An interesting piece on how increasing analytical thinking decreases intuitive belief:
"Analytic thinking undermines belief because, as cognitive psychologists have shown, it can override intuition."
And yet, intuition is still seen as serving a useful purpose:
"Our intuitions can be phenomenally useful," Gervais says, "and analytic thinking isn't some oracle of the truth."
Though we can believe what we think, we don't think what we believe.
What are we to make of this?
