TechXLR8: What do we mean by ‘Learned’ and ‘Intuitive’ mind?
While putting together the 'Rediscovering our Humanity' presentation for TechXLR8, it occurred to me some participants might find a set of definitions around 'Learned' and 'Intuitive' mind helpful. They are based on my interpretation and are loaded ideas which I recognise others may think differently about:
Conceptualisation: Structuring our understanding of the world.
Rationalisation: Making externally created ideas fit our worldview.
Judgement: The level to which we are attached to a concept or outcome.
Knowledge/Skills acquisition: Traditional learning and training.
Content creation: Our ability to manifest ideas into the world. EG Speech, Writing or Making a cup of tea.
Egoic thinking: Anytime we think we are right.
Connection: A feeling of intimacy. (Example: Talking about football – enjoying sharing a concept OR Romantic love.)
Bodily functions: Actions not controlled by us at a conscious level. Heartbeat or sleep as examples.
Realisation: Capacity for realisation – Becoming aware of a new fact. 'Bob' and 'Lisa' as examples.
Purpose: Motivation resulting from a sense of oneness between head and heart.
Resilience: Bodies heal themselves. We also have innate psychological healing too.
Clarity: An obviousness about a situation in life.
Creativity: Imagination creating something original – Inventiveness.
Flow state: Energised focus on what we are doing in the moment.
