Tapping in - How to Decide: Mind, Heart, or Gut?
Paper in proceeding, 2021
Immediate cognition without rationalization is called intuition - an empowering faculty. Many of us feel disconnected from our intuition, potentially causing us to struggle with confidently making decisions.
We set out to find out why that is and how to support aligned decision-making.
We interviewed fourteen experts on tuning into our intuition for decision-making, surveyed currently available decision-making support tools, and modeled a tool that extends current approaches with the expert insights.
Based on the experts' insights, we modeled a decision trifecta including mind, heart, and gut along with a narrative of how to educate on their interplay and how to use that to take more aligned decisions. We critically question to what extent decision support technology is a beneficial way forward. Impact:
The model opens up a space for discussion around holistic decision making from an individual's perspective. It serves as a reflection tool for personal processes as well as the suitability and limits of supportive technology.
