These three logic, intuition and statistics are what I believe are the main components of making decisions.
A decision may mean like placing someone or something or it means to choose when there are different probabilities.
To decide is a art of everything be it living or a thing.
A decision is also a pathway to a desired effect. We must focus on decision making because it is a part of finding a solution when there are many probabilities. To choose.
Now I will jump ahead to the 3ways of decision making.
Logic- Logic is completely based on facts or supposedly facts. Logic does take logically a proposition for granted. Or logic is based on observed phenomenon. It can easily be said as "This is wrong and hence this is right". Logic arises from our intelligence.
Logic, pure logic has no place for emotions. And hence it is not always accepted. Logic is the science of reasoning. It needs a lot of wit. And logic asks questions or questions the propositions. But however deep it may dig it cannot scrape the ground because some things cannot be answered.
We can very much depend on logic because it does not depend on the beliefs of the society. I will not say logic is entirely a science. Logic is just the art of true or false. It is entirely dependent on the power of the person to judge. The capacity of an individual to do justice to the truth and discard the false. But it stops at a point where there is a probability of both true and false and till we remain unconvinced of the decision it remains a 'paradox'.
Intuition- Intuition can be clearly expressed as a feeling to express or to influence a decision. Intuition is mainly based on emotions. And it is based on our beliefs, our culture, heredity,brought-up etc..etc..all things that influence an emotions including music and all arts. Intuition arises from the depths of our conciousness.
Intuition does not very well reason on the subject. It just kind of guesses which is the right choice. Like I am doing right now in the entrance exams to different universities.
Intuition sometimes has a scientific basis buried down underneath. It is impossible to explain it, it must only be felt.
But we must trust our feelings. Because thoughts are what which expresses as actions. Intuition sometimes more than guesses the option. It uses logic in a more meningful way.
We cannot completely depend on our intuitions because it does not have a strong hold. Intuition goes into spirituality and is yet a bizzare concept. Understood very less or it is very difficult to understand or to believe.
Statistics- Statistics mainly focuses upon the general picture. Or to simply say it depends on the concept "Majority wins".
Statistics is the science of observation. It does not go deep into the concept. But statistics is helpful over issues concerning very large volumes. In national and international issues.
It puts up a picture of the view of the society and naturally we become dependent on these views on the matter of our choices. Hence we may well discard statistics for studying minute details.
Now, I will focus on the main aspects of all this.
Logic- Focuse on individuality. It depends upon the individual intellect.
Intuition- Focuses on a close-knit group. It is usually felt that a unusual bond exists among close-friends or close-relatives. Here intuition does help. Intuition is a spiritual quality of the concious.
Statistics- Focuses on a larger societal veiw. It is very useful in politics, geological and sociological surveys etc..etc..How, a society accepts certain changes must be studied under statistics. Hence, it is a science of observation and tabulation.
Statistics shows us how much we can depend on choices. We may not completely depend on it seeing nothing is completely perfect. Logic, looks into the effects of each choice and understands the doorway to the effects and chooses it. Intuition, must be considered because logic or statistics does not pin-point a solution or a choice. It cuts down the probability or reduces the choices. Hence, for our final choice we must depend on intuition.
So we must use both logic and intuition. Logical intuity is a science of understanding which takes account of both science and emotions.
