  15. 15. Creative Writing and Literature, Avinash Ravindran, St.Mary’s College Intuition • It is the ability to understand something instinctively, without the need for conscious reasoning. • The word intuition comes from the Latin verb intueri translated as "consider" or from the late middle English word intuit, • ‘to contemplate” • Intuition is a feeling or thought you have about something without knowing why you feel that way. It’s a function of the unconscious mind — those parts of your brain / mind, that you don’t consciously control or perceive. It’s synonymous with “hunch” or “gut feeling.”
  16. 16. Creative Writing and Literature, Avinash Ravindran, St.Mary’s College Intuition Example : Interpersonal intuition Interpersonal intuition is the ability to understand, just by instinct, what others are thinking and feeling. It’s one of the most useful life skills because it enables you to work well with others and build beneficial relationships. However, this sort of intuition is rarely used in philosophy.
