Intuitive Psychology: Anxiety and Intuition are Interconnected

Intuition is a sense, a sixth sense, feeling and physiological signal in the body that may or may not be connected to something that we understand consciously.

Anxiety is referred as a feeling of nervousness, a feeling of worry, and unease, usually about an uncertain outcome or event.

Anxiety and intuition have shown that they are deeply connected to one another. A keen sense of intuition became intertwined in a way that people often don’t realize. Sensitive intuitive people are tuned in to the emotions of others. It’s important to realize that when you experience anxiety, it isn’t always a bad thing. Anxiety is a signal that something there is imminent danger, and it can help you to further your emotional growth as well as help others.

Throughout my life, anxiety has been a challenge and have learned to use it as a secret weapon. I now know that anxiety is a superpower that helps yourself to help others.

The ability to think, to reflect on ourselves and our behavior and
to plan ahead, is the feature that most defines us as humans, and evolution.

Sometimes people get stuck in it. People are often consumed with
the past, ruminating about events and repeating them over and over. Others
get paralyzed thinking about what lies ahead. Both forms of overthinking
consume the brain’s limited capacity for attention, bring the mind
to a stop and it and compromises mental health. One form is known as depression,
the other anxiety. And both conditions are rampant in our culture
today.

Intuition can be thought of as almost the polar opposite of either.
And it is a reliable way of knowing, and valuable in many
circumstances.

There are many ways to define intuition, but all present a kind of
conundrum. The act of reflecting on intuition is precisely what intuition
isn’t. Intuition is really your brain on autopilot, performing its
actions of processing information outside of your awareness that
it’s operating. It’s nonconscious thinking.

It’s often safe to rely on automatic nonconscious processes
for parrot-fashion tasks, but what happens when it is complex situations?

Nonconscious processes operate all the time in complex
decision-making. Often enough, we just don’t give them credit.
Sometimes we override our intuitive gut-level reactions altogether,
ignoring our native responses in favor of ways we think, for external
reasons—such as to coincide with the judgments of others—we
should be reacting. The truth is that all of the
factors that influence our reactions just aren’t available to our
conscious selves.
