Despite its elusive quality, being intuitive is a very desirable and attractive skill
In fact, Steve Jobs called it “more powerful than intellect” in the business world.
Intuition is hard to put your finger on, it’s mostly described as some sort of feeling, or gut instinct. At the same time, it is also used as a criterion for the popular Myers-Briggs classification of personality.
So how do we know if we have the mysterious quality of intuition? Most people do, recalling moments they have ‘just known’ something without pinpointing how or why. Perhaps when they met the love of their life, or moved cities, or took a certain job. But, some lucky people are certainly more intuitive than others, and here is how you can tell.
1. They listen to their inner voice and act upon its advice
The most distinctive feature of an intuitive person is that they listen to the voice in their head, which often defies logic or reason, and take the advice. These people will travel the unbeaten path on a hunch rather than follow a map, and as a result, find an unexpected treasure. These people are the sort to change plans at the last minute because something doesn’t ‘feel right’ and often see better results – much to onlookers’ surprise.
