Intuition

TagLast edit: 19 Aug 2020 19:47 UTC by habryka

Intuition is the ability to acquire knowledge without recourse to conscious reasoning. Also relevant are Intuition Pumps, a thought experiment, a model, or anything else, that’s structured to allow the thinker to use their intuition to develop an answer to a problem.
