Intuition, the 6th sense
Do you also sometimes have the feeling that someones is watching you?
You can feel the eyes burning at your back. And yes, when you turn around there really is someone watching you.
Or when you see an object in a store and a little voice is telling you not to buy it right now, although you wanted it.
You can develop your intuition, which can be handy to deal with difficult choices. We also call this intuitive development. You can even take some courses if you want to develop your intuition. You can also do some intuitive test on the Internet. Click at the fun link on this site to find out about them.
Intuition as form of knowledge
Intuition is an unconscious form of knowledge . It is immediate and often not open to rational / analytical thought processes. Rationalisation of an intuition and the development of a chain of logic to demonstrate more structurally why it is valid may follow later.
Intuition differs from an opinion since the latter is based on experience, while an intuition is held to be affected by previous experiences only unconsciously. Intuition is also said to differ from instinct , which does not have the experience element at all. A person who has an intuitive opinion cannot immediately fully explain why he or she holds that view. Intuition is not limited to opinions but can encompass the ability to know valid solutions to problems.
Intuition has advantages in solving complex problems and finding new results. Intuition is one source of common sense . It can also help in induction to gain empirical knowledge. Sources of intuition are feeling, experiences and knowledge. An important intuitive method is brainstorming .
Intuition does not mean to find a solution immediately, though it does mean the solution comes unexplicably. Sometimes it helps to sleep one night. There is an old Russian saying: "The morning is wiser than the evening ".
