Are Snap Judgements Better Than Decisions to Which People Give a Lot of Thought?

In this essay I will be writing about: are snap judgements better than decisions to which people give a lot of thought?

Good judgements are very important in all situations, if you make a bad judgement the situation will most likely get worse. There are two ways to make a judgement, a snap or fast judgement or a thoughtful or slow judgement. Both ways are good in different situations.

An example of when a snap judgement should be used is: say if you were doing a timed multiple choice exam, and you come across a question that you were not prepared for or have the single clue on what the answer would be, because the exam is timed you have little time, so your judgement must be quick. This is an example of a situation in which a snap judgement should be used.

An example of when a thoughtful and slow judgement should be used is: say if you were buying a house and you had two options that you liked a lot. In this situation you should make a slow judgement because you need to make sure that you choose the right and best house, and that the house you chose is in great condition, and does not need any major repairs. This is an example of when a slow judgement should be used.

In my opinion both judgements are good as long as you use each one in the correct situation, this can be difficult though, so I recommend that you use your gut instinct if you are not sure if you have to make a fast or slow judgement. Be careful when making the choice.

Conclusion

In this essay I answered the question: are snap judgements better than decisions to which people give a lot of thought? My answer to this question is: both types of judgements are good as long as you use them in the right situation.
