Technology Reduces Human’s Intuition?

Have you ever wonder why intuitive people are very less populated nowadays? According to Myers Briggs scale, In (Intuitive) people only sum up to less than 2% from the whole population, where as only 1/3 of them are women (even generally they are more dominant).

Was it for example, handphone usage? We all know that before a wireless technology was even founded, human had the barrier to detect each other in separated space, and thus their natural instinct developed to sense another human’s existence, even aura, and reading the signs of nature. Ever since technology developed, human are attached with tools that creates an invisible link from one to another. Thus, a system within a society is also diasporing. This is noticeable, of course. But the thing that has been missed is the cutoff and the reducing needs of intuition. Since there is a tool that enable the communication linkage between human, intuition is much less needed than before. In my personal opinion we also need to note that the development of technology itself also slowly but sure develop a certain mindset within human’s brain: that is, the blunder of the term ‘logic’. Personally I think it’s really stupid to consider intuition as something irrational, judgemental, just because your capacity as a human to use your intuition is not the way it supposed to be anymore, like perhaps, a thousand years ago.

This is a long term process of course, but ever since the intuition is less needed, I would say the system goes similar as Darwin’s theory of evolution. The capability encrypted in the mental mindset had evoluted of course, not only the capacity of the brain and the shape of the body.  The thing is, it is not a positive landmark since it is reducing, and not developing. So in some sense, human capacity are developing in one term but going backward in other things. I would say this is one blind spot that crops as one blunder within the current mortals living these days. People keep saying intuition is this and that, it’s oftenly described as something abstract and irrational. But I believe there must be some way to describe it, even in human blunder mindset method, carved in whatsoever called ‘logic’. I need time to figure how to make this explanation. I guess I made too much notes already. Oh yes, tell me that again, I heard so much already about being ambitious.

So now, if you think your intuition is not working, blame it on your blackberry *evilsmirk*.


The Quote I Like and Things That I Hate

Salah satu quote yang saya suka adalah “Don’t judge the book by it’s cover.” Pasaran banget, memang. Tapi ngena banget di aku. Waktu pertama kali orang lihat saya, mereka seringkali memuji atau meremehkan sekaligus. Kalau memuji, mereka biasanya bilang “Wah, udah kuliah masih imut-imut ya, kayak anak SMA” atau “Wah, anaknya Pak Maryatmo cantik ya.” Saya sih biasanya cuma senyum simpul, formalitas. Karena saya sudah tau buntut pujian ini biasanya nggak mengenakkan di saya. Bukan mau negative thinking, tapi hal ini sudah cukup sering terjadi: diremehkan karena status saya sebagai perempuan yang badannya kecil dan muka childish, atau karena status saya yang notabene anaknya dosen.
