TIES (ransient mplicit xplicit ynchronization) might be a little challenging to understand. If you think you could benefit from more examples then I recommend Malcolm Gladwell’s 2007 book Blink. I enjoyed his examples of how explanation (explicit processing) can get in the way of intuition (implicit processing). His domains were diverse: judgment of the authenticity of antiques, implicit bias, consumer research, and police procedure.
Not everything about this book is perfect. Reviewers have pointed out some weaknesses, but I think it is helpful overall. One of my favorite statistics commentators, Andrew Gelman, wrote about the book on his blog, http://andrewgelman.com/2005/02/15/rationality_and/. Anyway, pick it up from the library and judge for yourself.
