Today, our favorite YouTube science illustrators want to teach you about fast thinking and slow thinking with some cool brain tricks. I can see no reason why we shouldn’t oblige them.

Long story short, your fast thinking mechanisms in your brain are always trying to parse out information as quickly as possible. This is fairly useful in day-to-day life. But sometimes, our fast thinking betrays us in its desire for speed. Slow thinking is what we need to use to solve certain problems.

But then again, slow thinking engagement can make you blind to a bunch of other stimuli out there in the world.

Basically, your brain is awesome and terrible. Have fun.
