RRS Working with intuition

Intuition is messy. It can be biased, immeasurable and by extension, a horrible way to make decisions. When faced with intuition, the most common response is to dismiss it or argue against it.


As researchers, we all need to know how to work with intuition instead of against it. In this talk, I propose a framework and a method that allows us to use intuition - to bring in into the fold and include it into their process.
