Skeletal muscles have slow and fast twitch fibers that differ in their rate of fatigue. Is there an analogue in the subject of cognition?
For example I might be very quick at doing coding but very slow at arithmetic. Also I might be fast at a mental task but tire quickly. What is the study of this phenomenon called?
It was suggested to me in a comment that the phenomenon of
facilitation shows similar behavior.
Also mentioned in the comments is
system 1 "intuition" vs system 2 "calculation"
I would select it as an answer if it wasn't a comment.
