Well, I was listening to a podcast in Spanish and a great scientist was saying that there are studies that are seeing that decision making is not as rational as we think it is. He says that the moment you make a decision is prior to the moment you rationalize the decision. So, we are permanently justifying decisions that we have already made.
I would like to know more about this so it would be helpful if someone could tell me the veracity of the above, what advances have been made in this field and recommendations of articles or books. I would also like to gain knowledge about the neurological point of view of consciousness and what is known about it so far.
