Don’t we all like a good contradiction?

I am a huge fan of Gerd Gigerenzer who preaches numeracy and uncertainty education. One of Prof. Gigerenzer’s pivotal theses is “Fast and Frugal Heuristics” which is also popularized in his book “Gut Feelings” (listen to this podcast if you don’t want to read the book). I like this approach.

Today, I listened to the latest episode of the Brainfluence podcast that hosted the psychologist Dr. Gleb Tsipursky who wrote an extensive book called “Never Trust your Gut” with a seemingly contradicting thesis. I added this book to my TOREAD list.
