The intuition is fast and frugal. Imagine you are driving along the road. All of the sudden quick thinking and a few sudden maneuvers prevent life-threatening accidents. You will never know that what made you decide in that way in a split of a second but you did and survived. Or Think that you are playing blackjack at the casino and tendering that one card is either win or a bust, but still you use a hunch in the fast-paced thrill-filled environment. When stakes are very high, things are moving quickly, and the person has to make sense of lots of random and confusing information in a brief time, the brain uses two distinct strategies in those situations. According to research, the brain starts with the most familiar, well learned and conscious strategy. This is logical and definitive but slow to react in time. The brain quickly switches to intuition in time sensitive, swiftly moving and casual information environment. So basically hunch is a system in which our mind reaches conclusions immediately without conscious acknowledgment.
So, How those hunches develop? No, it is not an overnight development. The practice of conscious, logical and observational learning is essential to develop accurate premonition in a brief period of time. There was a story about how a drifter who never saw a camel, but he described the characters so well. He described based on observations of footprints and partially chewed-up desert grass. That story made an impact on me, and I trained myself to observe everything around me. In any event, the question, why this could have happened? And search for an answer led me to unlock a considerable treasure box to learn and get information about any event and any person around me. Here what I discover about intuition. Practice compassionate observation, Every chance is a new window to a person’s life. The constant attempt to dig down even more unspoken information based on subtle changes in body language or assumption of any backstage situation of an event. Followed by attempting hard to verify if possible. Along the way to get more information out of any subtle changes, The practice of learning to observe very carefully, I developed a skill of intuition and practicing days in and out, any chance I get. I casually scan the entire restaurant while waiting for food and start observing people and assuming their situation, if they are on a date, or a casual dinner or a business meeting. Furthermore, I feel the overall feel during lunch, for example, awkward, or pleasant or tense. I would not worry about fact-checking my assumption; instead, I enjoy observing. If I am watching the restaurant staff, I occasionally fact check directly by asking them. This practice helped me to develop empathy about others. I feel a step closure to the person I am observing, by knowing their immediate emotions and situation. I can match vibes of any person and start a conversation with a sense of familiarity. Some people fear that others are talking behind their back. Observing people around you subtly and compassionately, and you will discover that you have nothing to worry about and others are not thinking about you anyways. This is an unexpected benefit to fend off the idea of reference and regain confidence. Empathetic observation entails beaming self-thoughts. It compares self with any superior behaviour and leads to self-improvement. If you are more aware of self-thoughts and feelings, more tender, the response becomes and more intuitive ability appear. Anyone can acquire intuition. It is not a psychic or superior power. Intuition is a kind of intelligence built on and operates upon logic, analysis, and rationalization over the period of a long time. Everyone with a normal functioning frontal lobe in the brain has that hunch. It is just utterly ignored and easily bullied by human nature to rationalize anything and overlooked by critical doubt. Those naturally inclined to openness and to accept anything even without any evidence harbour more clairvoyance. The empathy and spirituality, to some extent, play a role in developing intuition. Intuition also being researched and developed as a survival skill. It is merely an educated guess based upon experience, a judgment made on a split of a second precisely in the battlefield or during driving, just before involving into the accident. Intuition is usually right. Its informed judgment fails it! The most significant problem is, intuition always gives a hunch without any explanation. We identify it during crisis and peril. It provides preconscious that you don't understand and saves a life. There are plenty of chances of intuition on a day to day life. We evaluate all opportunities based on informed judgments and do not just act on a hunch, because those instincts do not provide the intellect. For example, when you start to travel, in the beginning, you have a knack that something may go wrong, and still, you continue to execute the plan. There is no scientific explanation in that. The notion gives you the nudge or hesitation or signals to do something different way but missing conscious interpretation is WHY! It can tell you something may be wrong in the future but doesn't tell you WHAT! These conundrums make it hard to believe, follow or to act based on just an idea because they make no sense. In short, it is not a good or a bad idea to follow instinct or analytic decisions unless if you use either of them in inappropriate and context. In day to day life, it is a good idea not to ignore intuition but at the same time not to accept outright without analytic thinking if we have appropriate timing and energy to put things together. We need both a premonition and actual reasoning to make the optimum possible decision for ourselves, and everything around us. Merely setting hunches in words and looking for logic, defining and rationalizing that thought can guide the best decision making in a long-term period.
