Decision Time: Why Do Some Leaders Leave A Mark? | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

Book shows intuition isn't everything in making good decisions

Book shows intuition isn't everything in making good decisions | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

We like to think of ourselves as rational beings, capable of making objective decisions about life. The truth, says Daniel Kahneman, is that we have some faulty wiring in our ability to make judgments and choices.

 

We human beings aren’t as smart as we think we are. We aren’t as rational as we would like to believe we are. Furthermore, we are too confident in our own abilities and we put too much faith in our intuition.

 

Ask author Daniel Kahneman, and he should know. He has devoted his entire life to figuring out what makes us act the way we do, and make the decisions we make.
