Faith!  That's all we need to believe.

One time, lets see... 3 years ago this august, I was at work and had a feeling my house was being robbed.  When I was able to go home at my lunch break, sure enough it was robbed.  It was a very strong feeling.  I called my wife at her work to tell her.  No reason I should have had that feeling but sure enough, turns out I've got a very deep and primal intuitive side with regards to my house apparently!

It is well known that mothers have a very deep and primal intuitive side with regards to their own offspring, the same as animals.


Thats not specifically true in the human race, and in the human race fathers do this too.

I don't need a source hun, I see women who have this amazing intuitive bond with their children.


And I see men with incredible bonds with their children, so we're even....?

I only read the first page, considering I've got a pretty good idea that its all just pretty much bickering back and forth. Hows that for intuition (i'm a male).

However, yes, oracles (in the case of the Greeks at least) were females, and I guess that could be considered psychic, however, Apollo, God of Prophecy is a guy.

Statistics have a margin of error.. unless you give that margin then you've no idea if that poll is true at all- It could have between a 3-99% margin of error.. obviously 3% is a hell of a lot better..So be sure to include your sources, pal.

And, as for this whole entire thread, I'm inclined to believe its exactly the same thing as all these other sex-based claims (more strength in men, for instance), and I must say its all really perception. That idea that males are stronger is probably truth when talking about muscle, but then, another form a strength (endurance) is attributed to women, with their ability to give birth.

Therefore, I hope you realize its perception based, like everything else..

Maybe and maybe not..but when it comes to my kids I always know or feel when something goes wrong..I prove it all the time..I think mothers have intuition more,Its kinda hard not to..we hold them under our hearts for 9 months..maybe the study should do the test on moms vs non-moms..then it would be alot different..

Maybe a mother has more intuition when something is wrong with their child because they are around the kid more than the husband, if it is a typical stay at home mom and working father household.  The mother learns from experience and can tell when something is going wrong, or will go wrong.  This is pretty logical to me, makes sense.

As far as intuition goes, I believe sex has nothing to do with the matter.

actually, women ARE more intuitive than men..but of course the definition of "intuition" is a subjective one. factually, women are more sensitive to emotions and motives in others than men are due to a much larger area in the brain called the corpus collossum which joins the two hemispheres together.

however i do think the smile test is rather dubious as intuition isnt really about judging the truthfulness of smiles...

NO they're not. Gender has nothing to do with it. Intuition is not a genetic trait, it's an enviromental one.
