Harnessing the full potential of intuition allows us to be more alert to respond to the challenges of our swiftly transforming environment. Research made on Nobel Laureates and distinguished inventors reveals to us certain distinctive qualities and patterns of knowing which emerge when solving the impossible. People working with so-called “wicked problem solving” and with novel and radical innovation constantly report that their intuitive processes are profoundly based in a highly personal type of intuition. Cognitive science and psychology sees intuition as a continuum consisting of varying instincts and evolution-based intuitions and domain-specific intuitions like heuristics and experience-based automated tasks. The complexity of intuition results from its adhering to different knowledge bases in various fields. Further, the understanding of intuition as a monolithic phenomenon or a continuum consisting of manifold variables explicates only intuitions based on instincts, learning, and some types of expertise.
