This conceptual paper examines reasons why analytically educated learners may be reluctant to engage in sensory-based learning. Sensing is indispensable for constructing knowledge and should be employed on par with the intellect, particularly in today's complex and uncertain context. Yet, we have observed learners' reluctance to engage with sensing...
Conference Paper
The literature on intuition within the management scholarship identified six necessary and sufficient characteristics that define intuition: intuition is rapid, alogical, holistic, tacit, has an intrinsic certainty, and is spontaneous (cf Dane & Pratt, 2007; Dörfler & Ackermann, 2012; Kahneman, 2003: 698; Sadler-Smith, 2008: 13). These features are...

Decision-making is a multifaceted, socially constructed, human activity that is often non-rational and non-linear. Although the decision-making literature has begun to recognize the effect of affect on decisions, examining for example the contribution of bodily sensations to affect, it continues to treat the various processes involved in coming to...

Intuitive in contrast to deliberative decision mode is hypothe...
Article

Article
Research on individual differences in information processing is characterized by two incompatible theoretical perspectives. The unitary view postulates that analysis and intuition are the opposite poles of a single dimension, whereas the dual-process view proposes that they are independent constructs.

In recent years there has been a growth of interest in the role played by intuitive judgment in entrepreneurial cognition and behavior. However, the significance of the role of affect in intuitive judgment has been underplayed by entrepreneurship researchers. In response to this theoretical and empirical shortcoming we propose recognition-primed de...

This article...

This Research Topic, hosted by Frontiers in Psychology, aims to shed light on the influence of culture on creativity in the workplace. it is plausible to argue that the relationship between culture and creativity in the workplace, which has widely been recognized as a critical issue, seems to be still overlooked. There is an emerging need to provide systematic and accurate frameworks on the cross-cultural and intercultural dimensions of creativity in the workplace. The goal is to fill this gap by profiling the current conceptual and empirical research on two main levels: 1. The relationship between cultural diversity and organizational creativity; 2. The role of intercultural relationships in facilitating or obstructing creativity in the workplace.
