Intuition is the ability to come to a conclusion without actively reasoning through it. It is a connection between the consciousness and the subconscious that is accomplished without active thought. It is often referred to as a “gut-feeling.” Intuition can help with customer service, when looking beyond the surface information and getting to the heart of the issue is the key. Intuition can indicate a problem, even if the paperwork says everything is ok. Intuition is also helpful in deciding a good time to ask for a raise or vacation and in dealing with coworkers.
