Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by
Call Number: BF448 .G53 2005
How do we think without thinking, seem to make choices 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? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others?
This work has implications for business communicators and job seekers as they realize first impressions and nonverbal signals do make a difference. Research into neuroscience and psychology are incorporated into this readable resource to support the authors conclusions. Note especially chapter 1 on "thin slicing."
