Intution

  1. 1. Intuition The heart has its reasons which reason does not know. Pascal, 1670. He that trusteth his own heart is a fool. Proverbs 28:36 How much do we know at any time? Much more, or so I believe, than we know we know! Agatha Christie, The Moving Finger Nothing is so difficult as not deceiving onself. Ludvig Wittgenstein
  2. 2. Intuition: does it exist? General consensus that it exists but we have been wrong before. . . . . earth is flat . . . sun travels around earth. . . .

  7. 7. Intuition: is it learned or innate? Has implications for training and assessment learning genetics Area of the individual needs H X W to exist
  8. 8. Intuition: what is it? Immediate insight without observation or reason Perception-like, rapid, effortless cognition leading to action Social intuition: sensing that something is not right Unconscious learning Complex pattern recognition Myers, D. G. (2002). Intuition: Its Powers and Perils . New Haven: Yale University Press.

  10. 10. Precedence exists “ However, the conviction remains that whenever we do use vision to become aware of objects or events, this must be accompanied by a corresponding visual experience. . . .The experiments reported here show that this belief is incorrect. In particular, some observers can consciously feel (or sense) a change in their surroundings even though they no visual experience of it. . . . “
  11. 11. “ Forty naïve observers were tested. Observers viewed the display and were asked to press a response key twice. The first response was to be given when they sense a change – that is, had a “feeling” that a change was occurring. The second response key was to be given when they saw the change – that is, had a visual experience sufficient for a verbal description of the changing item. . . .” Rensink, R. A. (2004). Visual Sensing Without Seeing. Psychological Science, 15 , 27-32.
  12. 12. Intuition: in controlled settings? Priming studies: Present a word on a screen (e.g., “bread”) too briefly for people to be able to verbally report the word – Then flash either “bubble” or “butter” briefly but slow enough that people can see it: Will see butter more easily (faster) than bubble Primed the word butter with a cue that person could not report seeing.
  13. 13. Intuition: how can we research it? Descriptive studies: Who : experienced vs rookie men and women equally? bad guys and good guys When: repeated or seldom ET “ instantaneous” vs. slow realization Where: alone or with partner situations of high/low risk situations of high/low emotions at work or “all the time” with constant or with changing environments
  14. 14. <ul><li>Intuition: how can we research it? </li></ul><ul><li>Retrospective studies: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Self-report . . . . . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>memory </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>reporting requirements </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>feedback </li></ul></ul>Talking through; think aloud
  15. 15. <ul><li>Intuition: how can we research it? </li></ul><ul><li>Co relational studies: </li></ul><ul><li>Implicit and unconscious, but depends on the 5 senses </li></ul><ul><li>Emotional (gut feeling) but has strong cognitive component </li></ul><ul><li>Error prone but do we ever say, “I just had a feeling in my gut…that I was wrong about this?” </li></ul><ul><li>Slow to learn and hard to unlearn </li></ul><ul><li>Some people are just good at it, but develops with experience </li></ul><ul><li>Accessible to verbal articulation but self-report is fallacious </li></ul><ul><li>Leads to action except sometimes intuition is to not act </li></ul><ul><li>Occurs in split-second situations and develops slowly across time </li></ul><ul><li>Look for presence or absence of one to occur with presence or absence of the other: e.g., does intuition occur more often under stress or calm? </li></ul>
  16. 16. Intuition: how can we research it? Experimental studies: Manipulate antecedents and measure behavior E.g., person observes complex scene (with low or high density of cues) and track eye movement as a function of the cues moving around in that environment. Vary the characteristics of the person – test the expert as well as the novice.
  17. 17. “ Signal” “ Response” Present Absent No Yes Have no intuition and do not act. Have intuition and do not act. Have no intuition and still act. Have intuition and act on it.
