Using your brain: cognitive bias at work. <xhtml:br>
<xhtml:span id="ms-rterangepaste-start"/>
<xhtml:br>The human brain is highly complex and evolved over millions of years, but we can think of it in
simple terms as two distinct functions: an ‘old’ brain, and a ‘new’ one.
<xhtml:br>
<xhtml:br>The old brain is fast, effortless, and instinctive, but can be inaccurate. It looks after senses,
intuition, and emotion. This is also called the ‘automatic system’ or ‘system 1’.
<xhtml:br>
<xhtml:br>The new brain is capable and precise, but requires concentration and effort. It handles
reason, thought, and planning. This is also called the ‘reflective system’ or ‘system 2’. ​<xhtml:span id="ms-rterangepaste-end"/>
