Divisions of the mind illuminate limitations of the  “rational self”  Automatic responses are relatively insensitive to  intended goal (e.g., Stroop) Motivations based on “Old-brain” limbic system  may overpower rational behavior (e.g., drinking  seawater)  Confabulation of split-brain patients suggests  the rational self  can be more like the brain’s  press secretary than its CEO

Limitations of rational self provide a starting point  for understanding why realizations about how we  could be happier rarely make a sustained  difference.

The primary function of brains is to select and execute movement. Selection of movement requires evaluation of stimuli (good-bad) Evaluation is central to what brains accomplish

Evaluation is automatic Doesn’t require intention  Doesn’t require awareness  Doesn’t interfere with most secondary  tasks Effortless and fast

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
