The Highest Form of Intelligence
Countless studies have shown the importance of honing your intuition for use in decision-making. Even the likes of Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Carl Jung, and Richard Branson insist that the value of our intuition far outweighs that of the rational mind. So, how can we hone our intuition to help us make better decisions?
Gerd Gigerenzer, a director at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, goes so far as to claim that intuition, or ‘gut feeling’, is the highest form of intelligence. In fact, those who actively work on developing their intuition are capable of making better, faster, and more beneficial decisions.
He insists that there is a science to good decision-making, stating that the trick is not to amass information, but to discard it: to know intuitively what one doesn’t need to know.
Speaking to the New York Times, Gigerenzer gave the following definition of intuition or gut feeling, and how to develop it: “My research indicates that gut feelings are based on simple rules of thumb, what we psychologists term “heuristics.” These take advantage of certain capacities of the brain that have come down to us through time, experience and evolution. Gut instincts often rely on simple cues in the environment. In most situations, when people use their instincts, they are heeding these cues and ignoring other unnecessary information.”
Gigerenzer states that, particularly in Western society, we have been conditioned to believe that intuitive thinking is somehow wrong. Furthermore, it is regarded as somehow inferior to the accepted rational method of painstakingly gathering and weighing the evidence. While the latter method obviously has its place, intuitive thinking is absolutely vital in situations where quick decisions are needed. He conducted studies that showed when a person relies on their gut feelings and uses the instinctual rule of thumb “go with your first best feeling and ignore everything else,” it can permit them to outperform the most complex calculations.
But I’m not Intuitive, What Can I Do?
The evidence that intuitive decision making is vital to success in nearly all fields of human endeavor is overwhelming. So, what can you do if you have a lack of intuition, or if decades of schooling in the rational methodology has left your intuition stunted and underdeveloped? First, stop saying you are not intuitive. Instead, focus on the idea that you are honing your intuition.
Synctuition is the culmination of 10 years of development for use as a tool to help guide you through the journey of discovering your intuition. Working with leading psychologists, neurologists, meditation experts, musicians, and sound engineers to combine four technologies into one groundbreaking product. Most noteworthy are the binaural beats, gamma waves, and 3-dimensional soundscapes, blended with the listener’s own personal vocal frequency. The results are a customized and unique experience for each Synctuition user.
The Power of Sound
Neurological research has well-established that sound-induced simultaneous synchronization of the left and right hemispheres of the brain profoundly affect thought processes. During states of deep meditation, the synchronized waves improve higher cognitive function, thereby strengthening the mechanisms of intuitive thought process. In time, you will be able to access the intuitive mind easier and faster, thanks to this neuronal workout routine.
Binaural Beats and Neural Entrainment
Neurons are constantly being created in the parts of the brain that are used for new activity. A process called neuroplasticity both creates new neurons and retrains existing neurons into behaviors that are exercised regularly. During this process, a phenomenon called cortical oscillation generates electrical currents that can be measured with an Electroencephalograph (EEG). When these oscillations synchronize, they can form a large scale brain network, which can be monitored and graphically documented by an EEG.
In other words, we have been able to measure changes to brain waves brought about by binaural stimulation Additionally, there is overwhelming evidence that new behaviors can be learned at this fundamental level, regardless of age. Binaural training may be a gentle way of training the brain to have new and different thoughts.
The idea that music and certain patterns of sound can synchronize brain patterns is no longer just speculation. The result is information or thoughts forming much faster. It will even form new connections that once formed, are never lost.
Honing Your Intuition with Synctuition
Synctuition uses the latest technology in sound recording to produce specific patterns of sound that stimulate the effortless flow of brainwaves between hemispheres of the brain. It is designed to teach and exercise the brain to get better at this by practice and promotes particular brain waves resulting in a higher level of intuition. By sitting undisturbed and listening through stereo headphones, the brain can benefit from the regular stimulation, learning how to default to a more intuitive way of thinking with practice.
