Intuition is an immediate form of knowledge in which the knower is directly acquainted with the object of knowledge.
Intuition differs from all forms of mediated knowledge, which generally involve conceptualizating the object of knowledge by means of rational/analytical thought processes (and, hence, placing a mediating idea or concept between the knower and the known).
In psychology, intuition can encompass the ability to know valid solutions to problems and decision making.
An important intuitive method for identifying options is brainstorming.
