Intuitive Decision-Making Based on Expertise May Deliver Better Results Than Analytical Approach

Intuitive Decision-Making Based on Expertise May Deliver Better Results Than Analytical Approach | Intuition | Scoop.it
Intuition may be just as effective in decision-making as an analytical approach — and sometimes more efficient and effective, depending on the decision-maker's level of expertise on the subject at had, according to a new report in the Journal of Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes by researchers from Boston College, George Mason University and Rice University.

“It turns out intuition isn’t always bad and there are conditions where it is a good way to make the right decision,” said co-author Michael Pratt, the O’Connor Family Professor of Management and Organization at Boston College’s Carroll School of Management. “What we found demystifies a lot of the information out there that says intuition isn’t as effective as if you sat down and walked through an analytical approach.”

Testing intuition against analysis, Pratt and co-authors Erik Dane, of Rice University and Kevin W. Rockmann, of George Mason, found that people can trust their gut and rely on intuition when making a broad evaluation – one that doesn’t include a subset of additional decisions – in an area where they have in-depth knowledge of the subject, also referred to as domain expertise.

Das Hirn lernt nachts

Das Hirn lernt nachts | Intuition | Scoop.it

Mit der Zeitumstellung naht für so manchen auch ein Schlafproblem, zumindest kurzfristig. Doch genügend Schlaf ist nicht nur für die Gesundheit, sondern auch für Lernprozesse immens wichtig. Neue Studien zeigen, dass dabei sowohl die Traumphasen als auch der Tiefschlaf eine Rolle spielen.


Vor einer schwierigen Prüfung noch bis in die Puppen lernen? Das dürfte genau die falsche Strategie sein. Denn ausreichender und guter Schlaf ist wichtig, um Gelerntes zu festigen, soviel steht fest. Wie das jedoch im Detail passiert, ob der Traum-oder Tiefschlaf dafür den Ausschlag gibt, ist auch für Experten noch ein Rätsel. Denn das Gehirn bei Nacht ist wesentlich weniger durchleuchtet als das bei Tag. "Aber es arbeitet nachts mindestens ebenso kompliziert, wahrscheinlich sogar noch komplizierter", sagt Dieter Kunz, Chefarzt der Klinik für Schlafmedizin am St. Hedwig-Krankenhaus in Berlin........

Intuition: Typisch weiblich, typisch männlich? | Max-Planck-Gesellschaft | Intuition | Scoop.it
Die Intuition gilt traditionell als weiblich und wird der männlichen Vernunft gegenübergestellt. Doch existieren diese Stereotype nach wie vor? Glauben die Deutschen immer noch, dass Frauen bessere Intuition in Bezug auf Menschen haben als Männer? Diesen Fragen gingen Wissenschaftler um Gerd Gigerenzer am Max-Planck-Institut für Bildungsforschung nach. Wer hat die bessere Intuition – Frauen, Männer, oder gibt es keinen Unterschied? Diese Frage stellte eine Forschergruppe aus Berlin insgesamt 1.016 deutschen Frauen und Männern. Dabei ging es sowohl um das Privat- als auch das Berufsleben. Die Ergebnisse sind überraschend: Wenn es um die Wahl des richtigen Lebenspartners geht, ist die Mehrzahl der Frauen überzeugt, dass sie die bessere Intuition haben. Und die deutschen Männer stimmen ihnen zu. Lediglich 14 Prozent der Männer vertrauen ihrer eigenen Intuition bei der Partnersuche. Das gleiche Bild zeigt sich bei anderen persönlichen Fragen......

