The world we interpret
At every moment, we explain reality to ourselves.
Our senses collect information and we organize it in a way that will help us understand the situation.
In this process, our brain is using two different brain systems that balance each other.
System 1 - Our intuition, our gut feeling.
A system that works fast, that uses the information we already have.
We rely on our expectations and beliefs to interpret the reality we perceive.
System 2 - "The analyst"
A system that develops in a slow process, collects bits and pieces of information, and combines the information altogether for a complete picture.
We all interpret reality based on the two systems. sometimes we use one system more than the other.
Which system characterizes you more?
