Study claims that intuition could be partly biological and is related to the lower prenatal exposure to testosterone that females receive in the womb

Female intuition a womans ability to discern what other people are thinking and feeling is mysterious.

But now a new study claims that it could be partly biological and related to the lower prenatal exposure to testosterone that females receive in the womb.

A team of international experts think explains why women are more intuitive and less reflective than men.

Previous studies have shown that prenatal exposure to testosterone affects developments in the brain and that men take more risks than women because they received a higher amount of testosterone while in the womb, Medical Xpress reported.

Scientists describe intuition as thoughts that are processed unconsciously and automatically, requiring little cognitive effort, while reflexive thought requires conscious analysis and takes more effort.

Intuitive thoughts are considered to be more emotional, while analytical thoughts are more rational.
