Instinct is the lowest form of intelligence. It’s our primal nature that is rooted in survival. It’s what Seth Godin calls the lizard brain. Living by our instinct today is living in fear.
Intellect is rational. It’s about what we are taught by others. It’s what we learn in school. Intellect is about the knowledge we retain from others.
Intuition is different. It unravels from within. It’s a whisper. A little voice that comes from the heart telling you what’s right. Intuition has intention. Intention of doing something that matters. Intuition is at the heart of creativity. Doing something that changes something for the better.
