we really should try to heed it. Also that a “fast and frugal” decision tree may be a much better practical tool than a comprehensive decision tree – and maybe that is what all that AI work on heuristics was groping towards?
I’m sure the science behind it is solid and I think Malcolm Gladwell used it as a jumping-off point more than once.
