"Sometimes we do want to leverage our higher cognitive selves over these (intuitions)...But sometimes we need to get out of the way and trust them, because they're very, very good at making sense of, and flitering down, highly complex systems. As long as we're applying the right rules of thumb."
Glenn Murphy talks with health and wellness guru Howard Jacobson about the power of gut feelings and intuitions. An wide-ranging conversation that delves into:
why intuitions are generally underrated
how intutions can both help and hinder us in life
situations in which intuitions work better than anlaysis
how a core function of Systema is to remove or rewire unhelpful intutions
