I'm looking for some examples to understand what people call their intuition at work when making their decisions.

For example:

  • We learn to type and then after some time we begin to type by automatically knowing position of alphabet on the keyboard.

  • We learn to ride a vehicle and then after some time we ride it without having to think.

Are these the examples of what we call our intuition? If not, how do they happen?


No, these are not examples of intuition, but examples of procedural memory (or automaticity). Procedural memory is the ability to perform certain tasks without conscious awareness.
