My definition of intuition was too simplistic. On my radio show I argued with Diane Brandon that it was merely the balance of the emotional brain to the errors of the cortical brain. Both means of processing information were vulnerable to error, but cortical, allegedly rational thinking, was considered the epitome of evolutionary thinking. My point was that intuition got bad press because it seemed that it was the main method women used to solve problems. It was men’s power over our institutions that contributed to this ignorance. I was trying to prove that it was necessary for everyone to recognize the power our emotional brain had over any decision and not believe we could ignore what our limbic brain was telling us. However, my definition was too limited. Diane’s has expanded mine by replacing it with hers. “Intuition is the accessing of information through means other than our customary logical mode—our intellect—or our five recognized senses. It’s a way of knowing things without going through the intellect or the five tangible senses or how we normally experience and know things in life.” Does it totally bypass the cortical brain? We’ll discuss this today. She says,”Intuition helps us make decisions, to solve problems. add more resources for information, to find and strengthen our inner voice and inner knowing and give us:more self-confidence and have empowering effects; better insight into others; better relationships. to be present in the moment,leads to greater objectivity and clearer perception and to be less reactive.Her Cautions and Tips are excellent.
