Studies: When you engage not only the analytical mind but also emotions and intuition, your senses and emotional intelligence enable you to scan in moments through hundreds of possible choices or scenarios to arrive at the best solution in a matter of seconds instead of hours—the answer will be as good or better than if you relied solely on intellect.
