What is intuition? The term intuition (from Late Latin intuitiō a contemplation, from Latin intuērī to gaze upon) is traditionally used to describe the ability to obtain information from without, foreknowledge, the sixth sense, flash of illumination, abrupt finding of a solution that would normally have to be reached by dint of long inference.
Intuition is an immediate form of knowledge in which the knower is directly acquainted with the object of knowledge. Intuition differs from all forms of mediated knowledge, which generally involve conceptualizing the object of knowledge by means of rational/analytical thought processes.
"Intuition is the clear conception of the whole at once." Johann Kaspar Lavater
"Listen to your intuition. It will tell you everything you need to know." Anthony D Angelo
"What I am actually saying is that we need to be willing to let our intuition guide us, and then be willing to follow that guidance directly and fearlessly." Shakti Gawain
"All human knowledge thus begins with intuitions, proceeds thence to concepts, and ends with ideas." Immanuel Kant
