AbstractIn this study, we aimed to explore the relationships between intuitive abilities, intelligence (explicit cognitive ability) and personality. We found that intuition is not homogenous and there are three types of intuitive ability: Coherence & Insight, Implicit Learning and Subjective Intuitive Abilities that showed different patterns of relationships with explicit cognitive ability and personality. Coherence & Insight was predicted by intelligence and Openness to Aesthetics. Implicit Learning was weakly predicted by explicit cognitive ability. Subjective Intuitive Abilities was predicted only by Openness subscales: Fantasy, Action and Ideas. We demonstrated that intuition is not a unitary psychological construct but rather a complex cognitive conglomerate that incorporates diverse processes and mechanisms and these intuitive abilities are largely independent from psychometric intelligence.
