Daniel Kahneman: Thinking, Fast and Slow | Talks at Google
@Google Talks is proud to welcome hero of psychology, Daniel Kahneman.
Daniel Kahneman, recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences for his seminal work in psychology that challenged the rational model of judgment and decision making, is one of our most important thinkers. His ideas have had a profound and widely regarded impact on many fields—including economics, medicine, and politics—but until now, he has never brought together his many years of research and thinking in one book.
In the highly anticipated Thinking, Fast and Slow, Kahneman takes us on a groundbreaking tour of the mind and explains the two systems that drive the way we think. System 1 is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System 2 is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. Kahneman exposes the extraordinary capabilities—and also the faults and biases—of fast thinking, and reveals the pervasive influence of intuitive impressions on our thoughts and behavior. The impact of loss aversion and overconfidence on corporate strategies, the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, the challenges of properly framing risks at work and at home, the profound effect of cognitive biases on everything from playing the stock market to planning the next vacation—each of these can be understood only by knowing how the two systems work together to shape our judgments and decisions.
Engaging the reader in a lively conversation about how we think, Kahneman reveals where we can and cannot trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. He offers practical and enlightening insights into how choices are made in both our business and our personal lives—and how we can use different techniques to guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble. Thinking, Fast and Slow will transform the way you think about thinking.

Speed IQ Test: Think fast!!!
This great speed IQ test uses music from:

Obviously this is not an IQ test :) BUT it is hilarious that most people (and with that I literally mean 90%) fail at this test. So what happens is that the questions initially put your mind onto something white and then you have to immediately think of milk when the cow question comes up. So that combined with the speed of your thinking means that you get the answer wrong! haha So it is similar to a trick questions. Here is the text written out:
#1 SPEED IQ TEST
See if YOU can do it, and then TRY IT on your FRIENDS!
(Only 10% get this right!!!)
Try to answer these questions as fast as you can:
What color does paper normally have?
What color does salt normally have?
What color is the inside of the square:
What do cows normally drink?
Milk --- Incorrect!!
LOLThink about it... Surely cows drink WATER, right?
Only 10% get this right... ...did YOU get it right?
Send this to your friends!
I hope you enjoy it! Let me know if it worked or whether you are one of the special people that passes this speed IQ test :) Best wishes, DB

You’re going to spend thousands and thousands hours learning over the course of your life. What’s crazy is that despite the fact that we have all those hours sitting in the classroom, learning musical instruments, martial arts, business, language, whatever - no one teaches us how to optimize that learning experience.
But there are principles that you can apply to any area of life you want to improve in. From beating people who have been training waaaaay more than I have in ju jitsu to watching our business grow exponentially in the last 6 months. So think of an area of your life that you want to start crushing the competition in and apply these 5 tips to learn 10x faster
1. Measure the smallest possible victory
2. Drill one thing at a time until it is unthinking habit.
3. Shorter periods of study every day beat cramming
4. When you are starting, try a million different things
5. Debrief your successes and failures

Modern Warfare Remastered - “Think Fast” Challenges Guide
Next challenge guide coming right up, and I think this one's my favorite. The Think Fast grenade impact challenges (for the nade, Stun, and Flash) seem like they require a ton of luck, but once you know how much damage a direct impact deals, you can definitely go in with a strategy to get them done faster.
Mentioned the Ouch rifle mounted grenade launcher challenge at the end, but this video is mainly about how incredibly easy Think Fast Stun is, and everything you should know to be working towards Think Fast (frag) and Think Fast Flash.
0:15 - You may just get lucky
0:28 - How much damage is a direct impact?
1:01 - Think Fast Stun incredibly easy & fast
2:20 - What about the Flash and Frag?
2:40 - Could still try Hardcore
4:02 - Using the same weakening strategy in Core
4:20 - Stopping Power Sniper Rifle (legshot): 98 damage
5:00 - 30 damage weapons
5:35 - Going for this challenge all the time not recommended
6:34 - Calculate the damage on your frequently used weapons
7:19 - The perfect opportunity
7:49 - Let's PRACTICE what we've learned! (Humor)
10:05 - An example class if you want to make a dedicated one
10:47 - Closing note 1: Last Stand people don't help
11:23 - Closing note 2: Ouch, the other direct impact challenge

Disney Th!nk Fast PS2 Multiplayer Gameplay Think Fast
Here we play through the ps2 quiz game Disney Think Fast. A quiz game on par with the buzz series. The game has gone one step forward with a more detailed voiceover who explains pretty much everything you hover over. Though the instant irritating thing is the damn chime noise that keeps sounding while moving through menus.
Once the game starts you can see a great ammount of detail has gone into developing the game. It features the greatest disney characters who all have a part in the game. Everything is presented and laid out well and it does keep you entertained.
The questions are for all ages of disney lovers and even those who are not that into the cartoons will know a lot of the answers anyway. Its a great game to play solo or with friends. In comparison of development it beats the buzz series, but based on it only being disney related questions an adult would probably return to a buzz title more frequently.
Its one id definately recommend

