An interesting piece of information I learned from Dan Gilbert's interview was the concept of error correction, that is adjusting a prediction (likely mental) model as one puts it to the test. An example of this was given by Prof. Goodman's experience when tripping on sidewalks, the prediction could be arriving to a destination safely and without undergoing an embarrassing moment (such as tripping). The method of transportation is part of the model, in Prof. Goodman's case it would be walking. However, as she trips there is nothing that can stop gravity from her making contact with the ground but during such instance she can readjust the model and conclude that the sidewalk is not a good idea. There have been plenty of moments in my life when I did not obtained a desired outcome I immediately said to myself "perhaps doing this was not for the best" or "next time I will follow this method" and I now realize this is error correction in a prediction model. I am starting to agree more with the claim that humans are prediction and error correction machines.
