" Gerd Gigerenzer in his book Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious attempts to answer the question on how intuition works but more importantly when you should trust your gut instincts and when they are just plain wrong. He consider the neural processes that has let mankind develop “rules of thumb” or “heuristics” to better make decisions. Which heuristics help us make better decisions about amateurs beating the stock-market, catching a fly ball, or choose a lover?
What Gerd Gigerenzer provides is the science and theory which underpins that absolute must read blink book by Malcolm Gladwell.In Gigerenzer Gut Feelings he highlights a key point that instinctual decisions are not impulsive but have brain based rules, that although seemingly simple are surprising accurate. Recent research that has come to light has supported his findings that reason may not be the best decision making tool, but reason should instead be used to check whether we have made the correct intuitive decision.
Gigerenzer has trained U.S. federal judges, German physicians, and top managers in decision making and understanding risks and uncertainties.
