A few quotes/notes from Michael Lewis, The Undoing Project (The story of Daniel Kanheman and Amos Tversky)

Thanks to FB memories.
“It’s hard to know how people select a course in life,” Amos said.
“The big choices we make are practically random. The small choices probably tell us more about who we are."
Which field we go into may depend on which teacher we happen to meet. Who we marry may depend on who is around at the right time. Otoh, small decisions are very systematic. That I became a psychologist is not very revealing. What kind of psychologist I am may reflect deep traits.
Much of life (the big picture) and history is determined by events too random to predict while having a disproportionate effect, i.e. Black Swans, but how one responds, reacts and make decisions are more telling of one's character and beliefs.
Hindsight is 20/20 and the brain always has a coherent narrative. Uncertainty (experienced while the decision was made) is uncomfortable and thus silently forgotten.
