Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel KahnemanIn 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.

Experian TV Ad 2017 - Meet your Data Self
Marcus Brigstocke's data self - a version of himself which restaurants, banks et al find more palatable - joins him as he goes about his business in this new ad for credit-checking company Experian. Only here he's not called Marcus, he's called Dan Virtual Marcus - sorry, Dan - is better looking, more confident and - it would appear - more open to financial risk-taking and sexually adventurous into the bargain. Real-life Dan has to make quite an effort to reign him in. And his wife flatly refuses to join them both in bed. It's amusingly done and Brigstocke creates enough of a difference between the two personae to make you wonder whether they found a good lookalike, but we're not quite sure what the message is. Real-life Dan has only come to know virtual Dan because of Experian, who introduced them.
According to freelance video editor Haythorn, the concept bears more than a passing resemblance to videos he has been posting on YouTube for more than decade featuring two versions of himself in conversation. Neither BBH nor Experian were aware of Dan Haythorn's works previously and therefore any similarity between the Experian campaign and his work is purely coincidental. Haythorn said he caught wind of the campaign before it had begun from a casting call, and contacted BBH to request they change the name of the character to "anything but Dan". The agency has offered Haythorn what he said was a "derisory" amount to settle the matter, with conditions attached he did not agree to. He has taken legal advice from specialist IP lawyers, and said he believed he was in a strong position to bring a claim against BBH.
This advert has bothered me for quite a while. I find the actor who plays this everyman and his double, Marcus Brigstocke, annoying—score one to the advert. Is this person really like me, only less presentable? What impact does this other me have on what the actual me can do? And—this question might come across as a little odd—who does this other me belong to?
