There is a difference between intuitive and reflective thinking. My view on this is for intuitive thinking it goes with one’s first instinct and reaching decisions quickly based on automatic cognitive processes which lacks effort, intention, awareness usually experienced as feelings and also with the absence of analysis. I can say intuitive thinking is going with your gut. Where as reflective thinking involves questioning of first instinct and consideration of other possibilities. That is taking your time to truly consider a decision. This help students consolidate and assess their practices.
