Decision Making: Intuition

In the last byte, we began our discussion on how individual influences affect Decision Making. In today's byte, we look at the role played by Intuition in Decision Making.

Intuition is in essence a preference used to gather data. It could be defined as a fast, positive force in decision making that is utilized at a level below consciousness and involved learned patterns of information.

Intuition allows an individual to step into another's role with ease, and this ability to take roles is a fundamental to development of moral reasoning. Moral reasoning would help in an ethical decision making process. 

If the question one asks at this juncture is whether intuition could be taught? The answer research has found says "yes" - the researcher Agor, also cautioned that at the top of the organization, both the brain hemispheres become important - this means one would need to have both an analytical and intuitive mind functioning at their peak.
