Abstract:

Barriers to unification lie in the false dichotomy and rivalry between intuition and analysis, the arbitrary choice of task conditions, and the absence of a theory of successful intuition, as well as in current research practices. A theoretical framework is presented that is intended to overcome these barriers. The theory is anchored in task conditions, specifies the variety of cognitive properties they induce, and indicates subsequent behavior. Keywords Intuitionanalysis Cognitive continuum theory Generality of experiemental results Judgement and decision making Experimental design Task characteristics.
