Intuition is as a natural human ability and a key dimension of the creative process, problem solving, and decision making. Highly developed intuition flows. Many scientists, artists, musicians, leaders, entrepreneurs have said they owed their greatest accomplishments to intuition. (Cooper, Robert K., PhD., and Ayman Sawaf. Executive EQ. p 298-214. NY: Grosset/Putnam 1997.)

Intuition tkes place due to interactions between the emotional brain, and the temporal lobes and right hemisphere of the neocortex. (Pearce, Joseph Chilton. The Biology of Transcendence. p 30-32. VT: Park Street Press, 2002.)

Imagination, along with creativity, and intuition, are qualities with emotional dimensions. They can lead to surviving, thriving, and serendipity. (Siebert, Al, PhD. The Survivor Personality. p 54-55. NY: A Perigee Book, 1996.)

Intuition is perception beyond the physical senses. It is closely tied to emotional intelligence and includes aspects of intelligence as well. Intuition services creativity: it is the sense that an idea that has never been tried might work. It unveils hidden possibilities. Intuition also serves inspiration. It is the sudden answer to a question. (Cooper, Robert K., PhD., and Ayman Sawaf. Executive EQ. p 42-43. NY: Grosset/Putnam 1997.)

Intuition works best when data from a gut sense are used to build on other kinds of data (e.g., if business plan looked good on paper but didn’t “feel right,” proceed with caution). (Goleman, Daniel, PhD, with Richard Boyatzis, and Annie Mckee. Primal Leadership. p 42-44. Boston: Harvard Business School Press, 2002.)
