Re: Maarten Bos
The adage that urges one to sleep on a problem might make more sense than we realise. Research by Maarten Bos, a post-doctoral fellow at Harvard Business School, and his colleagues has found that the unconscious mind is able to handle a larger amount of information than the conscious mind. As a result, says Mr Bos, unconscious thought can support the mental organisation that is needed for making complex decisions.
