Intuition is often called gut feeling, hunch, instinct, or suspicion. It is your inner expectation of events, conditions, circumstances, or outcomes—your sense of what is going to happen. It is considered an alternate form of knowing because it is not clearly supported by objective fact, evidence, sense experience, or rational processes. Your intuition includes a subjective awareness of qualities and feeling states within other people.
Women’s intuition is attributed to their wider corpus callosum (confirmed by magnetic resonance imaging), the nerve connection between left and right hemispheres of the brain. It is theorized that this physiology enables females to better ‘see the big picture’ than males, and to make more associations using both creative and logical functions of the brain.
Whenever possible, test the validity of your intuition with objective evidence.
