Also, In Chapter 3 of Emergence, the author quotes Ray Kurzweil on page 127:
“Humans are far more skilled at recognizing patterns than in thinking through logical combinations, so we rely on this aptitude for almost all of our mental processes. Indeed, pattern recognition comprises the bulk of our neural circuitry. These faculties make up for the extremely slow speed of human neurons.”
I believe it is extremely important as we develop mental models to understand as much as possible about how we process information as well as understanding patterns in our decision-making process. This can be overwelming at times, but it makes me slow down and become more observant in how I am making decisions.
