Publisher's Summary

Are you overwhelmed with information and paralyzed by pressure? Constantly missing opportunities because your intuition is wrong? You can't just rely on your gut instinct or "hunch" when you make decisions. There's a science to improving your critical thinking, weighing pros and cons, and avoiding the traps that take you down the wrong path. We can systematically make decisions that will improve our lives if we just know what to focus on. Learn why most of our instincts about decisions are flat-out wrong. The Science of Intelligent Decision Making will teach you to seize control of your life and make sure your decisions aren't making you. This book cites years of research and scientific studies about what constitutes a great decision and the factors that will inevitably lead you there. It is an in-depth look at human nature and psychology and why we think the way we do. It's largely subconscious, but easily overcome with the methodologies described within. Think more quickly and more thoroughly - at the same time. Peter Hollins has studied psychology and the human condition for over a dozen years. This book contains tactics pulled from his personal experience, as well as some of the most famous studies in decision theory and social psychology to help you make snap decisions. Beat analysis paralysis.

  • Learn your subconscious motivations, needs, and desires
  • Discover the surprising causes and cures for decision fatigue
  • Over 10 of the most dangerous cognitive biases and decision traps
  • How to make your pros and cons lists incredibly useful - never have "buyer's remorse" regrets again
  • The six hats method of intelligent decisions
  • How to make group decisions optimally
  • The WRAP method of preparing for failure
  • How to think outside the box and creatively solve problems
