Tok Reflection – Problems of Intutition as a WOK

Ways of knowing are how people attain knowledge. intuition can be quite problematic as WOK’s. This is because intuition is possible without definitive proof or evidence. This is because intuition is defined as knowledge that is immediately evident.  Although there are problems with intuition as a WOK there are also benefits. For example, when producing knew knowledge and making discoveries it can be quite useful. Because in many situations people have an intuition without any evidence. However, there intuition is used to discover evidence that proves it.

Despite the positive aspects of intuition there are also many problems. Most notably is the  ethical implication of intuition. Because intuition does not require rational processes when one  attains new knowledge it can be quite problematic.  It can lead to unfair and unreasonable judgments of people or ideas without any substantial evidence or reasoning. Another issue with intuition as a WOK is the fact that an intuition can lead to a false sense of knowledge. One’s intuition might cause them to believe an incorrect fact to be true. This can lead to a lot of misinformation and “truths” between different people. Therefore, when Intuition is seen as a WOK it can be quite problematic.
