Professional Intuition In Decision-Making

According To The Spirit Of Our Times

Part I., Chapter 1

Introduction

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift."

—Albert Einstein [Institute of Noetic Sciences, Petaluma, CA]

„My wife called me and asked me not to board the plane, but to take the next one, as she really does not have a good feeling about it. Half an hour after I called her, that everything is fine.. We just had to take a routine landing without engines as the majority of the instrument panel stopped functioning.”

 

Who did not meet with such or similar cases? In this series of article though, we aim to find answers and tools to be able to apply intuition not only in our personal life situations, but also to consciously utilize it in our decision-making process as well. Our aim is not only to have sometimes sudden feelings of realization in case instead of the business indicators something does not round. We wish to find applicable knowledge and useful tools to be able to develop our intuition to the level, where it becomes a trustworthy companion in our decision-making process.

 

Topic discussed in this series of articles can only be understood by examining the nature of intuition from several perspectives. Before we dive into it though, it may be useful to define, what we understand under intuition?

 

Intuition, when treated separately from the scientific definition, can be described as an inner voice, a sense of insight, a sense of anticipation, a sixth sense, a glimpse into the future, listening to our hearts, or even a spontaneous idea.
We have all heard of the long-called mystic, "cloud-derived" ability, which over time has been questioned my many, until, as I have experienced more and more in my nearly twenty years of professional research, science – based on its rigorous evidence - has voted on the benefit of the existence, relevance and development of intuition.

 

Many of us who take responsibility for the progressive development of our society and our common future and as well because of our own intrinsic need, we necessarily have a wide range of knowledge that make us able to fulfill our endeavors. We are not only expanding our knowledge of areas that improve our leadership skills, but we also open our focus to more and more information from other disciplines hungry for new information. The wider our perspective is, the broader aspects of decisions are considered. Our integrative approach has slowly evolved and has become a prerequisite for understanding the essence of complex-, multi-factor-, multi-disciplinary structures, comparing their features and information, and combining their benefits into a strategically inclusive solution. Meeting the needs of these evolving trends in leadership, Systems Thinking has become a new-, independent-, supportive science.

 

Integrative Systems Thinking says, that it is worth examining every single effecting factor that can influence our decision in any way. In the field of analysis and leadership decision, it expands our interest towards aspects that have not been considered till now. In the field of human resource strategy, it gives a greater insight into the "chemistry" of human connections, i.e. analyzing the quality of personal and community sympathy, team spirit, the feeling of working together (morphogenetic fields), and broadens our interest in the direction of emerging emotions and insights (intuition). As our interest expanded; beyond the compulsory knowledge, we were able to admire the advocates who, while not only thinking in everyday conceptual or intellectual structures, devoted considerable time to developing and interpreting their revolutionary ideas of synthesis, coherence, holism and totality that resulted their life work better.

 

The exceptional thought of Aristotle, Freud, Kant and Jung, or the revolutionary concepts of Niels Bohr or David Böhm, Nikola Tesla's beyond-conceptual innovations, technically forward thinking of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, Mahathma Gandhi's or the Dalai Lama's idealistic and other-minded attitude, contentment-related papers of economist Daniel Kahneman and Robert Skidelsky, George Lucas’s and the Wachowskis’ cinematic art can also be classified here.

The most respectable aspect in the lives of these noble people is that they aim to increase awareness about how to expand human consciousness and capabilities. The majority of well-known thinkers emphasize the importance of intuition in the course of their lives.

We find our really exciting notion of intuition at the roots of our childhood. In the cinema, we watched Hollywood sci-fi as Star Wars, and marveled about the intuitive insights and abilities of Master Yoda, Luke Skywaker, and Darth Vader.
How great it would be to mentally communicate, as Charles Xavier Professor does from X-Men - quite a few of us thought. So many of us want to own this gem of abilities ourselves, as well.

Just as we see in certain cinematic arts of experience, in some worlds, citizens aquire doctorate-level knowledge in each major subject exists. Similarly, we humans can do the same as well. This way, we could extract the integrative essence and avoid to have the situation that “the left hand does not know what the right hand does”.

Thus, we are going to dive into the seven main sciences we selected: Economics, Quantum Physics, Biology, Sociology, Philosophy, Psychology and Healthy Sustainability (Well-being). When it turns out that all seven approaches of mental tendencies point to the same universal essence as the five doors of a house, then there will be noting left for us to do, just to turn our minds and attention to study this essential element with all enthusiasm and power we have.

 

Many of us want to know, what this same universal essence is? We are interested in the meat of the hamburger. The universal essence is, that the nature of reality-, the world we experience is fully interconnected with- or springs from our own mental tendencies. The only and main criteria to understand and to enfold our intuition, is nothing else, than to collect the widest and at the same time most substantial information possible, and to place them into practice as fast as possible.

As time passes by, another value memetics starts to evolve and develop in us (the Spiral Dynamics 'Turquoise' v-meme), that shows us that being able to create worldwide or even universally integrated systems is not enough by itself.

There must exist a quality-, a guiding insight that can look through the everyday-, habit-based consciousness, that cap provide a clear-cut guidance about what type of systems we shall initiate to create. This is what the art of enfolding our intuition offers to us.

The exceptional thoughts of several philosophers and psychologists as K.Jung, or the revolutionary concepts of Niels Bohr or David Böhm, Nikola Tesla's beyond-conceptual innovations, technically forward thinking of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, Mahathma Gandhi's or the Dalai Lama's idealistic and other-minded attitude, contentment-related papers of economist Daniel Kahneman and Robert Skidelsky, George Lucas’s and the Wachowskis’ cinematic art can also be classified here.

With some idealistic exaggeration, the writer of this article wishes the Dear Reader to consider the following as the best news of this day: the very existence of intuition is scientifically proven, it is real, and especially useful not only at home but also in business. Moreover, it can be developed, similarly as learning to read.

Since there is a significant lack of knowledge and appetite for knowledge in the subject of intuition, to satisfy this need this series of articles has been written. Feel free to call this a free-of-charge – "basic intuition course" that will eventually lead to the understanding and successful application of our own intuition. We learn to develop it, integrate it into your daily life and into our leadership decisions.

For the sake of the ladies, as an allegory of the study of intuition, we draw a parallel with a water lily flower.

SUMMARY

How does a series of articles build a scientific understanding of intuition, its tangible benefits in decision-making, and the development of this valuable ability?

 

Part I. (7 Articles): In what areas does intuition affect us? - or the water lily petals of intuition

Intuition is a factor that pervades almost every area of our lives. First, we highlight some of the factors that are considered relevant to the topic, to have a multi-sided intellectual approach about it (as well). In this series of articles we first take a look into how intuition interweaves the fields of economics, physics, biology, psychology, philosophy and medicine. Step by step we slowly unfold the petals of our water lily.

 

Part II. (3 Articles): The morphogenetic field - the ocean of water lily of intuition

In this article bouquet we examine how and where intuition appears and why it carries the same capacity for all of us? We get to know the nature of the ocean or lake where the water lily unfolds. We examine through a series of examples the effects of the morphic field on our bodies, our biology, and we see ways of how they can be applied at the level of global projects to predict or modify events in time.

 

Part III. (7 Articles): Developing intuition - or the water lily garden of intuition

Here, we learn how we may develop this mental capacity to an automated level skill, similar to the other skills? How to prepare, clean and decorate the lily-lake of our decisions to be able to sense the fragrant of the water lilies of our intuition?
