The Science Behind Gut Feelings/Intuition

The Science Behind Gut Feelings/Intuition

Should you trust your intuition? Is there any scientific data on it? Turns out there is! As a Myers-Briggs INTJ (intuiting) person, I lean towards my intuition often.

This great little video shows that we have both fast (systematic) and slow (intuitive) thinking paths, often our bodies know things before our minds do,  and when NOT to trust your intuition.

Summary:

  • Intuition actually exists and is part of the ‘fast-thinking’ parts of our brain.
  • Our subconscious often knows things before our minds do, and it can be measured with skin response.
  • Following our intuition is usually associated with being happier with decisions later.
  • Our intuition isn’t good at empathy