How Do Healthcare Providers Use Intuition? | Taking Charge of Your Health & Wellbeing | Intuition | Scoop.it

Psychiatrist Richard Friedman surprised himself one day during a routine appointment with a patient experiencing anxiety about a financial problem. Bothered by something in his patient Mark's appearance, Dr. Friedman "did something out of pure intuition that I didn't fully understand at the moment. I called his internist while he was in my office and sent him for an appointment a few hours later." Dr. Friedman was puzzled by his own gut reaction. He routinely encountered people suffering from anxiety and his patient had no previous history of medical illness. He was also worried about what his internist colleague would think—would he laugh? As it turned out Mark's internist did not have reason to laugh. Mark was not just suffering from anxiety, but health complications in his lung. Care began immediately and Mark's condition improved. How many healthcare professionals have similar experiences? If they do, how many are willing to admit it? And how would you have felt if you had been Mark? Would you have wanted to make a separate trip to an internist just based on Dr. Friedman's intuition? ....

Intuition in Problem Solving: A Compass

Intuition in Problem Solving: A Compass | Intuition | Scoop.it

Someone once said to me that you can’t find your way if you don’t know where you are. I countered that that would mean a compass would be useless to you. That’s not true. Unfortunately, when people talk about intuition in problem solving, then tend to think it should be as specific as cognition is. If it were, it wouldn’t be intuition. Intuition plays more of an introductory role in our thinking and behavioral processes. In this sense, our intuition acts as a compass. When we’re lost we have any number of directions to explore. A compass helps to narrow our selection. Intuition does the same in problem solving.....

Does intuition equal emotional intelligence?

Does intuition equal emotional intelligence? | Intuition | Scoop.it

There was an interesting article by Sarina Russo in the Weekend Australian (25/1/14) Extra sense that gives women an edge where she argues that emotional intelligence is equal to intuition. Sarina defines emotional intelligence as the capacity to recognise an opportunity and act on your gut feeling, even when you're inundated with facts, figures and adverse advice. She also argues that while men possess emotional intelligence, women use it much more effectively. I have frequently heard speakers argue, like Sarina, that the secret of emotional intelligence is to go with the flow. I disagree. Indeed, I believe the opposite holds true. Salovey and Mayer, who coined the term emotional intelligence, defined it as the ability to perceive, control, and evaluate emotions. Similarly, Daniel Goleman, in his widely accepted 4 step model of EQ, defines the second step as self-regulation or being able to control your emotions. The example he uses in his book, Emotional Intelligence, is the famous marshmallow study by Walter Mishel. It is the 10% of children who can delay self-gratification and not eat the marshmallow in front of them that subsequently succeed in life.......

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.....

Essen mit Herz - „Intuitives Essen“ geht mit einer guten Wahrnehmung und Beachtung der eigenen Körpersignale einher | Intuition | Scoop.it

Die Weihnachtsfeiertage sind vorbei und das neue Jahr hat begonnen. Tina hat nach der Festtagsschlemmerei und dem Silvesterfondue ein schlechtes Gewissen wegen ihrer zugenommenen Kilos. Ihrer Cousine geht es hingegen nicht so. Diese erzählt freudig: „Ich höre eben auf mein Bauchgefühl beim Essen“. Tina ist frustriert – ihr „Bauchgefühl“ wurde wohl von der schönen Atmosphäre und dem Anreiz des besonderen Essens überrollt. Tatsächlich unterscheiden sich Menschen darin, inwiefern sie beim Essen auf ihren Körper hören. Das Ausrichten des Essverhaltens nach inneren Hunger- und Sättigungssignalen wird in der Forschung als „intuitives Essen“ bezeichnet und in der Regel mit einem Fragebogen erfasst. Hierbei gibt man beispielsweise an, ob  man zu essen aufhört, wenn man sich voll fühlt, ob man aus Langeweile oder bei Stress isst (was negativ wäre) oder ob man auf seinen Körper beim Essen vertraut. Erste Studien zeigen, dass intuitives Essen mit einem gesunden Verhältnis zwischen Körpergewicht und Körpergröße (Body-Mass-Index, BMI) sowie mit persönlichem Wohlbefinden einhergeht.

How To Listen To Your Instincts (Your Brain Will Thank You)

How To Listen To Your Instincts (Your Brain Will Thank You) | Intuition | Scoop.it

Sure, we'd all love to trust our instincts—if only we could hear them. Martha Beck reveals how to quiet what you're thinking long enough to figure out what you actually feel.


