Grade 'A' Meat

"The unconscious mind is extremely sensitive to context. … A group of doctors was given a small bag of candy and another group was given nothing. Then they were all asked to look at a patient’s history and make a diagnosis. The doctors who got the candy were quicker to detect the liver problem than those who didn’t.”
 From David Brooks - The Social Animal
