Unfounded, but interesting, allegations about intuition

“Intuition is defined as knowing without knowing how you know,” he explained. “That’s the wrong definition. Because by that definition, you cannot have the wrong intuition. It presupposes that we know, and there is really a prejudice in favor of intuition. We like intuitions to be right.”

According to Kahneman, a better definition — or a more precise one — would be that “intuition is thinking that you know without knowing why you do.” By this definition, the intuition could be right or it could be wrong, he added.

...there are three conditions that need to be met in order to trust one’s intuition.

The first is that there has to be some regularity in the world that someone can pick up and learn.

The second condition for accurate intuition is “a lot of practice”

And the third condition is immediate feedback.

Jung gives his definition of intuition at 4:24 of this video:

"So my definition of intuition is a perception by ways or means of the unconscious."  ~Carl Jung

or "unconscious cognition"

Introverted intuition is my primary function. ;)
"Show me a sane man and I will cure him for you."
~Carl Jung
