Why Does Forbes Call Intuition the Highest Form of Intelligence?
Gerd Gigerenzer, a director at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development and author of the book, “Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious”, claims to be both intuitive and rational: Intuition itself does not equal intelligence, but intuition with action most certainly can be intelligent. You have probably said it to yourself before, I knew that was the answer; I should have gone with my first instinct. You see, this is an example of how your intuition often knows what your conscious mind does not. But just as Gigerenzer says, he tests his first instinct to see if it was correct and often it is. So, intuition does hold some form of intelligence.
So, despite often having that great idea, do you find that you have a difficult time trusting this answer or path is correct? The amazing thing about intuition is that it can be thought of as a muscle. Every time you use it and trust it, it becomes stronger. So, if you feel your intuition isn’t very clear, try strengthening this muscle. Next time, act on the first idea that comes your way. For example, I had plans to meet a friend, but her phone died, and I had to go home to grab something before I picked her up. I was circling the area in which I was supposed to meet her, but she was nowhere to be found. My intuition kept saying, “Go to Green Cuisine, she’ll be there”, but my mind was telling me, “Don’t go there, it’ll be a hassle to find parking, and it’s doubtful she’ll even be there”. By the time she got her phone charged and gave me a call, I found out that she too had an intuitive feeling to go to the restaurant and that’s where she had been waiting. Had I trusted this feeling right off the bat, I could have saved myself a lot of time and stress.
Try acting on the first thought you have and see how often it leads you where you need to go, or gives you the right answer. You may be pleasantly surprised.
You know when you get that “gut feeling” that maybe something isn’t right? That is your intuition, and while we feel it in our gut or stomach area, many people often argue it comes from the heart. I recently watched an incredible documentary called “The Power Of The Heart” that explained how this feeling is actually coming from the heart, and the heart is always the first to react to any given situation. The heart intuitively knows what is up. – pa’ris’ha
