Ever had a hunch, a “gut feeling” about something? Often this intuition process proves to be much more accurate than a normal linear thinking process. Why?
I suggest that this is the result of a pattern recognition capacity inherent within our mind. It seems that our subconscious mind is continuously organizing and grouping stimuli into relevant patterns. When faced with situations that trigger previously recognised and organised patterns, our intuition is invoked.
The result – we often anticipate what comes next with surprising accuracy.
When I have overridden these “gut feelings”, I seem to have paid a price every time. Is that your experience too?
