Blink, by Malcolm Gladwell - A Discussion

I love this book. It delves into the mysteries of the subconscious mind and how it interact with our decision making processes. We don't realize how much of our likes and dislikes are affected by our subconscious.

One of the topics discussed is small slicing. Our brains will start disecting the input we recieve from an initial interation with an individual prior to even speaking with them. Before we consciously decide whether or not we like another person, our subconscious is biasing our developing opinions.

This is just a minute example of what the book is about. If you have read it, Let me hear from you. I would like your conscious impressions. If you have not read Blink, Pick up a copy. I found it captivating from beginning to end. It so enthralled me that I I got a copy of Malcolm Gladwell's The Tipping Point, and was equally captivated.

Comments please.
