My significant other has astonishing powers of intuition; And I don't hesitate to use the word psychic.
I have learned to pay close attention to her "hunches"....We make a great team at the holdem or Omaha tables.
Sometimes intuition needs justification or an excuse to influence us.
Animals have instincts and we are the top of the animal kingdom our instincts are most likely superior too. If we were encouraged to developers them that is.
“Some of the best advice you’ll ever get will come from your gut instinct”. We’ve all heard expressions about trusting our gut and following our instincts, but now, science is finally giving us the evidence to support it.
Dubbed “The Second Brain” by Michael Gershon, Chairman of the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology at New York–Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center. The network of neurons that line our guts are filled with (over 100 million) neurotransmitters which to put it simply, do a lot more than simply digest our food
What Gershon found is that the enteric nervous system directly connects to the larger central system at the base of the skull, that assists in feeding information to our brains through the hypothalamus and pituitary, known as the Gut Brain Axis. This information exchange than helps to determine our mental state, as well as “playing a crucial role when it comes to disease in the body.”

Whether you call it a hunch, a sixth sense, or just a gut feeling — new research suggests it's important to pay attention to it. A new Cambridge University study, published in the the journal Scientific Reports, delves into understanding that gut feeling by focusing on financial traders. The study suggests stock traders who follow their own gut feelings make more profitable trades, and even have longer careers.
does creativity play a part in intuition?
they had a bad dream

If that's the case, I can thank my intuition for passing a lot of exams back in school then, in a period when I wasn't particularly very attentive
So in that case it's like just going for the option that inexplicably attracts you, rather then letting doubt control your choice?
If you percieve thoughts that you have, you may end up understanding the thoughts of others
