"There’s a fascinating new paper in Psychological Science by the Dutch psychologist Ap Dijksterhuis on the virtues of unconscious thought when it comes to predicting the outcome of soccer matches. It turns out that the conscious brain...gets in the way of expertise. ...(This) experiment suggests that...the best experts naturally depend on their unconscious mind, on that subterranean warehouse of feelings, hunches and instincts." "This research is an important reminder that the unconscious is smarter than we can comprehend, as it processes vast amounts of information in parallel. ...Sometimes, we just need to learn to listen."
