Very important to know as we all have our "mental constructs"!

Kahneman on Well-Being and Domains of Consciousness

Kahneman on Well-Being and Domains of Consciousness | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
A Nobel Winning Psychologist


From the vantage point of the unified theory, there is much to like and only a little to critique regarding Kahneman's work. He is a brilliant experimentalist (I believe he is the only psychologist who has won a Nobel prize-let me know if you know of another) and his studies led to a whole field of behavioral (psychological?) economics. His work on the two mental systems, System 1 and System 2 and their corollaries in consciousness (experiential and reflective/remembering) is directly congruent with the model of cognition advocated for in the unified theory. (Behavioral Investment Theory provides the theoretical frame for System 1, and the Justification Hypothesis for System 2).

Kahneman's work indirectly suggests that educators can improve student approaches to problem solving and decision making and as a result improve resilience. If we can overcome some of the destructive habits of the mind on "cruise control", we may improve our outcomes.


from the article:

"Kahneman makes three key points in this talk (TEDtalk, where he explains how the two domains of human consciousness differ quite dramatically in what it means to be happy TEDx). The first point, which is somewhat subtle in that he only briefly alludes to it, is that happiness is a complicated construct and that there has been a shift away from this term, as it has been found not to capture the essence of what researchers are interested in. 

The second key point that Kahneman makes is that humans are of two minds, what he refers to in this talk as the experiencing and remembering selves. 

The third key point was how the experiencing self and the remembering self evaluate situations differently."

Happiness is important to the way we live and our potential success.
