Tim Discar January 18, 2011 UWP 101 Haynes Journal Entry #3 In the reading excerpt of “Blink,” by Malcolm Gladwell, the author continues to introduce new concepts of the human mind. The chapters included three main concepts of thin-slicing, priming and storytelling. In each of the cases, not understanding why we behave a certain way relates back to the main idea that one does not realize that we also behave according to our unconscious. Thin-slicing is the idea that we calculate at a rapid pace probabilities and statistics based on a short period of time. With the reading, certain individuals were trained to recognize facial expressions and develop a mathematical model to predict whether or not a couple will be married or divorced in 15 years. By far, this form of evidence has to be the strongest evidence Gladwell has to offer. Filled with statistics and actual concepts of the experiment, these chapters convince the reader of the concept of thin-slicing without losing the reader in new terminology.

    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.