Same quality you expect but the inspiration you want.
In our previous speed of play videos we taught you how to check one shoulder to increase your speed of play.
You can see those videos by clicking here -
Now we are making it more challenging by checking both shoulders. We check our shoulders before we receive a pass so we can see if a defender is closing us down, where your open teammates are, where the space is or maybe the goalie is out and you can shoot.
The best players have 3-4 options on each play and they know those options prior to receiving the ball because they check their shoulders. Make it a habit!
1. Angle your body as you check to the ball. Turn sideways so you can see more of the field. If the ball is with the fullback, stand like this. Not this.
2. Before your teammate makes a pass check your shoulder facing your defensive third and look around you. Don't turn your head in a circle, just look as you naturally would when you turn your head.
3. As the ball is coming to you, check your shoulder facing your attacking third. This should be a big look so you see the entire field. Make sure you look up, not down at the ground.
4. Don't wait until the ball is right on top of you to check your shoulders. Do it earlier when the ball is in route so you have time to look at the ball again before it's at your feet. Even the best players still need to look at the ball when it's time to control it.
A ball, two cones and wall or a fence. If you don't have a fence you can use a partner.
Exercise Player Can Do:
Pass the ball off the fence. As the ball starts to come back to you check both of your shoulders then either turn and go forward or take a touch and pass it back to the fence and pretend you have a man on situation.
For turning and going forward just dribble 10 yards and turn around.
Repeat this exercise for a few minutes. Then rest and repeat again.
What Player Could Be Doing Wrong:
If you are taking a bad touch consistently and feel like you can see the ball before it gets to you then you are checking your shoulders to late. Do it earlier. Don't look away from the ball when you take your touch.
On the first shoulder check don't turn your head in a circle. You only need to look with a natural turn because when you take a look over your forward shoulder you will see the rest of the field.
Do this exercise and our other Speed of Play exercises on a regular basis. Make it a habit to check your shoulders and it will greatly increase your level of play.
It will feel like the game has slown down for you because you always know what to do prior to getting the ball.
Next time you watch a pro game, watch the top pros prior to them receiving a pass and you will see them checking their shoulders.
Doesn't matter whether you are 25 making millions playing for Manchester United or 15 playing for West Idaho United, you can check your shoulders and have great speed of play!

10 BEST IDEAS | Thinking Fast And Slow | Daniel Kahneman | Book Summary
Subscribe to Clark's Channel:
Can you trust your intuition? What are the cognitive biases that control our thought process and our life: discovering it in this week's book review THINKING FAST AND SLOW.
Thinking Fast and Slow is an awesome book by Daniel Kahnerman. This book summary and book review of Thinking Fast and Slow will go over the BEST 10 IDEAS from Daniel Kahnerman's book. You might also consider getting the full book or audiobook for this – it’s great.
11 Questions That May Change Your Life:
GET THE BOOK:
★★★ BIG 10 IDEAS ★★★
1. TWO SYSTEMS
FAST: Intuitive / quick / emotional - Fight or Flight - that part is still hardwired into us. Can't escape it. SLOW: slower / logical / deliberate. Why this matters? We think of ourselves as rational in decision making, DK unpacks cognitive biases that really control us and hijack our fast system. Next part of this video going to focus on second half of book. Cognitive Biases that system one FAST system uses.
Make judgements on how likely event will happen based on how easy it is to think of an example. Availability doesn't equate to truth.
3. PEAK END RULE
We don't remember entire experience. Our brain can't store entire experience, it summarizes it into three parts: Beginning, Middle, End. EX: relationship - weren't that bad... just complete opposite of you and fought every other day! EX: diet made you lost 20lbs - but only eat 1 x day and starving! EX: back in college days - but freaking out inside about debt and life choices! See whole picture - put in perspective before we reminisce about grass being greener. Don't such your happiness away today because of misconstrued incomplete vision of yesterday.
4. ENDOWMENT EFFECT
We think an object we own or use is more valuable that its actually worth. EX: selectiveness being a buyer vs seller. Application: Why it's hard to be objective on ourselves. We are too close to us - too endowed with us, need outside perspective sometimes. Close friend? Coach? Journal questions?
How a problem is framed determines our choices more than we think. EX: As organ donors to opt-out = much more organ donors than opt-in. (Opt-out is a bad person, we don't want to feel that way) EX: Would you want a surgery with 90% survival rate - or one with 10% mortality rate? Most people said they would do number one but not number two... despite the odds being the same.
6. LOSS AVERSION
We will work harder not to lose something, than we will to gain something. We dislike losing more than we enjoy winning. EX: Golf - way more likely to putt for par and stay away from bogie (one over par) than go for birdie (one under par). Why change is hard! Easier to stay in job that's secure than risk it and potentially lose our security.
Always ask, compared to what? Your salary compared to top 1% USA - you make nothing. If you make over $34,000 USD you're in the top global 1%.
8. SUNK COSTS
Know when to hold em' know when to fold em'. Fear of if we quit - everything wasted! Paradox of Choice
9. SLOW DOWN
We can't tap into our slow form of thinking if we're constantly in fast thinking. We need to find ways to slow down. HOW TO SLOW: 1. Meditation mindfulness 2. No email first hour of day / last hour at night. 3. FULL day off per week. 4. JOURNAL more.
10. INVEST IN YOURSELF
Journaling is the Number one thing you can do to change your life.
1. Keep a log you can look back on years down road
2. Coach Yourself (all these ideas)
3. Develop self awareness invest in you - carry over all areas of your life.

