Trust the unconscious self

An interesting point at “sleeping on it” or the way we put it in Russian -- “утро вечера мудренее”.

The research suggests the conscious mind should be trusted only with simple decisions, such as selecting a brand of oven glove. Sleeping on a big decision, such as buying a car or house, is more likely to produce a result people remain happy with than consciously weighing up the pros and cons of the problem, the researchers say.
