The Intuitive Mind

I was reading last night when I ran across the following quote that I've read before.
"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind its faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. - Albert Einstein"
It reminded me of another quote by a slightly less famous Michael Bierut, partner at Pentagram is credited for having said.
"Most processes leave out the stuff that no one wants to talk about: magic, intuition and leaps of faith."
The INFP that I am, I naturally love these quotes. And, my 20+ years of business experience tell me that there is much truth in these statements. I've seen opportunities lost to and the joy squeezed out of work by the need to be scientifically exacting and to apply process to every bit of an issue.

I've heard stories about how Warren Buffet relies on his intuition in the decision making process. Seems he's figured out for himself what Einstein and Bierut were talking about. And, he's not doing so badly, huh?

Here's what I wonder: With a looming recession, will the use of intuition in business become more or less popular?
