Intuition can guide investments, says expert

People can call on their intuition to help make good investment decisions, an expert has claimed.

Organisational psychologist Ben Palmer of human resources consultancy Genos International argued that people who take time to reflect on how they feel about something can utilise intuition to "drive good decision making".

Speaking to the Sydney Morning Herald, he noted that while too much emotion can misguide people, the decision making process is improved when people consider the value of their feelings alongside hard information.

"It is all about using an intelligent combination of the facts and logic of the information together with what your 'gut feel' and emotions are telling you," said Mr Palmer.

"It's being emotionally intelligent about how you make investments."
