10 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently

10 Things Highly Intuitive People Do Differently | Bounded Rationality and Beyond | 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.

Intuitive Decision Making: How to Identify Fear vs Intuition

Intuitive Decision Making: How to Identify Fear vs Intuition | Bounded Rationality and Beyond | Scoop.it

One of the biggest challenges people have with intuitive decision making is how to differentiate between fear and intuition. Learn how to tell the difference. 

A major part of the process of intuitive decision making is learning how to differentiate between your emotions and your pure, intuitive voice.  In my experience, I can identify intuition more by feeling than by emotion.  Emotion is secondary in the process, in that it can arise from a feeling and in this way be related to and directly stem from ones intuition.  However, our intuitive voices speaks to us in sudden flashes of insight, which usually move at a much faster pace than emotions, which always arise in reaction to thoughts, experiences or our perceived reality.

Therefore, if you are feeling fear, it is almost always a sign that whatever intuitional message may have been present has likely been surpassed and lost as one moves into more habitual patterns of reacting to a given stimuli, thought, or situation.  Fear tends to muddy the waters, as do many emotions, in terms of intuition.  Again, intuition comes more in the form of feelings such as hesitation, feeling compelled to do or say something, knowing, insight, revelation, vision, sudden awareness of an idea or thought and so on.  There is also typically a physical component such as a going weak or strong feeling, gut reaction, etc.  As you learn to trust yourself more deeply, the intuitive voice becomes stronger and more noticeable.  At first it can be hard to identify.  Using self-trust building affirmations can greatly speed up the process.

Intuitive intelligence in leadership

Intuitive intelligence in leadership | Bounded Rationality and Beyond | 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.....

Deepen Your Intuition

Although intuition is something everyone has, you must cultivate it to receive the maximum benefit. Here are five tips to help you access and use your intuition to greater effect.

Use meditation to deepen your intuition. Regular meditation will help you clear your mind of distractions, as well as teach you how to better recognize the subtle impulses from within. As you become more attuned to your inner world, you’ll be able to more quickly and easily pick out the sound of your higher self or higher power speaking to you through words, images and sensations.

Make time to listen. Life is busy, and in the rush to achieve our tasks and goals, it’s easy to forget to stop and tune into our higher wisdom. Devote time every day – and even multiple times each day – to consciously giving your intuition center stage.

Ask questions. Don’t be passive when communicating with your intuition. Step up and ask for answers to the questions you are struggling with.

Write down your answers. Intuitive impressions are subtle and can “evaporate” quickly. Neuroscience research indicates that intuitive insights not captured within 37 seconds will likely never be recalled again. Many people find journal writing to be a highly effective way to access their intuition. Try it – you’ll be amazed at the clarity of what comes through.

Take immediate action. When you act on the information you receive, you’ll find that you get more and more intuitive impulses. After a while, you’ll be living in flow. Intuition works best when we trust it. The more you demonstrate faith in your intuition, the more you will reap the rewards. Whether you want to make more money, make better decisions, solve problems more quickly, or create winning plans, tuning into your intuition will help you achieve your goals. Trusting your intuition is trusting yourself. The more you trust yourself, the more success you will have.

The neurological basis of intuition

The neurological basis of intuition | Bounded Rationality and Beyond | Scoop.it

 

Most of us have experienced the vague feeling of knowing something without having any memory of learning it. This phenomenon is commonly known as a “gut feeling” or “intuition”; more accurately though, it is described as implicit or unconscious recognition memory, to reflect the fact that it arises from information that was not attended to, but which is processed, and can subsequently be retrieved, without ever entering into conscious awareness. According to a new study, our gut feelings can enhance the retrieval of explicitly encoded memories – those memories which we encode actively – and therefore lead to improved accuracy in simple decisions. The study, which is published online in Nature Neuroscience, also provides evidence that the retrieval of explicit and implicit memories involves distinct neural substrates and mechanisms. The distinction between explicit and implicit memory has been recognized for centuries. We know, from studies of amnesic patients carried out since the 1950s, that implicit memories can influence behaviour, because such patients can learn to perform new motor skills despite having severe deficits in other forms of memory. Thus, the term implicit memory refers to the phenomenon whereby previous experience, of which one is not consciously aware, can aid performance on specific tasks. Ken Paller of Northwestern University and Joe Voss, who is now at the University of Urbana-Champaign in Illinois, set out to investigate further the influence of implicit recognition on decision-making, and used electroencephalography (EEG) to try to identify the brain activity associated with it. 12 healthy participants were presented with kaleidoscopic images under two different conditions. In one set of trials, they paid full attention to the images, and then perform what is referred to as a forced-choice recognition test, in which they were shown another set of images and asked to decide whether or not they had seen each of them before. In the other condition, they were made to perform a working memory task whilst the initial first set of images were presented to them – they heard a spoken number and were asked to keep it in mind, so that during the next trial they could indicate whether it was even or odd. Thus, in these trials, their attention was diverted away from the stimuli.....

What Is Intuition?

What Is Intuition? | Bounded Rationality and Beyond | Scoop.it

Intuition is not a different level of perception. Intuition is only a different dimension of computing. For example, to find out which day of the week the June 1 will fall on, you would take out a piece of paper and a pen and start calculating. It may take eight to 10 steps, but if you are intuitive, you will not go to through these steps. You will just arrive at the answer.

