    Thinking Fast Isn't Simple: On the Complexities of Implicit Cognition
    Jan De Houwer | Ghent University, Belgium
    The insight that humans do not always think and act in a careful and deliberative manner is arguably the single most influential idea in the recent history of behavioral sciences. It transformed research in psychology and economics, resulting in two Nobel prices (Kahneman, Thaler). In this talk, I argue that the full implications of this idea can be appreciated only if one takes into account its complexities. At the conceptual level, it is very hard to pinpoint the distinction between different modes of behavior or thinking (e.g., thinking fast vs. slow; implicit vs. explicit cognition; System 1 vs. System 2). At the empirical level, there is little evidence for “pure” instances of a particular mode of behavior or thinking. Rather than questioning the basic idea that humans often think and act in a spontaneous manner, I argue that knowledge about these complexities broadens our understanding of and capacity to influence human behavior.

    30. Januar 2018 @ 17:00 - 18:30
    Universität zu Köln, Neuer Senatssaal (Hauptgebäude), Albertus-Magnus-Platz, 50923 Köln

    The next C-SEB talk will take place on Tuesday, January 30th, 2018 from 17.00 to 18.30 in the Neuer Senatssaal (Hauptgebäude) of the UoC. The invited speaker for the talk is Adam Galinsky. There will be a dinner and get-together afterwards (Dozentenzimmer, Hauptgebäude).
    Title of Adam Galinsky's C-SEB talk:
    INSPIRE: The Three Principles of Inspiring Leadership

    Based on hundreds of social sciencestudies and thousands of interviews and discussions from across the globe, Ihave distilled the scientific essence of what it means to be an inspiringleader into three factors: Exemplar, Mentor, Visionary. Exemplars inspireothers through their own behavior, from their courage to their authenticpassion to their calm consistency. Mentors focus on others, developing andempowering others through opportunity, generosity and empathy. Visionaries seethe big picture, a positive vision of tomorrow that is full of meaning andpurpose. Through compelling examples and research findings, this talkidentifies the key routes to inspire others, explains why we fail to beinspiring (and end up being infuriating instead), and offers concrete steps toconsistently inspire others. After this session you will INSPIRE others—andyourself—on a daily basis.

    Two Modes of Learning and the Description-Experience Gap
    People can learn about the probabilistic consequences of their actions in two ways: One is by consulting descriptions of an action’s consequences and probabilities. The other is by personally experiencing the probabilistic consequences of an action. In the last dozen years research has demonstrated systematic discrepancies between description- and experienced-based choices. This description experience gap has been attributed to factors including reliance on a small set of experience, the impact of recency, and different weighting of probability information in the two decision types. In this talk, I will present the results of our recent meta-analysis evaluating these and other determinants of the decision-experience gap. We found a robust gap but also a key moderator, namely, problem structure. Second, the largest determinant of the gap was reliance on small samples and the associated sampling error. Third, the gap persisted when sampling error was eliminated. Fourth, the occurrence of recency was contingent on decision makers’ autonomy to terminate search, consistent with an optional stopping rule. Finally, we found indications of different probability weighting in experience versus description when the problem structure involved a risky and a safe option. I will delineate implications of these results for models of choice under uncertainty and discuss potential applications in the context of risk communication.

    The aging lexicon: Differences in the semantic networks of younger and older adults
    Cognitive aging is often equated with cognitive decline. However, while fluid abilities, such as reasoning, working memory, and processing speed, decline, crystallized abilities often flourish. One variable that appears to particularly defy the common developmental trend is vocabulary size, showing performance increases into late adulthood. Based on this finding, it was recently demonstrated that the rise in vocabulary size, and crystallized abilities in general, may in parts be responsible for the decline in more fluid abilities. Building upon this hypothesis, I will present evidence using a network-approach that older and younger adults’ representations of words, also known as their mental lexicon, differ not only in size but also in structure. Moreover, I will show that these structural differences in the mental lexica of younger and older adults can be explained in terms of differences in the amount of experiences made by younger and older adults. In light of known connections between network structure and cognitive functioning, these results strengthen the view of cognitive decline being driven by extended learning, rather than cognitive or neuronal deterioration.
