Let’s play.

This activity is from Effective Communication section from my seminar. I have two puzzles for you. While solving them, you should be able to see the difference between the two systems of thinking that we have: Fast and Slow.

The Fast one operates automatically with little or no effort and no sense of voluntary control. It helps us survive.

The Slow one kicks into action when we need to perform complex calculations and associations. It deals with subjective experience, choice and concentration.

Understanding how these two systems work might be helpful to reflect on how we are making our decisions, conclusions, assumptions.

So, solve the puzzles and let me know the answer.

A bat and a ball cost $1.10 The bat costs $1.00 more than the ball. How much does the ball cost? ______________

In a lake there is a patch of lily pads. Every day, the path doubles in size. If it takes 48 days for the patch to cover the entire lake, how long would it take for the patch to cover half the lake?  ______________

Good luck 🙂
