Intuition can be described as accessing things we have previously learned,
without realizing we have learned them. For example, if we have learned through
past experience who we like and who we trust, then when we meet new people we
have a gut instinct on whether we trust a person or not. Consequently, intuitive
people are commonly considered empathetic and can sense the feelings or thoughts
Sometimes paying attention to what we feel to be true even without conscious
reasoning can lead us to the right decision or the right direction. Intuition is
a gut instinct, insight and conviction, based on our immediate thoughts and
apprehension. It is the ability to grasp information or the situation without any
reasoning or rationality.
Intuition is a type of inner knowledge we all possess, yet we tend to let our
intellect take over in the workplace and in most situations. The difference of
being intuitive or not is whether we listen to our gut feelings and act on them
or not. Some people do not pay attention to it, others use it every day.
