Convention informs us intuitive means, “using or based on what one feels to be true even without conscious reasoning”.
Similarly ‘intuition’ is defined as, “the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning”.
What is Intuitive Knowledge really?
Could the clue be in the word’s composition? The word intuition, comprises ‘in’ and ‘tuition’. ‘In’, meaning inner or inside and ‘tuition’ meaning teaching or instruction. In the context of mBIT coaching where the answers come from within us, this gives a new perspective of the meaning of inner-tuition, because when we access our subconscious knowledge within us, we learn.
Just Theoretical Conjecture?
The word ‘Education’, which is associated to knowledge, comes from the Latin word “educare” and “educere” which means, “to lead out or bring out latent potential knowledge“.
The process of drawing out knowledge, in Latin is known as ‘Educe‘ – and low and behold the Latin verb “educe” means “to draw forth from within“.
Educe is the essence of our coaching practices, with the application of emerging neuroscience backed experiential exercises bringing out from within. This supports this theory as to the sources of intuitive knowledge.
