Trust your intuition

Intuition might well complain, "I don't get no respect." This imaginative and playful, associative aspect of intellectual functioning is usually ignored and neglected by the serious scholars, psychologists and researchers. It is viewed as "soft" and unreliable. Our culture frowns on decision-making which relies upon intuition. "Shooting from the hip!" is the allegation.

Intuition is especially well suited for the challenge of coping with chaotic and rampant innovation. The hard edge of reason and analysis freezes up when confronted by discontinuous and turbulent change. Logic does not cope well with surprise and chaos.
