StrengthFinder2.0, by Tom Rath, recommends the following to anyone who experiences Connectedness:
Don’t spend too much time attempting to persuade others to see the world as a linked web. Be aware that your sense of connection is intuitive. If others don’t share your intuition, rational argument will not persuade them.
Charles Parkhurst says,
“All great discoveries are made by people whose feelings run ahead of their thinking.”
Donald Miller writes on his blog,
“Intuition is really about pattern recognition, about subconsciously picking up on conflicting patterns in a situation.”
Good.is Design asks “How Might We Leverage Informed Intuition for Decision-making?”
And this is where the power of networks comes into the picture. By using a network of knowledgeable experts, each of whom is good at recognizing a certain type of pattern that works, you can ultimately catch many more of the types of things that will succeed. Call it “network intuition” if you will—building on the cumulative pattern recognition of multiple expert perspectives to create a more systematic way of using intuition.
A networked approach to intuition also allows you to eliminate some of the error and bias that can creep into intuitive judgments. It’s possible to see the flaws when you’re using logical reasoning, but it’s almost impossible to catch mistakes and biases in your intuition. By compiling the perspectives of a network of advisors, you can begin to filter out some of the specific biases that might taint a single individual’s intuition. [ Scoop.it ]
Albert Einstein tells us,
“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.”
Malcolm Gladwell writes in Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking
“When should we trust our instincts, and when should we consciously think things through? Well, here is a partial answer. On straightforward choices, deliberate analysis is best. When questions of analysis and personal choice start to get complicated—when we have to juggle many different variables—then our unconscious thought processes may be superior.”
Lao Tzu says,
“A good artist lets his intuition lead him wherever it wants.”
Glistening Deepwater writes in Reflection on the Edge
As a resource to all those who are activating new paradigms and applications of such emergent thinking it is imperative that an intuitive interface be developed which can scale to any requirement for access. This interface will also require in itself the capacity to learn, evolve, and contribute to the project as it unfolds.
