When does one know when to initiate a decision – and what makes a decision intuitive? This one moment, this moment of inception is hard to qualify. Perhaps the decision already exists. Or perhaps the intuition was impulsive, but correct.
In my work, I tend towards analyzing a person’s psychology first. Are they wanting approval? Are they fearing abandonment? Are they bargaining for a loss to be returned? All these basic motivators, these life experiences, will allow you to see how you make decisions. Are they based on protecting your interests or others’? If they are based on another’s interest it may be logic as this may be for validation, peer approval, but if oneself only, intuition.
There seems to be people who are protective and sometimes aggressively so, and those that heal and nurture. These two different types of personality types would also affect the type or quality of decision making. So this means to a certain extent decisions may seem based on intuition, when you can sort them into certain personality types that are prone to these types of decisions. Yet, experiences can charge certain a person to take direction in a certain way.
Some would argue it is common sense. Yet common sense often dictates that one would constantly do the right thing. When presented with impossible scenarios, common sense may not be applicable. This is where thinking ahead, creative thinking, or planning many moves ahead defies common sense. Common sense should have a logical outcome. Oftentimes intuitive decision-making is illogical.
What does an intuitive decision feel like? It is like a magnet pulling you in a certain direction. The only way to describe a good intuitive decision would be to attempt to counter it. If in going against it one feels only panic and anxiety, this is not a logical choice, but more based on a deep instinctive pull. This certainly cannot be explained as logical.
It is said that one knows the answer to a problem within two seconds. This is the amount of time it takes for the thought to be created, checked, verified and recognized. It takes very little time to ‘compose’ an intuitive decision, whereas common sense or logic often will have to be substantiated and compared, sometimes within one’s own experiences, but oftentimes, a non-intuitive decision will be based on another person’s logic or example, and often done over long time periods. This may mean that in fact a logical decision may on occasion be identical, once compared and analyzed to an intuitive impulse.
For example, if you want to know if your decision is correct, ask someone you trust for their advice. This is a method I use to make decisions. It also works well in advising others. If the clients disagrees with my intuition (which naturally can and should occasionally be contrary) then their own decision may be more correct, if not based on the following points. If I disagree with someone else’s counsel, and it feels that wrong, if it is not based out of need, bias, longing or pride, I can assume it may be the right decision.
There are certain situations where impulse decision-making should not be applied. These situations would be for example, the renting of a home, the search for a new job, a marriage, or relocation, for example. The three foundations for healthy decision-making can be forced when faced with ‘flight or fight’ decisions. This is not to say that impulse decisions during duress is not a good thing, but it must be kept in mind that there is the impulse to stay safe, which sometimes can override good intuitive planning.
A good intuitive plan would be understanding the direction and patiently overriding logic. This doesn’t always work well when one’s survival is being tested, or if working in a team. The same would apply for relationships that are not working. Oftentimes it is affected by pride which is also unfortunately a component for survival. Pride can help a person not succumb to an competitor, or it can allow a family or culture to flourish. Yet pride can overturn any intuition or common sense, and sound decisions as well, which may end up being detrimental and counter-intuitive, if pride is not recognized.
On occasion there are intuitive ideas which may start off seeming wrong, but which may have a finite outcome which cannot be reasoned logically. This is where patience and faith are to be trusted.
