Wilson and Schooler jam study: -jams rated by tasting experts for consumer reports -participants come to lab and taste the jams -1/2 taste the jams and give their evals -1/2 taste the jams, think about the reasons why they do and don’t like each jam, and then give their evals -result: not thinking about reasons led to judgements that are closer to the judgements of the experts…we aren’t good at verbalizing what we like and why Why do we like what we like? -damage to emaotion areas of the brain ofter lead to worse, not better decision-making -antonio damasio and colleagues =damage to amygdale and or connections with frontal cortex =problems in decision-making =what to prioritize and value =w/o emotion-learning, decision making must follow tortuous “thoughtful” path Upshot of this research: o A new respect for the values of folk concepts of “intuition” and “gut reactions” May reflect implicit, affective learning rather than being “stupid” Read Gladwell’s Blink o “emotion” and “cognition” do reflect different brain systems
