10 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently

10 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently | Intuition | Scoop.it

Intuition is challenging to define, despite the huge role it plays in our everyday lives. Steve Jobs called it, for instance, "more powerful than intellect." But however we put it into words, we all, well, intuitively know just what it is. Pretty much everyone has experienced a gut feeling -- that unconscious reasoning that propels us to do something without telling us why or how. But the nature of intuition has long eluded us, and has inspired centuries' worth of research and inquiry in the fields of philosophy and psychology. "I define intuition as the subtle knowing without ever having any idea why you know it," Sophy Burnham, bestselling author of The Art of Intuition, tells The Huffington Post. "It's different from thinking, it's different from logic or analysis ... It's a knowing without knowing."

Our intuition is always there, whether we're aware of it or not. As HuffPost President and Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington puts it in her book Thrive:

Even when we're not at a fork in the road, wondering what to do and trying to hear that inner voice, our intuition is always there, always reading the situation, always trying to steer us the right way. But can we hear it? Are we paying attention? Are we living a life that keeps the pathway to our intuition unblocked? Feeding and nurturing our intuition, and living a life in which we can make use of its wisdom, is one key way to thrive, at work and in life.......

How many of these 10 things do you personally do?

Eli Levine's curator insight, April 23, 2014 3:33 PM

A very interesting piece.  I can't explain to you how it works.  But I do know that it is what guides me along the way and that there's nothing worse than when one's intuition is checked negatively by reality.

 

Personally, I think it has something to do with those microtubules they're discovering in our brain cells.  It's a deeper connection with the reality of life, the universe and everything that most of us can have.  And it, arguably, is what will save our universe more than anything that we can contrive or create out from the nothingness of our own brain's endless ability to hallucinate or produce.

 

Think about it.

The rational case for using your intuition in leadership | The National

The rational case for using your intuition in leadership | The National | Intuition | Scoop.it


AI was recently asked: “How much should a CEO rely on intuition?” My gut reaction was it depends on how good his intuition is. This is a very important question facing you as a leader, knowing when to trust your gut and when not to can make the difference between being right or wrong. A quick review of the research says the jury is still out on whether leaders should rely on their intuition. And I guess my own jury is still out, as there are advantages and disadvantages to intuitive leadership. It is tempting to argue that leaders should never trust their gut, thereby implying they should make decisions based solely on objective, logical analysis. Quantitative scientists say leaders use intuition because of their cognitive limitations and that this results in less than desirable outcomes. This thinking holds that intuition is a strategy of last resort and should be employed only when you cannot use a theoretical basis or rational thinking. And yet we can’t get away from the influence of our gut instincts. As rational as one wants to believe that he is, the gut can still guide the brain, bringing intuition into play for all.......

I disagree with many aspects stated in this paper:

1) Let's start with a proper definition of intuition, namely "direct perception of truth, fact, etc., independent of any reasoning process." http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/intuition

2) The "reasoned intuition", or "experts' intuition", which is by definition NOT intuition, is based on experience, that is a lot experience in the same, stable context. It is recognition, not intuition.

3) It is enough demonstrated that there is no such thing like "objective, logical analysis" on its own, for emotions do always, consciously or not, play with.

4) In a new, unknown, uncertain, unpredictable decision context, the "reasoned intuition" is, by lack of experience, of no help, misleading and even dangerous.

5) There is no such thing like "wrong intuition" according to point 1. A "wrong intuition" is either a situation as under point 4), or a reasoning polluted by wishes and fears.

 

Please, to argue on intuition, use first at all the proper definition and take in account the latest scientifical studies in neurosciences and consciousness. I really get problems with materialistic views that still spread beliefs and wrong information about human decision making.

Thomas Menk's comment, September 26, 2013 4:29 AM
.. danke Philippe für deinen Kommentar, den ich in einigen Punkten unterschreibe. Generell tue ich mich schwer, wenn man Intuition nur auf Erfahrungswissen, wie auch immer man dieses dann definiert, begrenzt. Intuition ist weit mehr als das. Trotzdem fand ich den Kontext dieses Artikels interessant, dass ein Berater für Islamic Leadership in einer Zeitschrift aus Abu Dhabi einen solchen Artikel für die Leser für wichtig hält. Ich persönlich habe keinerlei Erfahrungen über Führungs- und Entscheidungskultur in Middle East, finde es trotzdem toll, das Intuition, auch wenn der Autor hier keinen wissenschaftlichen Hintergrund vermuten lässt, in diesen Ländern als Thema diskutiert wird.
Philippe Vallat's comment, September 26, 2013 4:49 AM
Danke Thomas. Der Kontext ist spannend und ich habe kaum mehr Erfahrung als du. Immerhin hätte ich schon eine andere Qualität anstatt einer Durchmischung "intuition - gut feelings - instinct" erwartet.

Complexity Science in Human Terms: A Relational Model of Business

At the cusp of the twenty-first century, we are experiencing unprecedented structural shifts in our economy brought about by the revolutions in computation and communication technologies. Today the world is linked in ways unimaginable just a decade ago. A new kind of economy is emerging–the connected economy--a shift that rivals the onset of the Industrial Revolution in its impact on society and the way commerce is transacted.

The Role of Intuition in a World of Big Data

The Role of Intuition in a World of Big Data | Intuition | Scoop.it

In the fairly recent past, I worked as a part of the leadership team at a company that was built and run almost entirely on the intuition and instincts of a small group of founders. There was plenty of raw data and a good deal of relevant information around too, but when it came to the critical decisions around strategy, key customer relationships and managing enterprise risk, the information generally took second place to the senior leadership’s gut feelings. Given that this approach had built a highly profitable, $4 billion-revenue public company from scratch in less than a decade, it was hard to argue with — at least for as long as the founders were around and active. However, as the business grew it was clearly going to be harder, and eventually impossible, for every key decision to be vetted by the core set of “intuitions” that had driven success. It was also going to be increasingly difficult to keep regulators and the market (in the form of financial and industry analysts) happy that the business was being run on a sound footing. Even some of the large customers began to question why we were using  incomplete or out-of-date information to manage customer relationships. We never seemed to know as much about them as they expected us to.....

Intuitive intelligence in leadership

Intuitive intelligence in leadership | Intuition | Scoop.it


Can you think of an occasion where you’ve had a gut feeling that something wasn’t right about a significant business issue but didn’t listen to your intuition and later regretted it? Do you often doubt your intuition in favour of hard evidence to support your business decision? If so, you may be underutilising one of the most powerful leadership tools: your intuitive intelligence. We use our instinct and intuition in many facets of our lives. It may be one thing to do so in your personal life – but perhaps quite another to use it at work? Many people may feel that intuition has little or no place in business, that decisions should be based on empirical evidence rather than on trusting your gut feeling. But there is increasing evidence that intuition is more than merely a feeling. Many scientists now believe that it is, in fact, the result of our brains piecing together information and experiences to come to different, and less obvious solutions and conclusions. Publications, such as ‘Intelligent Memory: Improve the Memory That Makes You Smarter’, by neuroscientist Barry Gordon, show that decision-making and intuition are inextricably linked.....