"Listen to your intuition," they say. "Trust your gut." But what if you're so paranoid that you fret about a nuclear attack on rural Wyoming, or so optimistic that you watch Bambi over and over, certain that this time his mom will survive? What can you do to ensure that your true feelings aren't being distorted? The problem is that none of the folksy phrases telling us to trust our instincts explain what an "instinctive hunch" looks like. On top of this, we spend our whole lives being taught to override our intuition. We're taught to think things through, really think about it, give it some thought. News flash: Instincts aren't thoughts. They're grounded in feelings. And learning how to see through a thought-based reaction to the instinct beneath it is a powerful way to steer yourself toward a happy, healthy life......

Interview: "Trust intuition, try new things" are keys to success: Nobel laureate Arieh Warshel

STOCKHOLM, Dec. 6 (Xinhua) -- "Trust your intuition, and try new things" are the keys to success, said Arieh Warshel, 2013 Nobel laureate in chemistry, in an exclusive interview with Xinhua on Friday. Warshel met with Xinhua journalist in central Stockholm, where a busy Nobel week just started and will culminate in the Nobel Prize Award Ceremony and the Nobel Banquet on Tuesday. As an Israeli, Warshel is proud of his national identity which nurtured him the unique Israeli intuition: "knowing there is a way to do things and finding out how to do it." Warshel pointed out that Israelis also like to improvise, "if they don't have all the parts of something, they would take it apart from something else -- they could build an airplane from a tractor." It is essentially his "way of thinking and doing things with intuition and improvisation" that has contributed to his success. "My style of doing things has mostly been the Israeli style of improvisation, trying to guess how to do something and go and do it," said Warshel......

Insights, Innovation and Intuition

Insights, Innovation and Intuition | Intuition | Scoop.it


I've written here many times about the conflict that many innovators often face when called on to make definitive decisions about customer needs and the best ideas to pursue as new products and services.  We've noted that innovation requires - no demands - people who are comfortable operating in an ambiguous stew of information, research, trends, insights and customer needs.  Few of these data points are developed with any statistical rigor, yet together they must provide a direction for the team to follow. For people who are more familiar with stark differences and quantitative answers, this sea of ambiguity is very difficult to confront.  Faced with hazy information, inferences, wants and needs, they are quick to try to identify the "best" and most certain data in the mix, rather than find the most important trends or currents that all the research suggests.  We've managed over the last 30 years to train people to be very decisive when the data are clear, and to be very hesitant when the data aren't clear or definitive.  The most common refrain is: "how can you be certain"?  In innovation, the fact is that you often can't.  If the data were evident and certain, the data would be evident and certain to everyone, and a solution wouldn't be radical or disruptive because everyone would be building it.....

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, 12:33 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.

How do we really make decisions?

How do we really make decisions? | Intuition | Scoop.it

With every decision you take, every judgement you make, there is a battle in your mind - a battle between intuition and logic. And the intuitive part of your mind is a lot more powerful than you may think. Most of us like to think that we are capable of making rational decisions. We may at times rely on our gut instinct, but if necessary we can call on our powers of reason to arrive at a logical decision. We like to think that our beliefs, judgements and opinions are based on solid reasoning. But we may have to think again. Prof Daniel Kahneman, from Princeton University, started a revolution in our understanding of the human mind. It's a revolution that led to him winning a Nobel Prize. His insight into the way our minds work springs from the mistakes that we make. Not random mistakes, but systematic errors that we all make, all the time, without realising. Prof Kahneman and his late colleague Amos Tversky, who worked at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Stanford University, realised that we actually have two systems of thinking. There's the deliberate, logical part of your mind that is capable of analysing a problem and coming up with a rational answer......

