The Science of Intuition

Using a method called Magnetocardiography, scientists can detect the electromagnetic field of the heart. The heart is involved in our intelligence through intuition, and a study from 2004 isolated the mechanisms: both the heart and brain are involved in receiving and responding to intuitive information, and women have a stronger sensitivity to intuition from the heart.

More recent studies show that we have physiological responses, including sweaty palms, that tell us what is going to happen, and our intuition is almost always correct, even though we may not always follow it.

Time to stop dismissing that gut feeling; chances are, it’s spot on!
