Intuition- An Objective In Taxonomy Of Research


  • Subbarayan Peri


Intuition is the key concept in the research process and research behavior. It belongs to higher order learning. There are cases of intuition in the world in abundance and in all walks of life. Intuition differs from insight. It's a quality indicator of the research behavior and research products. Learning science did appreciable advancements in 'learning by teaching', but none in 'learning by research'. Intuition could be studied as an objective in the taxonomy of research. There are three sources of literature in support: i) A school of ancient Indian philosophers, Vedantins studied niddhidhyasana and practiced in their curriculum. Niddhidhyasana via. upsana is the technique of inculcation of intuition. ii) Blooms and Flanders could show a way that intuition to be an objective of research, and finally iii) computational models of learning also support it. Key words: Research Behaviors (RB), Learning by teaching (LT), Learning by research (LR), Taxonomy of Research (ToR), Niddhidhyasana, Upasana (meditative intuition), Tapah, Lower order learning (LoL), Higher order Learning (HoL).
