An idea popularized in bestsellers such as Malcolm Gladwell’s “Blink - The power of thinking without thinking” and “The smart unconscious” by Ap Dijksterhuis is that you should not think too hard when you need to make a difficult decision.

Mark Nieuwenhuis explores the origins of this widely popular idea, and I discuss what scientific research has to say about it.
