Experiencing it so-so, remembering it well

From Prospect magazine: "There is striking evidence (detailed by the Nobel laureate Daniel Kahneman in his book Thinking, Fast and Slow) that each of us has a 'remembering self,' which makes decisions, and an 'experiencing self,' which actually does the living. And when the remembering self looks back on an experience and decides how enjoyable it was, it can arrive at an assessment that is quite out of whack from what the experiencing self actually endured."
