Intuition, according to Danny Kahneman (freakin’ brain expert), “is nothing more and nothing less than recognition.” Translation – the more you practice in whatever is your domain the more expert intuition will build. Mothers did not inherit a Mom’s intuition and simply know by looking at us that we had a fever or some form of flu. Mothers, the really good ones, simply enjoyed prolonged practice studying you and studying me. So, when something small seemed a little off from our normal, they “intuitively” knew how best to respond.
