Exploring Assumptions

Eating is a conscious act. Given the right information, people can eat the right types and quantity of food.

OR

Eating is an unconscious behavior controlled by the environment rather than by the individual.

Decision Making

Brain Processes • We can think about only one thing at a time

• Everything else functions automatically

– Entire human processing capacity (including visual system and unconscious) can process ~11 million bits per second

– Humans can consciously process 40-60 bits per second

– Most actions and decisions are NOT conscious
