To deliberate or not?

Our latest publication: To deliberate or not? The role of intuition and deliberation when controlling for irrelevant information in selection decisions., explained by our very own Dr. Hagai Rabinovitz:


Considering irrelevant information as suppressor variables in selection problems increases the validity of the predictors, yet people struggle to adjust their decisions accordingly. In five experiments, we found that triggering deliberative thinking did not improve the ability to correct for such information, suggesting that deliberation and analytic thinking are not necessary to correct for irrelevant information.

The results show that normative selections can be made under intuitive thinking mode and that thinking reflectively is a key skill for understanding the suppression effect.
