Scientific research suggests intuition is a complex process and a valuable component in decision-making. This pilot study explores the relationship between developing intuition and intuitive decision-making. Through an empirical approach with a holistic view, we utilized a quasi-experimental methodology to explore causation between an intuition development intervention and intuitive decision-making test scores among 20 participants. Primary findings of the paired sample two tailed t-test were t (19) = .127, p = .900, indicate no statistical significance between developing intuition and intuitive decision-making skills. However, secondary findings were congruent with the literature. The calculated mean, median, mode, and range of intuitive decision-making test times decreased after intuition development, indicating improved intuitive decision-making skills. Implications of this pilot study assist future research that explores the relationship between developing intuition and intuitive decision-making.
