Auditions and Snap Judgments

In this short video, the author of Blink, Malcolm Gladwell, tells a story of a trombonist who auditioned for Munich Philharmonic and the physiology of snap decisions.

Gladwell’s premise is that certain snap decisions are more right than those based on more information. Taking away 80% of information can make people better decision makers, that frugality matters and that we can do more with less.

Fascinating speaker!
