Thinking, Fast and Slow
PreviewTwo systems in our brain dictate our behavior: the conscious and the automatic, and these two systems are in perpetual competition against each other over which one will control your actions, behavior, and interactions with the world. Because of this internal struggle, errors in judgment, memory problems, poor decision-making, and altered perceptions result. In this Book you will learn how to override this two-system neural structure in order to affect favorable outcomes in business scenarios, financial transactions, negotiations and even everyday personal and intimate relationships.
