Slow Thinking Manifesto
We are uncovering better ways of collaborating in interdisciplinary projects. We appreciate the value of:
Questions before answers
Observations before evaluations
Change of perspective before point of view
Self-reflection before criticism
People tend to “think fast”*. This can lead to undesirable effects. The items on the left side facilitate “slow thinking”. They improve the quality of the right side and should therefore be applied consciously and intensively.
Apply the items on the left side one time more than your intuition tells you to!


*”Fast thinking” and “slow thinking” refer to the work of Nobel Prize in Economics winner Daniel Kahneman, who has researched the dichotomy between two modes of thought (“system 1” and “system 2”).