Innovation - You’re Doing It Wrong: How To Put Intuition And Ideas Before Tests And Analyses | Intuition | Scoop.it

Douglas Van Praet describes how the unconscious and the emotional drive people, and how they, not tests, should drive the business of bringing ideas to life. He offers four ways to reframe the innovation process. There’s a costly misconception hindering innovation. Marketing models hold that strategic reasoning must always precede and inform emotional execution. Before we decide to try an idea, we must first prove its worth by conscious knowledge untainted by feeling. But neuroscience suggests this is not only wrong, it’s backwards. If “knowledge is power” we must understand cognition or the “process of knowing.” Cognitive science tells us that discoveries and decisions are made largely unconsciously. And feelings not reasoning come first. Emotions precede and inform rational understanding.....

Intuition Is Data

Intuition Is Data | Intuition | Scoop.it
Every creative and entrepreneurial venture starts with an idea. If you’re honest, the idea is almost always more of a question. Or many questions.

 

In order to take action, you’ve got to make guesses about the answers. We call those assumptions. Some of your assumptions will be spot on, others will be wildly off. The most important thing you can do in the early days is not try to succeed as fast as possible, but try to answer the most important questions as fast as possible. To replace assumptions with data. The faster you can make that transition and start to build around data over delusion, the better off you’ll be. And the more likely your success becomes. But here’s the funny thing about data. Some of it is hard, meaning it’s quantifiable. You can plug it into a spreadsheet. But some of it is soft, really soft. No way to plug stomach spins or intuitive hits into Excel. And because we like to be able to point to “why” we make decisions, especially decisions we might be judged for making down the road, we often ignore those soft data points. Because they don’t provide good cover. Don’t. Do. This. Two reasons. One. Hard-data lies. It’s always old, incomplete or fake. The reason the S.E.C requires every statement about a company’s future to include some variation of “past performance does not imply future results” is because it’s true. It doesn’t. People change, times change, circumstances change. The container of variables that made past outcomes possible will never be the same.......

Intuition is becoming more valuable to succeed

"Often you have to rely on intuition." — Bill Gates


We are all programmed to succeed. All of us have a special power within us called our intuition. It is an alternative source of knowledge, level of awareness, or as some refer to it, an inner voice. We all possess this power to varying degrees, as well as the capacity to develop it further. Intuition can be defined as a quick and ready insight. This insight can guide us, warn us of danger, and/or connect us to our creativity. The most successful people are often very intuitive. Consciously or unconsciously, they follow their gut feelings, which put them in the flow (a very alive, productive, and desirable state). Many have achieved remarkable success in the fields of science, business and entrepreneurship, often amassing great fortune and fame due to their abilities to make important decisions by following "hunches," or intuitive "gut feelings."  Great thinkers, like Albert Einstein, have emphasized the importance of intuition and its impact on their personal and professional lives. They defined it as "a superior knowledge," and as being an essential and indispensable tool for achieving success.........

By definition, intuition is a sense or feeling that cannot readily be explained away by conscious logical or rational thought.  It is an instinctive knowledge that triggers a particular response from you.   People who place great value on common sense and rationality are afraid of it.  Others swear by it.  But where does it come from?  And what if you were able to tune into it more frequently?  What if you were able to harness its power....

I’ve been speaking and writing about intuition for over twenty-five years. I’m passionate about the topic because I know it’s a valuable inner wisdom we possess and most of us under utilize it. One of the questions I’m asked most frequently is “How do I know it’s my intuition and not fear (ego, wishful thinking, habit of thought)?” I wish I had a simple answer. Wouldn’t it be great if the voice of your fear sounded like Darth Vader and the voice of intuition sounded like Alicia Keys?! That would be too easy! Intuition Has Many “Voices.” Intuition is quick and ready insight. It’s our inner compass. When we pay attention to it, it moves us towards success and happiness and away from danger. There are many ways to receive its wisdom. It may come as the proverbial “still, quiet, inner voice.” It may also communicate insight through a dream, feelings, a knowing or a gut feeling.  Think back to a decision you’ve made in the past. How did your intuition communicate its message?.....
