Mental models allow for better thinking
Thinking can become a superpower if we learn to harness mental models, in other words, patterns of thinking based on general concepts which help us understand a situation more quickly, allowing us to make better decisions both personally and professionally. These models provide shortcuts to deeper reasoning: once we get the general gist of a case, we can skip "basic" thinking, and immediately reach the highest level. Our intuition —or quick thinking— is mainly based on the reactions our brain has already recorded. It will replicate them without the need to reflect further, sometimes causing more harm than anything else. By contrast, logical thinking, also called slow thinking, is triggered in uncertain situations with which we are not yet familiar.
To improve our instincts, we need to learn as many mental models as possible, to be able to apply them quickly.
