Brain science can now show us how flashes of intuition occur. Dr. Duggan’s strategic intuition is a special form of intuition which can be distinguished from other types of intuition. According to brain science, there are three types of intuition: ordinary, expert, and strategic intuition. Usually, our ordinary intuition is predominantly based on our gut feelings and emotions. They usually occur haphazardly to most of us. Expert intuition involves a snap judgement. It is usually the kind of intuition that scholarly individuals have when they recognize something familiar.
Strategic intuition, on the other hand, is very different. It occurs slowly. It involves a clear thought. It also occurs for individuals who have thought about a problem for a while. It usually is an insight that works in new situations. And this is usually where most of us need our intuition the most. Dr. Duggan shows the reader how strategic intuition works and how it differs from different kinds of intuition.
Dr. Duggan also shows the reader how strategic intuition has been at the heart of most of the great achievements in history. He shows us how flashes of insight work in Asian philosophy, classical military strategy, business strategy, and the history of science and cognitive psychology. But what’s more, strategic intuition is not limited to individuals with expertise. We can all have such moment of intuitive brilliance!