Google Tech Talks
June 16, 2008
Explore the brain's amazing ability to change throughout a person's life. This phenomenon—called neuroplasticty—is the science behind brain fitness, and it has been called one of the most extraordinary scientific discoveries of the 20th century.
PBS had recently aired this special, The Brain Fitness Program, which explains the brain's complexities in a way that both scientists and people with no scientific background can appreciate.
This is opportunity to learn more about how our minds work—and to find out more about the latest in cutting-edge brain research, from the founder of Posit Science and creator of the Brain Fitness Program software, Dr. Michael Merzenich.
Speaker: Dr. Michael Merzenich, Ph.D.
Michael M. Merzenich, PhD: Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Merzenich leads the company's scientific team. For more than three decades, Dr. Merzenich has been a leading pioneer in brain plasticity research. He is the Francis A. Sooy Professor at the Keck Center for Integrative Neurosciences at UCSF. Dr. Merzenich is a member of the National Academy of Sciences. He is the recipient of numerous awards and prizes, including the Ipsen Prize, Zulch Prize of the Max Planck Institute, Thomas Alva Edison Patent Award and Purkinje Medal. Dr. Merzenich has published more than 200 articles, including many in leading peer-reviewed journals, such as Science and Nature. His work is also often covered in the popular press, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Time and Newsweek. He has appeared on Sixty Minutes II, CBS Evening News and Good Morning America. In the late 1980s, Dr. Merzenich was on the team that invented the cochlear implant, now distributed by market leader Advanced Bionics. In 1996, Dr. Merzenich was the founding CEO of Scientific Learning Corporation (Nasdaq: SCIL), which markets and distributes software that applies principles of brain plasticity to assist children with language learning and reading. He is an inventor on more than 50 patents. Dr. Merzenich earned his BS degree at the University of Portland and his PhD at Johns Hopkins.

Thinking Fast and Slow - Daniel Kahneman in conversation with Richard Layard
Speaker(s): Professor Daniel Kahneman, Professor Lord Richard Layard
Recorded on 15 November 2011 in Old Theatre, Old Building.
Two systems drive the way we think and make choices: System One is fast, intuitive, and emotional; System Two is slower, more deliberative, and more logical. Over many years, Daniel Kahneman has conducted groundbreaking research into this -- in his own words -- machinery of the mind. Fast thinking has extraordinary capabilities, but also faults and biases. Intuitive impressions have a pervasive influence on our thoughts and our choices. Only by understanding how the two systems work together, Kahneman shows, can we learn the truth about the role of optimism in opening up a new business, and the importance of luck in a successful corporate strategy, or the difficulties of predicting what will make us happy in the future, and the psychological pitfalls of playing the stock market. Kahneman shows where we can trust our intuitions and how we can tap into the benefits of slow thinking. He offers practical and enlightening insights into how choice are made in both our business and personal lives -- and how we can guard against the mental glitches that often get us into trouble.
This public conversation between Professor Kahneman and Professor Lord Layard celebrates the publication of Kahneman's new book Thinking, Fast and Slow|.
Daniel Kahneman is Eugene Higgins Professor of Psychology Emeritus at Princeton University and a Professor of Public Affairs Emeritus at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs. The recipient of the 2002 Nobel Prize in Economics for his seminal work in psychology that challenged the rational model of judgment and decision making, his ideas have had a profound and widely regarded impact on many disciplines -- including economics, business, law and philosophy. Until now, he has never brought together his many years of research and thinking in one book.
Richard Layard is Emeritus Professor of Economics at the London School of Economics, where he was, until 2003, the founder-director of the Centre for Economic Performance. He now heads the Centre's Programme on Well-Being. Since 2000 he has been a member of the House of Lords.

Stroke: Know the signs. Think FAST.
A stroke can happen to anyone, anytime. It could be someone you know, someone next to you. Know the signs. Think FAST.
FACE: Is it drooping on one side?
ARM: Is one arm weak?
SPEECH: Is it jumbled, slurred or lost?
TIME: to call 111.
A stroke is an emergency. If you see ANY of these signs call 111 to give someone a better chance of recovery.

The main aim of the FAST campaign is to help people recognise the symptoms of a stroke - and to act FAST.
With over 12,000 people in Scotland having a stroke every year, it is essential that people can recognise a stroke when it's happening and take prompt action.
