Are snap judgments better than decisions to which people give a lot of thought?
Snap judgments are not as accurate as judgments when you put in lots of thought. When you put in a lot of thought and research, you will know more then if you just snap judge.
“In decision making, we usually follow a reasoned process, weighing pros and cons, talking things over with a friend, and drawing on our past actions and experiences. In snap judgments decisions that we make on the spot, with no reflection beforehand we do not follow such a methodical decision-making process. Everything tells us that relying on snap judgments is unwise. We make such decisions, however, because they ultimately work out better than decisions to which we give a lot of thought.”
For example: A judge has to know why the suspect is going to jail for. Then suspect is judge and put on trial. To judge the suspect, you need witnesses, and lawyers. The lawyers will defend the suspect. the judge has to do research on the suspect to judge him. The lawyers will protect and bring up reasons why the suspect should or shouldn’t go to jail.
At the end of the trial the suspect may go to jail or will not go to jail. So I have showed you a way to judge in thought.
Now for snap judgement: On what a person looks like, you probably judge them right there. The thing is you cannot judge a book by its cover. You may not like the way they dress, but they may be really nice and kind.
So, are snap judgments better than decisions to which people give a lot of thought?
