English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. intuition

    Knowledge is all that the mind knows, from whatever source derived or obtained, or by whatever process; the aggregate of facts, truths, or principles acquired or retained by the mind, including alike the intuitions native to the mind and all that has been learned respecting phenomena, causes, laws, principles, literature, etc. There is a tendency to regard knowledge as accurate and systematic, and to a certain degree complete. Information is knowledge of fact, real or supposed, derived from persons, books, or observation, and is regarded as casual and haphazard. We say of a studious man that he has a great store of knowledge, or of an intelligent man of the world, that he has a fund of varied information. Lore is used only in poetic or elevated style, for accumulated knowledge, as of a people or age, or in a more limited sense for learning or erudition. We speak of perception of external objects, apprehension of intellectual truth. Simple perception gives a limited knowledge of external objects, merely as such; the cognition of the same objects is a knowledge of them in some relation; cognizance is the formal or official recognition of something as an object of knowledge; we take cognizance of it. Intuition is primary knowledge antecedent to all teaching or reasoning, experience is knowledge that has entered directly into one's own life; as, a child's experience that fire will burn. Learning is much higher than information, being preeminently wide and systematic knowledge, the result of long, assiduous study; erudition is recondite learning secured only by extraordinary industry, opportunity, and ability. Compare ACQUAINTANCE; EDUCATION; SCIENCE; WISDOM.

    Synonyms:
    acquaintance, apprehension, cognition, cognizance, comprehension, erudition, experience, information, intelligence, knowledge, learning, light, lore, perception, recognition, scholarship, science, wisdom

    Antonyms:
    ignorance, illiteracy, inexperience, misapprehension, misconception, misunderstanding, rudeness, unfamiliarity

How to use intuition in a sentence?

  1. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    In the midst of blindness from hypocrisy. The intuition of conscience is a ballistic echolocation of the navigator of feelings and emotions. It is often confused with self-deception of selfishness.

  2. Ryosuke Iinuma:

    Business succession is the main theme of our investment strategy, those companies are typically run only by owner’s intuition so there is a lot of room for growth once the systematic management is introduced.

  3. Ehsan Sehgal:

  4. Robert:

    This duality has been reflected in classical as well as modern literature as reason versus passion, or mind and the "unconscious." There are moments in each of our lives when our verbal-intellect suggests one course, and our "heart" or intuition, another.

  5. Kevin Roberts:

    I absolutely believe that leadership can be taught. It’s a skill. It combines art and science, people have different instincts so you can’t train instinct, but you can develop intuition. And on top of that you can build skills, program, knowledge. This idea -- ‘oh, he will never be a leader’ -- I have never subscribed to that. I simply don’t believe that.
