A couple of episodes ago, I have Steven Pinker, cognitive psychologist, linguist, and popular science author, on to talk about this new book, Rationality: What It Is, Why It Seems Scarce, Why It Matters. And at the end of this book, there are quizzes to see if you're system 1 or system 2 in terms of Rationality.

Naturally, I have to try this quiz on people, so I have my wife, Robyn, and Jay The Engineer on to see how they do on the quiz! We also talked about some of the different biases.

My new book Skip The Line is out! Make sure you get a copy wherever you get your new book!
