Our society values logic.
We love to gather the information, and the more detail we can uncover, the better. We pore over it, analysing and comparing it to other data. Then we make a choice, confident that it’s right, because we made it logically and rationally.
Whereas we view intuition very differently. We gather intuitive information through an inner ‘knowing’ or sensing. It’s something that we can’t often explain with reason and logic. We can rarely prove the information at the time we receive it. Sometimes, it doesn’t even make much sense.
So we often view intuition as ‘creative’, or dismiss it as ‘woo woo’.
That’s probably why society tends to value logic over intuition. If something can be ‘proved’, people feel safer and more confident basing their decisions on it.
