7 способов развить в себе интуицию

“Intuition is more powerful than intelligence,” once said Steve jobs. Only that it’s for the ability, how to obtain it and then use it? There are at least seven ways to find a common language with our sixth sense.


Trust yourself

According to neuroscience, intuition is inherent in all people a form of thinking that is responsible for solving the problem with lack of logical validity.
This knowledge without knowledge.
Intuitive answers come to us all the time, even before logic will offer their own versions. Only usually we reject them thinking, “what an idiot”, “this is crazy”, “I don’t have enough power” and so on. Therefore, in order to develop intuition, you first need to accept it, to learn to trust yourself and not be afraid to deviate from the beaten paths or to go against the majority opinion.

According to psychologist Silviana Bart Liberia, when a man listens to his inner voice, his aggravated feelings, he begins to notice something that didn’t pay attention the first time. It is important not to confuse intuition with desire. Desire is what we want. Intuition is the result of subconscious analysis.

Spend time alone

Not always, of course. Just to learn to listen to myself, sometimes need to turn away from what is happening, to banish from the head of unwanted worries and take regular visits to yourself alone. No wonder, statistics reveal that intuition is best developed introverts. According to Sophie Burnham, author of “the art of intuition”: “in the turmoil of daily Affairs and not to capture logical inference, what can I say about the quiet voice of intuition”.

Be curious

The main feature of all people with a developed intuition – they always pay attention to details. They may forget important dates, plans for the week, but will definitely remember that when I closed the book, one page of jammed. Or will notice that his tie is tied colleagues today not as usual. Think Of Sherlock Holmes. No wonder the papers devoted to intuition it is called intuition – there are no useless facts, sounds and details in the problem on which he works. It’s all part of the same mosaic.

Anyone who wants to develop their subconscious analysis, psychologists advise to always pay attention to the details. Try it for a couple of weeks to constantly strain at the same time hearing, vision and smell when meeting someone new. After a while you will be quite “at first sight” to make an impression on the identity.


Reading the thoughts of others is not “something from the kind of science fiction”, but what we all do every day. Scientists have proven that our brains are constantly copies the expression, sensations and other symptoms. And all because of “mirror neurons” that are present in speech, motor, visual, associative and other areas. It is because of them we feel discomfort when someone pinched a finger, or sincerely understand the feelings of others in a given situation. In psychology this is called intuitive communication.

So often soperezhivat and listen to the feelings of others. This is the same knowledge which would then be included in the overall picture of the analysis. According to psychologist Joachim Bauer, would not have mirror neurons, there would be no intuition and empathy. No wonder the developed intuition is more common in susceptible individuals.

Pay attention to the dreams

And it’s not superstitious nonsense, and advice from an expert Sofia Birnham. According to her, dreams and intuition are formed from the unconscious, and therefore can have the same nature. Some somnology, for example, doctor of medical Sciences Gennady Carpets believes that prophetic dreams are the result of a long mental process. Take, say, sleep Mendeleev. Dmitry Ivanovich has gained enough information to the brain during sleep has reviewed all the data in the correct order.


According to a recent study by psychologist Clara Wolfe – creativity and intuition are inextricably linked with each other. She believes that intuition is the highest degree of skill in a particular skill: “the Best the artist – the intuitive artist”. Intuition not only allows you to bypass the established cliches, but also requires less brain cost – the body spends much less energy on intuition than on logical thinking. Moreover, the study showed, the more man manifests itself in the work, the better it works intuition. All because the art makes the brain more flexible in the decisions.

Away the negativity

Strong emotions, especially negative, drown out the inner voice of intuition, as, in General, and the voice of reason. Especially anger, which, according to Burnham, completely replacing all sorts of useful tips some of the subconscious thinking from your head.
And positive emotions, which usually relaxes the person and makes him vulnerable, on the contrary, the results of psychological research (published in 2013 in the journal Psychological science) help to keep your intuitive abilities in good shape.
