How does IPS Work?
Information from interactions is segregated and processed in two different ways on an ongoing basis to arrive at multiple decisions on how to handle them on historical and logical basis by VP and LB respectively. VP judges which of such decisions is suitable for execution using simple logic. LB contributes in decision processing as and when preset data or complex logical processing is required.
Once VP finds what it judges to be a plausible one out of the accumulated solutions (decisions), it finalizes the same for execution. The reason why VP judges which solution is beneficial for execution is because unlike LB, it has the additional capability to benefit from past experiences and projection of future considerations (VP is the "self" that distinguishes you from others).
As LB is better in logical processing, VP takes its help to scrutinize the logic used for the finalized decision (which LB does by taking for granted past and/or future data considered by VP, as they have common goals). If LB does not find the logic valid, VP continues processing the interaction.
When a plausible solution with valid logic is found, it is finalized for execution by VP, which is executed when required by LB. When the decision is to be executed, it is done by LB. If physical actions are involved in the execution, they are guided by VP.
While in the above process, if solution to complex logic is sought or if LB finds a logical solution which does not need any past or future considerations, it passes on such solution to VP along with confidence level denoting how strong it has evaluated it to be plausible, which is considered by VP in the process of finalizing the execution. The confidence a person has in such cases is based on such level passed on by LB, and thus, is gained subconsciously, i.e. by intuition, gut feeling, etc. (unless VP is capable of scrutinizing its logic, which it may if the logic is simple enough for it).
The above process is explained in detail under title The Thought Process – Step-by-Step.
