“The Trouble With Intuition”

Dan and I have a long-ish article based on material from The Invisible Gorilla, called “The Trouble With Intuition,” in this week’s issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education. We argue that intuition has been oversold as a method of making sound decisions, and that relying on intuition is dangerous whenever those intuitions concern how our minds work, how much we know, and how we come to conclusions about causality.
