    Read all about the concept of intuition in the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy: https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/intuition/.

    "The only safe rule is to dispute only with those of your acquaintance of whom you know that they possess sufficient intelligence and self-respect not to advance absurdities; to appeal to reason and not to authority, and to listen to reason and yield to it; and, finally, to be willing to accept reason even from an opponent, and to be just enough to bear being proved to be in the wrong."

    ~ Arthur Schopenhauer, The Art of Being Right: 38 Ways to Win an Argument (1831), Stratagem XXXVIII.

    Intuition about a person. Where does the question of belief arise if your intuition about a person turns out to be true.? Suppose I have an intuition that a person A is going to lose election, though he is not in the race now.

    Intuition comes from experience, some people are more intuitive than others because they may process past experience better and recognize similar patterns occurring. Possible a good attribute to have, for survival or gain. An example being when a police detective has a "hunch" about something this can often lead to solving a crime. Though hunches and intuition are not reliable and never proved certain until found to be true. I have often had some intuition about something only to find it was unfounded. But I find as I get older and wiser (well maybe not wiser) my intuition has become slightly more reliable. Though I'm also more cautious and more open minded than I once was so maybe my belief in what I perceive to be truth is not always as strong as it was.

    Experience of the world makes our intuition better. They are lessons you do not forget in life. However, all people do not harness this ability.
