How do you make a good decision?
You can use a rational information processing mode to "calculate" the best decision under the circumstances. Or you can use your intuitive mind to "sense" the best way to go based on your experience. But still something's missing. Where's the moral element or the appeal to higher values that best represents the impact your decision might have on others?
You need to use a reflective process of thinking. Like a "third mind". A good decision is one arising from the balanced use of both the rational and intuitive processing modes, together with a high level of reflective thinking. is this how you make wise decisions?
