other remarks[edit]

I am really fascinated by the intuitive-experiential mode of processing. I had no idea it governed most of information processing, which is interesting give that it is partially driven by emotion. I also thought that the finding that emotional investment in an experience increases the involvement of the system really cool. I also liked the approach-avoidance component and the implications for psychopathologies. Really interesting topic!

I think you should try and make the first few sentences a little more clear. When you were breaking down the 3 assumptions underlying CEST I was a bit confused because you also included the 2 components of intuitive-experiential mode of processing in between. Did you learn anything about whether one can change the prevalence of either system in info processing through learning or training? I guess “procedurizing” certain behaviors is one way to so it..are there ways to make the opposite transition (from experiential to analytical) in certain domains of experience?Msbeaulieu (talk) 02:44, 20 April 2012 (UTC)

Peer Review II[edit]

This is great work. This article is a sophisticated coverage of the information relevant to the topic. I've outlined a few suggestions that you may consider below:

  • The hook paragraph is a bit long. You may want to consider transferring some of the information into the main body of the article.
  • You may consider expanding the paragraph about the Analytical-Rational System to make it the same size as the Intuitive-Experiential System article.
  • Under the major section entitled "Importance and Implications.." you may consider dividing into at least two sections, with one about theoretical/scientific importance and another one about clinical/applied implications.
