Intuition and Decision-Making: Understanding Without Effort
If a situation just doesn't feel quite right, and you're not sure why, what do you do? Do you take a chance, or do you go with your gut and turn the other way? That little suggestion of doubt is your intuition. On today's HearSay, we'll take a closer look at what your intuition is, and how it works. Also joining us, Dr. Poornima Madhavan, Assistant Professor of Psychology at Old Dominion Unniversity in Norfolk and the University's Applied Decision Making Lab.

Guests:
Christopher Chabris - Author of "The Invisible Gorilla and Other Ways Our Intuitions Deceive Us"
Dr. Poornima Madhavan - Assistant Professor of Psychology - Old Dominion University
