MM #12: Think With System 2

Mental Model #12: Think With System 2. We each have two systems of thought, courtesy of Daniel Kahneman: System 1 and System 2. System 1 focuses on speed and efficiency of thought, while System 2 focuses on accuracy and depth of thought. System 2 is smart, while System 1 is dumb. System 1 does more harm than good, but unfortunately, it is the one we default to because it is easier. Gain awareness of the difference between the two; acknowledge System 1, then try to jump immediately to System 2.
