How can an art expert differentiate between a fake and an original piece of art within seconds? How can a marriage analyst know within minutes whether the couple will stay together or not? Some ideas like this and much more gain a true resolution in Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking by Malcolm Gladwell.
The best-selling author dissects and discusses the art of human intuition and elaborates on how humans can, by developing it to perfection, be able to make quick yet accurate and effective decisions. Termed as ‘snap judgments’ in the book, the author elaborates by using situations on how ‘snap judgments’ can be more efficient than reasoned ones, which borders on deliberation.
However, the book is not just an analysis of ‘snap judgment’; rather, the book elaborates on situations that happen on a daily basis for enabling quick attention to the finer details from among a host of variables.
