That’s a tricky one for me. I have a very strong intuition pull, that is, once I’ve reasoned it out, with what’s left, if it feels right, it’s right.
So when I was little, going to the Methodist church weekly and being Mr. Helper everywhere, teaching Sunday school and such, the story of Elijah and God’s “still small voice” always rang with with me:
And he said, “Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake; and after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice. And when Eli′jah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood at the entrance of the cave. And behold, there came a voice to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Eli′jah?
later studying of psychology, personality types, cognitive science and phonological loops and such to give other names for the same processes, it’s still my push (or pull) – and I’m fine with whatever the sources are called.
I have a chatty brain that doubts and reasons things out constantly, and when I’m stuck in a decision, one quiet voice that comes out of nowhere it seems is the one that has the answer that i go with most of the time.
[I have a few thoughts about Bayesian belief revisioning but that’s another direction]
