Description: In These Accelerated Times, our decisive and businesslike ways of thinking are unprepared for ambiguity, paradox, and "sleeping on it". We assume that the quick-thinking "hare brain" will beat out the slower intuition of the "tortoise mind". However, new research in cognitive science suggests that patience and confusion -- rather than rigor and certainty -- are the essential precursors of wisdom. With a compelling argument that the mind works best when we trust our unconscious or "undermind", psychologist Guy Claxton, in this illuminating book, makes an appeal to be less analytical and let our creativity have free rein. He also encourages a reevaluation of society's obsession with results-oriented thinking and problem-solving under pressure.
