What Is Intuition?
By Brad Bell
Intuition is an important concept. It is a concept in psychology, and it also can be considered a concept that is common knowledge. Intuition may be involved in making some decisions. Thus, it is important to define intuition. What is intuition? Below is one definition of intuition:
Intuition can be defined as the feeling of knowing something without being able to explain the basis of the feeling.
The above definition suggests that intuition is a feeling that you have about something, but you don't know how to explain why you feel that way. For example, imagine that you just had an interview for a job, and you have a negative feeling about the company. You have a strong feeling that you may be unhappy working for the company. You cannot explain or rationalize this feeling. You decide to not accept the job offer based on intuition.
