    I have a strong hunch that intuition is a big part of being creative. The reason that I say this is that creativity involves delving into new realms apart from the commonplace. In short one seems to be most creative when we learn to think in terms of possibilities.

    I thought at one time that intuition was something one either had or did not. But I have come to believe more recently that intuition can be developed.

    What do you think about this? Any personal experiences that you would like to share?

    I believe that intuition is based upon experience, intellect and interest. I do not even think it neccessary to get in touch with your female side.
