Intuition is a source of confusion for most people, this is because we chose to follow it, believe it, and it ends up leading us the wrong way.

Intuition is said to be the thing that one knows or believes to know not based on facts but purely on feeling. Intuition is emotionally based.

Intuitive reasoning is not completely dependable as it is at times misleading. Intuition is though right at most of other times.

The opposite is true; one cannot completely trust their instincts when it comes to ruling information of either true or false. Instead, investigators should implement the lie detector to suspects, and an employer should also use an aptitude test, this way the results are more trustworthy (Antonakis, Cianciolo and Sternberg 24).

[...] In the case of brain-damaged patients, they claim to not remember anything and have no recollection of even who they actually are.
