In the book Thinking Fast and Slow, Kahneman explains our decision-making processes using two fictional entities:
System 1 is automatic; it relies on gut feelings, shortcuts, habits, and heuristics to make decisions, sometimes very effectively, and in other cases with suboptimal results. System 1 is terrible at assessing probability, as any statistics teacher will tell you.
System 2 is effortful, engaged when we concentrate to compute math problems or give someone detailed driving directions. This system consumes a great deal of energy, so we avoid using it as much as possible.
Both decision-making systems are vital for our survival.
