Blink... the power of thinking without thinking!

Blink by the author of The Tipping Point. Malcolm Gladwell. Great book. Borrow it or buy it. Just get it. It's good. It gives excellent examples and insights on the power of thinking without thinking. I'm not a military freak but boy, military folks know a thing or two about strategy, sticking to a plan and instinct. It also talks about "prejudging is the kiss of death". True. He also refers to the "giant computer" that is our unconscious. It crunches all the data. It looks at all our experiences, people we know, lessons we've learn, etc. that helps us instantly form an opinion. Yup. Been there. Done that. Won't get burned twice. It's like our unconscious attitudes may be incompatible with our stated conscious values. Things that make you go "hmmmmmm". Georgia Mouka
