Blink and Think

A tip of the hat to one of my favorite regular reads (ENL blog) for information (including link to article ) on the benefits of a reflective cognitive style to human performance.

Think Slow: Some Benefits of Cognitive Reflection (click here)

The gist of their post, and subsequent article resources, are consistent with the book Think (that I just finished reading.) Think is a book that is largely a response to the highly visible best selling book Blink. To simplify the value of each book, think of the following cognitive psychology analogy.
  • Think is to deliberate/controlled cognitive processing as Blink is to automatic cognitive processing.
I like to think of the books as complimentary popular press attempts to explain the controlled/automatic cognitive processing dichotomy in cognitive information processing models.
