Kahneman D, Klein G. Conditions for intuitive expertise: a failure to disagree. Am.Psychol. 2009 Sep;64(6):515-26.

‘This article reports on an effort to explore the differences between two approaches to intuition and expertise that are often viewed as conflicting: heuristics and biases (view of Kahneman, Nobelprize winner) and naturalistic decision making (view of Klein)’.¬†These top researchers both let see how emotions and prejudices steered the way of their thoughts,¬†of their¬†research and even their carreers. After extended¬†discussions and several years,¬†they agreed on an answer¬†to one¬†basic question: ‘under what conditions are the intuitions of professionals worthy¬†of trust?’¬†In their common conclusions they underscore the role of an environment when providing valid cues and good feedback. (In words of GPs: the role of the context information) In such situations, ‘skill and expert intuition will eventually develop in individuals of sufficient talent’.
