Keynote: Thinking Fast and Slow – For Testers’ Everyday Life


Presentation: Thinking Fast and Slow – For Testers’ Everyday Life


In his book Thinking Fast and Slow, Nobel winner Daniel Kahneman introduces two mental systems, one that is fast and the other slow. Together they shape our impressions of the world around us and help us make choices. Knowledge of how our minds work allows us to answer questions such as:

• When is the best time to convince someone to change their mind?
• How do you optimize your tasks and schedule?
• When is the best time to frown on the job?

In this compelling keynote, the audience will be engaged through thought exercises, descriptions of behavioral psychological studies, as well as some interesting group exercises to drive the point home.
