In his spectacular book, Kahneman identifies the 2 systems in your mind in this manner:
"System 1 operates automatically and quickly, with little or no effort and no sense of voluntary control.
System 2 allocates attention to the effortful mental activities that demand it, including complex computations. The operations of System 2 are often associated with the subjective experience of agency, choice, and concentration."
For several years these 2 systems have existed in our brain to help us navigate and interact in life. System 1 is an instinctive system that cannot be switched off. It helps us to perform cognitive tasks in our everyday life like identifying threats, facial recognition etc. System 2 enables us to solve complex problems. Though useful, it demands effort and energy to engage it. This is why many times, our brain tends to avoid system 2 which results in rash and irrational decisions.
