The LITE version of MentalModels, containing 28 Full Mental Models - whereas the paid version has over 120 Mental Models.
So, if you've ever wanted to out-think a smarter friend?
Now you can, by grabbing the most appropriate idea, regardless of subject area. Think Mental Models (Paid APP) provides over 120 thinking models, covering everything from business to behavior.
The Think Mental Models framework was pioneered by Warren Buffett's business partner, Charles Munger. According to Buffett, Mr. Munger has ‘the best 30-second mind in the world. He goes from A to Z in one move. He sees the essence of everything before you even finish the sentence’ (Forbes, January 22, 1996).
Mr. Munger has explained his approach in lectures and books. Essentially, he thinks by using the BIG IDEAS from the major disciplines. He has a list of these ideas (mental models) in his mind and quickly picks the one(s) applicable to the given situation, much as a pilot automatically goes through a checklist prior to take-off.
So, why not take the plunge and join the thinking world of Buffett and Munger? After all, it's how people like US get really smart.
Note: Whilst this APP works on the iPad, a better option would be the PDF that is available through the support URL.
