How Can You Understand What’s Going On?

We respond to situations, and then we make the decisions: How actually do we understand the world?

Richard E. Nisbett, the author of a book titled “Mindware, “ says there are three major insights about how our mind works: everything’s an inference, the power of situation, and the rational unconscious. We perceive the world using the accumulated knowledge and hidden mental processes. Situation shapes how people interact and behave in certain ways, and this is more influential than the natural characteristic tendency. And, The unconscious mind plays a role as much as the conscious mind.

To understand these three insights will benefit the way we live.
