From the #1 bestselling author of The Bomber Mafia, the landmark book that has revolutionized the way we understand leadership and decision making.

In his breakthrough bestseller The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell redefined how we understand the world around us. Now, in Blink, he revolutionizes the way we understand the world within.

Blink is a book about how we think without thinking, about choices that seem to be made in an instant??in the blink of an eye??that actually aren't as simple as they seem. Why are some people brilliant decision makers, while others are consistently inept? Why do some people follow their instincts and win, while others end up stumbling into error? How do our brains really work??in the office, in the classroom, in the kitchen, and in the bedroom? And why are the best decisions often those that are impossible to explain to others?

In Blink we meet the psychologist who has learned to predict whether a marriage will last, based on a few minutes of observing a couple; the tennis coach who knows when a player will double-fault before the racket even makes contact with the ball; the antiquities experts who recognize a fake at a glance. Here, too, are great failures of "blink": the election of Warren Harding; "New Coke"; and the shooting of Amadou Diallo by police.

Blink reveals that great decision makers aren't those who process the most information or spend the most time deliberating, but those who have perfected the art of "thin-slicing"??filtering the very few factors that matter from an overwhelming number of var… (lisätietoja)

Fascinating information about how we think and about choices we make in instant -- which are often more accurate than ones we spend time deliberating about. Really interesting case studies too. ( )
  bschweiger | Feb 4, 2024 |
Interesting discussion that contrasts first impression "gut feeling" snap decisions versus decisions made after deeper analysis. The book gives a lot of examples where snap decisions were better than analysis, and a lot of examples where snap decisions were terrible; but it doesn't really have a coherent theory for why this happens, so it's all pretty anecdotal. I still found it entertaining; the discussions of implicit bias in police shootings and job hiring were particularly interesting. ( )

Jeepers this was an annoying book.

Its main problem is that it doesn't manage to hold to any central thesis. I think many people would pick it up thinking it's about how we make better decisions when we act instinctively, rather than over-analyze decisions.

Actually the main conclusion Gladwell draws is "it depends".

The back-up to that is that experts in a field, with years of experience, can instinctively make correct decisions, without necessarily being able to articulate precisely why. No, really.

There were some interesting bits of psychology, particularly about how articulating why we make a decison may actually be detrimental to our being able to do it (as the thing your memory stores is then your articulation of it, not the doing of it). However, he seems to then ignore the things he is telling us, in relying on 1st hand accounts of instinctual events, which he has told us are inherently unreliable. Gah!

As with The Tipping Point, there is quite a bit of this cherry-picking data, according to whichever way his argument is blowing at the time, and much flawed logic. For example:

* He claims that strangers judging a subject's character from their bedroom are more accurate than the subject's friends judgements. Actually he means that they more closely match the self-assessments of the subject, which may or may not be accurate.

* I'm paraphrasing, but he says that doctors that we think have a domineering tone have been "found wanting" by us, with the implication that we should ignore them. But actually he has previously said that they are simply more likely to be sued, and that that has no correlation with how many medical mistakes they make. So they have not been "found wanting" and a doctor with a nicer tone may well be a worse doctor.

* he says that that if we want to have more positive instinctive associations about black people, we should get to know some, hang out with them, become friends etc., etc. That's a nice piece of social engineering, which I am very happy to support in principle, but what he has shown earlier in the chapter is that if you want to have more positive instinctive associations actually what you want to do is think about positive black role models (MLK, Nelson Mandela) and watch international track and field events.

* Gladwell cites a statistic that displays of contempt in a relationship are correlated with number of colds suffered by the recipient of the contempt, from which he draws the conclusion the effect is so stressful that it suppresses the immune systen. What?! where does that conclusion come from? It could be the person is throwing sickies, or that they're taking long walks in the cold, or they're smoking more, etc., etc. But Gladwell seems to blithely draws these confident conclusions without pause or consideration.

Gladwell still writes engagingly (I read this in a day) and many of the anecdotes and sciencey snippets are fascinating. I feel his books would have more integrity if they were just collections of essays (or his articles). As it is he seems hidebound to find some grand overarching theme, leading him to undermine the good and interesting writing that is here.

It gave me some insight to a lot of things. But it wasn't as enjoyable and educational "The Tipping Point" by the same author. ( )

Beyond question, Gladwell has succeeded in his avowed aim. Though perhaps less immediately seductive than the title and theme of The Tipping Point, Blink satisfies and gratifies.
 
If you want to trust my snap judgment, buy this book: you'll be delighted. If you want to trust my more reflective second judgment, buy it: you'll be delighted but frustrated, troubled and left wanting more.
 
"Blink" brims with surprising insights about our world and ourselves, ideas that you'll have a hard time getting out of your head, things you'll itch to share with all your friends.

You can't judge a book by its cover. But Gladwell had me at hello — and kept me hooked to the final page.
 
As a researcher, Gladwell doesn't break much new ground. But he's talented at popularizing others' research. He's a clever storyteller who synthesizes and translates the work of psychologists, market researchers and criminologists.

We have come to confuse information with understanding.
We live in a world that assumes that the quality of a decision is directly related to the time and effort that went into making it.
The key to good decision making is not knowledge. It is understanding. We are swimming in the former. We are desperately lacking in the latter.
