Came across an article entitled 'The power of intuition' in The Week dated Nov 5th 06. This article was probably inspired by Malcolm Gladwell's Blink. Found some interesting tidbits that I thought I'd share with you...
"Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become" - Steve Jobs
"A uniformed man with a gun in hand and an enemy in range definitely acts on intuition" - Sarabjit Singh - former director-general of police
"The misconception about intuition is that it is different from logical thinking. It is an advanced stage of logical thinking" - David Myers
"It is by logic that we prove. It is by intuition that we discover" - Henri Poincare
"Intuition is how you turn experience into action. It is the set of hunches, impulses, insights, gut feelings, anticipations and judgements stemming from pervious events in your life..." - Gary Klein in The Power of Intuition
Intuition apparently does not work when one is in an emotional state - stressed/bad mood etc
