On today’s edition of Please Explain,
we’re looking at instinct, intuition, gut feelings, those unconscious reactions that guide so much of our decision making. We’re joined by Timothy Wilson,
Sherrell J. Aston Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia, and author of Strangers to Ourselves: Discovering the Adaptive Unconscious,
and by Gerd Gigerenzer,
director of the Max Planck Institute for Human Development in Berlin, and author of Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious.
