...tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms... ...such as fever, sweats, chills, muscle aches or cough. or if you have received a vaccine or plan to. if you have inflammatory bowel disease, tell your doctor if symptoms develop or worsen. serious allergic reactions may occur. see me. see me. see me. on my way. find clear skin... and a clearer path forward. for a different kind of medicine, ask your dermatologist about cosentyx. let's jusor something.ich "or something"? you don't just graduate from medical school, "or something." and we don't just pull smoked chicken, bake fresh foccacia and hand-slice avocado. there's nothing "or something" about it. are my teeth yellow? have you tried the tissue test? ugh yellow. what do you use?

there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto.

barely survived. it's like watching an animal trying to swallow itself whole starting with its tail. every time he has an idea he becomes unsure of an idea. >> for those not familiar with their work, we've heard the phrase trust your gut and heard how stereotypes lead us to make mistakes by trusting our gut or misperceptions. but a good example would be what? >> well, sports is a good example. the example i love is the basketball player who became a star, a star for the new york nets. but no one drafted him. none of the nba teams drafted him. >> and he was a big store in california. >> and no college teams wants him either coming out of high school. and the grasp on him, talking to general managers, he's not athletic. and then, of course, he gets the
chance he's incredible athletic. they start measuring athleticism by putting sensors on him and seeing how fast his two steps are, he's all of the charts. so why is it when people looking at him make a judgment. can't see the athleticism. and jeremy said this and also the general manager said this because he's asian. because they hadn't seen it before. one of the things they talk about the power -- the way the mind fixes stereotypes. it's actually wired to fix stereotypes. we're wired -- we have some model in our mind what a president looks like. what a basketball player looks like. or what our investment adviser looks like and we match. so that's one of the reasons that our thinking often doesn't look right. often, the person doesn't look right for the job. >> and somebody makes a just
about somebody's face and they're told, no, you'll never do this. >> that's right. actually one of my lessons i pulled out of my exposure to amos, when i'm looking for someone looking for a job. looking for a doctor, if someone doesn't look right as a doctor they're almost certainly a great doctor. if you don't look the part, it's so much harder. you all look like talk show hosts i'm sure you're good, too. but you could have got here just on your looks. and that's a problem. that's a problem. >> i like that you talk to the relationship -- because amos is no longer with us. he died back in 1996. >> '96. >> you said you were reluctant to approach danny to write this book that you were nervous. >> so, this is a psychologist who won a nobel prize in economics with like a flip of a wrist. just the way the work changed economics. and everything that comes out 6
his mouth is really, really interesting. and i didn't think he would take an interest in me or it. so, it took a while. it took a long time. >> you kept going back and back and back? >> we'd go on long walks together. actually, the ideas were really interesting. but the relationship -- >> it was the crux of it? >> and the two best characters i've ever known in life. bar none. that was the other thing, you know, a lot of times i feel as a writer i've been the "b" student writing that other "b" student and i can get my mind around the subjects. here i'm a "b" student trying to get my arms around an "a" student. i felt like a gnat. >> what do you know about making better and good decisions? >> well, time will tell if i make decisions better. i had these two guys in my head when making decisions which is the characters play themselves
in this. but i think the big thing is, one of their big things is you try to make the world feel like something that it actually is. my mind is always doing that. we felt like we should have seen trump coming. a lot of things are dumb that we didn't know the stock market was going to go up. >> managed with probability. >> gayle knew. >> gayle knows everything. but in my face, preserving a sense of uncertainty while you're making decisions is really, really important, rather than -- needs total conviction. >> michael, it's great to have you here. >> yeah. >> "cbs this morning" will be right back.