New Evidence for Intuition - May Not Be What You Think

New Evidence for Intuition - May Not Be What You Think | Bounded Rationality and Beyond | Scoop.it

According to Lehrer, when we try to be logical, we consciously engage a powerful area of the brain, the pre-frontal cortex. This is the area that associates perceptions and relates cause-and-effect information to create meaning. Conscious attention is limited, however. We can only pay attention to a handful of variables at the same time. Also, being consciously logical is a slow process.

The Value of Intuition

The Value of Intuition | Bounded Rationality and Beyond | Scoop.it

 

Anyone with any kind of spiritual sensibility cannot fail to be aware that a profound change is underway, very, very slowly, in the attitude [re:spirituality and intuition] that an increasing number of people have to one another and to our earthly environment. We have to look back to the 1960s and 1970s for the start of the cultural revolution. Before this, the world was recovering from the second of two world wars in half a century; few people expressed any interest in the welfare of the environment or knew anything much about the mystical faiths of the east. This change in attitude has formed part of the general acknowledgement that the spiritual domain is of profound importance in our everyday lives.

 

Two minds: the conscious mind and the unconscious mind

 

We’ve all used – and heard others use – the expression of being ‘in two minds’. As with many other long-established sayings, there is much wisdom in this phrase. For several centuries now, science has held that the mind is simply the name we give to the workings of the brain. However, over the past century, scientists have come to realize that this is only part of the truth. It is true that the brain interprets the input of our five senses – an operation that we can still regard as a function of the rational or conscious mind. But, as Sigmund Freud realized, humankind also possesses an unconscious mind that holds the data we accumulate about the world until we need to use it and also gives expression to our emotions.......

Harnessing Your Intuition - How to Hear That 'Inner Still Small Voice'

Harnessing Your Intuition - How to Hear That 'Inner Still Small Voice' | Bounded Rationality and Beyond | Scoop.it

In order to access our inner wisdom or intuition, it is important to understand that we all have inner senses or intuitive capabilities. However, we may each experience our intuition in different ways. Some will tend to use clairsentience (“clear feeling”) where they will just “know ” the answer or feel it in their “gut” or in their “heart”. Others will use clairvoyance (“clear vision”) where they will receive an intuitive message through a vision, symbol or an image in their mind. And yet others may experience their inner sense as clairaudience (“clear hearing”) where they hear the answer as if by telepathy (this is not an hallucination). With practice a person can easily develop access to all 3 types of inner senses – it is much the same as building up a muscle at the gym. The more you use it, the more powerful and easily it flows. Going within through one of various forms or meditation, a quiet prayerful state, or sitting quietly in nature is the best means to cultivate your inner space to access your inner ‘still small voice’. We also can gain immediate access to our intuition in a busy, wakeful state whenever we are in our heart with great compassion or concern for a friend or a loved one. Have you ever noticed how easy it is to receive intuitive information when you are getting it for someone else?! It is easier to get into our heart or to have compassion for someone else than it is to do so for our selves. What keeps us from getting into our heart for our self to receive intuitive messages? We are limited in our ability to connect whenever we experience a sense of unworthiness (feeling unloved, guilty, ashamed), abandonment, anger or resentment, heartache, inadequacy or powerlessness, fear of the unknown, stress, or when we lose sight of who we really are. Once we remove these barriers (we give guided meditations as well as rapid tools and techniques to assist in our books Shift: 12 Keys to Shift Your Life and Shift: A Woman’s Guide to Transformation), it is important to establish new habits of heartfelt connectedness so that you can rapidly tap into the Universal Wisdom that lies within each of us......

Your Intuition Is Your Answer

Your Intuition Is Your Answer | Bounded Rationality and Beyond | Scoop.it

"When you know, you know."


I never understood this quote, until I understood it.


Nine years ago, I stood in the doorway of the house in which I currently live, and declared, "I'm home," without ever stepping foot inside.

One month later, I moved in.

 

Two and a half years ago, I visited my friend at her studio for a massage. Afterwards, she asked if I wanted to see the only available space on the property (which had just been listed for rent). I didn't know why I wanted to see it, until I knew.

 

I paused in the doorway, groggy from body work and stated, "This is my yoga studio." A week later, I signed a lease.

 

I know when I have arrived home. We all do. There is a clear difference between impulse and intuition. Impulsive action leads to a stampede of second guessing, the feeling of being out in the cold, confused and indecisive. The aftershocks of impulse may take a while to appear, but they always do. Intuitive action leads us home, without a doubt in our minds, we are safe-inside of ourselves....

4 Reasons to Develop Practical Intuition

4 Reasons to Develop Practical Intuition | Bounded Rationality and Beyond | Scoop.it

 

Intuition is emerging from a cloud of mystery. Once considered a gift bestowed on only a few, intuition is becoming recognized as a natural skill that anyone can develop. Everyone is born with the capacity for intuition—the ability to know something without knowing how you know. Intuitive perception plays an important, yet often unconscious role in everyday decision-making. Many people rely on what they call a hunch, heart feeling, gut feeling or just a sense of “inner knowing” in making decisions in business, medical diagnosis, law enforcement, sports, relationships, driving defensively, parenting, teaching, and more.
