Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within. Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant-in the blink of an eye-that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error?
The central focus of this book revolves around how we cognize the world around us, how we thin-slice i. The major contribution of this book comes around when Gladwell introduces us to our massive internal computer—the one that decides for us when we are unable to consciously and further on, how emotions play a huge, titanic role in our cognitions!
Actually, that would be one of the most intriguing parts of this book. BLINK is about human rapid cognition, a thinking that is a lot faster than we can realize it, and a thinking that operates quite mysteriously in comparison to our commonly used careful, planned, and thoughtful decision making.
And that's the major hypothesis in this book. Along with this variable, through his extensive research and analysis, Gladwell introduces several other variables that are interdependent with rapid cognition—such as emotions, attitude, judgments, snap decisions, role of time, frugality of information, and role of past experiences in perception.
This gigantic compilation, which seems exhaustive at one point, did after all do justice to the nature of the topic. I doubt there could have been a more involving way of putting across something that we can hardly decipher straightaway—the power of thinking without thinking! For a sneak-peak, among the several answers Gladwell resolves through this book is one of the reasons why relationships fail, or rather what is it that indicates the downfall of a perfect-looking relationship.
And as he unveils the shockers, you realize that so many times, we don't realize that we unknowingly give out non-verbal cues—and that is who we really are not who we claim to be we are. This is where he presents to the reader the art of thin-slicing: making a judgment of the whole scenario from just a gist. Thereon, Gladwell continues to provide innumerable such examples of thin-slicing in contexts such as speed-dating, tennis, gambling, military war games, malpractice suits, popular music, etc.
The argument is how the unconscious thought overpowers a logically-thought decision and proves beneficial. Gladwell explains that when we are thin-slicing or making our snap judgment, we've got a locked door i.
It takes you in for a run when you read that snap decisions or split second decisions can take you astray. Gladwell deeply elaborates why and where can our mindreading abilities fail. He then spins your attention to the ability of problem solving—which involves a great deal of decision making.
Some problem solving requires a flash of insight while some logic based-ones require explanations. However, trying to reflect or explain insightful problem solving can actually undermine the ability to insight!
Dijksterhuis in his recent research supported this possibility by reporting evidence that unconscious thinkers may make better decisions than conscious thinkers. On a third paradigm, Payne et al. Recently, these research points were criticized as possibly overrating the contribution of strictly unconscious processes to behavioral control Newell and Shanks, While Gigerenzer and Dijksterhuis evince reasoning to be either conscious or unconscious, Gladwell demonstrates them as a process wherein the unconscious thought dominates for the first 2 s.
