Intuitive Thinking and God

Intuition may lead people toward a belief in the divine and help explain why some people have more faith in God than others, according to research published by the American Psychological Association.

Researchers at Harvard University found that people with a more intuitive thinking style tend to have stronger beliefs in God than those with a more reflective style.

To which, I say: Doesn’t it make sense that intuitive thinking, being less reflective by definition, would result in quicker, simpler and easier answers?

Not that quick n easy is a wrong answer, but it’s not generally one that considers all the information or meets all the needs of the situation, but rather, acts as a stop gap solution until more substantial answers can be identified and implemented.

Many things in life are counter-intuitive and often survival depends on thinking through rather than rushing to implement the first solution.
