Kahneman (2011) apparently suggests there is system 1 and system 2 in decision making.
- If I am not wrong he says system 1 is more prone to errors because it is automatic. Is this correct assumption of mine?
If yes, next question I have is: Is system1 related to unconcious? If yes, then isn't there a conflict between above assumption and this one:
that unconscious thought (UT) is better at solving complex tasks, where many variables are considered, than conscious thought.
So if UT is related to System 1, then doesn't it contradict Kahnemans view that System 1 is more prone to errors (because if it is prone to errors according to Kahneman how is it better at decision making according to Wiki)? Needless to say there are articles which don't agree with wiki article I linked. This one for example: Acker (2008).
