Perception vs Logic – Which dominates?

In the book “The Free Mind” , Ed De Bono talks about perception as the dominant force behind influencing our thoughts.

The Harvard stalwart David Perkins goes the distance in saying that 90% of errors made by us in thoughts is due to perceptions and the rest due to logic.

This goes a long way in proving that school education that teaches us to analyse and use logic falls flat in most practical scenarios wherein a false judgement is made due to perception aka the limbic Brain.

This makes is necessary to make thinking a central focus of all modern day educational curriculum.
