Thin-slicing is a term used in psychology and philosophy to describe the ability to find patterns in events based only on "thin slices," or narrow windows, of experience. One of the most popular books on thin-slicing is Malcolm Gladwell's Blink. The central argument in Blink is that our unconscious is able to find patterns in situations and behavior based on very narrow slices of experience.
