Intuition can be taught
In a research study presented at the American Educational Research Association’s 1988 annual meeting, Dr. George Maycock of Appalachian University in Boone, N.C., demonstrated that college students who learned the Exercise Method “showed a significant increase” in their intuition.
A group of 30 students who took the Basic Lecture Series were asked to complete three tests before and after they completed the training:
1. The HCP Profile Test, a test to determine left-brain (logical) versus right-brain (intuitive) dominance.
2. The HCP-PSY Test, a test to determine beliefs and experiences about intuition.

3. The Intuitive Potentials Test, a test developed by Dr. Maycock to measure a person’s potential for being able to intuitively, or clairvoyantly, detect information
The results of these tests were compared to those for a control group of 30 individuals who did not take the Exercise Method training but were instead enrolled in an education course, a regular college course in research methods.
“The individuals who completed the Exercise Method training,” Maycock reported, “showed a significant increase in scores for all three tests. This showed that they tended to become more right-brain or intuitively oriented, their beliefs became more positive toward intuitive thinking and their potential for intuitive thinking improved.
“Individuals in the control group who did not participate in the training showed no significant gains in scores on any of the tests.”
According to Maycock, 83 percent of the Exercise students showed gains in intuitive abilities. Of the five students who did not show gains in intuitive attitudes, four of them (13 percent of the test group) were already functioning in a high intuitive mode before the training, as their scores on the tests they took before the course indicated.
“It was also found that those individuals who were left-brained or logic oriented prior to the training tended to benefit the most, since the Exercise Method training enabled them to become more intuitively oriented or more balanced in their thinking styles,” Maycock noted.
“One researcher,” Maycock continued, “found that 70 percent of gifted or high IQ students were predominantly intuitive, while only 39 percent of students in regular classes were intuitive.
“If intuition has been shown to be useful for creativity and success, then both teachers and their students need to be trained to fully use their intuitive abilities.
“The present research study using the Exercise Method shows that a training program does exist that can improve right-brain intuitive abilities,” Maycock concluded.
