Lit: The Organised Mind

Last updated on November 26, 2016

‘The Organised Mind’ by Daniel Levitin makes the statement that: “The decision-making network in our brains doesn’t prioritise” which he presents as one of the most useful findings in neuroscience.

This is why Obama reduces the amount of non-necessary decisions, such as what suits to wear in the morning.

I think this is useful in software design since we should only give the user relevant options. For example, in a writing application having plenty of layout options waste the users decision-making energy and should be a separate system, for when others, or the writer, are doing layouts.
