We think of ourselves as conscious, reasoning selves who have beliefs, make choices, and decide what to think about and what to do. Kahneman refers to this as the mind’s “System 2.” However, the mind’s automatic System 1 is actually where the action is. Most of what you (your System 2) think and do originates in System 1, but System 2 takes over when things get difficult, and it normally has the last word.
