This volume provides a basic grounding in the psychology of thinking for undergraduate students with little previous knowledge of cognitive psychology. This overview explores the practical aspects and applications of everyday thinking, creative thinking, logical and scientific thinking, intelligent thinking and machine thinking. It also explores "failures of thinking", the slips of action that can lead to plane crashes and industrial accidents. Influences on decision-making such as motivation, arousal and emotion are examined, as well as the differences between "deep" and "surface" thought, "lateral" thinking and the effect of negative transfer.
