Intuition Definition: 

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.
