Could Intuition Be One of Your NCIDQ Exam Secrets?
When you’re deep in the middle of getting ready for the NCIDQ Exam, it’s easy to lose sight of why exactly you’re taking the exam in the first place. It’s not just about passing.
You want to have a strong working knowledge of the subject matter so you can apply it on an ongoing basis. The sheer amount of information covered can be overwhelming.
But it can help you develop an important skill that will serve you time and time again – perceptual intuition. Understand what this is (and how to use it) and it can be one of your greatest NCIDQ Exam secrets.
Perceptual Intuition Explained
Perceptual intuition is the concept that we learn how to separate important facts based on patterns. Our brains register subtle patterns before we even realize we’re learning.
A University of Iowa experiment found that “people playing a simple gambling game with decks of cards reported “liking” some decks better than others.” This happened long before they realized that certain decks had cards that caused greater losses.When learning, this skill let us classify problems based on patterns. Our brains pick up on the differences before we’re even aware. Instead of trying to do what we’re told, we’re doing what makes the most sense to us.
Tapping into your perceptual intuition helps to speed up your learning. It’s commonly used in classrooms in the form of learning aids including quizzes, flash cards, problem-solving strategies and more.
