SKU: 1016E1FG

The Intuitive Decision-Making Profile (IDMP) is an instrument created to assist individuals in acknowledging the significance of intuition within the decision-making process. It assesses a person's ability to employ intuition and accumulated knowledge when faced with intricate decisions.




Any individual required to make decisions as part of their job scope

1 to 1.5 hours


Research shows that one of the critical skills separating good leaders from great leaders is the conscious use of intuition in daily decision-making. Great leaders actively call on their intuition to enhance decision-making, whereas less effective leaders tend to rely too heavily on traditional approaches.

Give your participants a key competitive advantage with the Intuitive Decision-Making Profile (IDMP). This assessment helps individuals discover how to make complex decisions by putting their "database" of real-world knowledge and experience to work using their intuition.

How it works

The Intuitive Decision-Making Profile (IDMP) was designed to help individuals recognize the role of intuition in decision-making. The instrument evaluates the respondent's capacity for using intuition in decision-making situations.

Participants complete the 40-item inventory that examines the extent to which they incorporate intuition when making business-related decisions. They then review background information about intuitive decision-making to understand its importance. Next, participants score their assessments, chart their results to learn which areas need focus, complete the "When to Use Intuition" table, discuss the "Intuitive Processing Mode," and complete the "Plan for Enhancing Intuition."

Learning outcomes

Any individual who must make decisions as part of his/her job will benefit from this learning instrument. However, individuals with some level of experience in their field of specialization and who regularly make complex, non-routine decisions under conditions of uncertainty will benefit the most.

By the end of this assessment, participants will

  • Discover the extent to which they already utilize their intuition.
  • Determine when it is appropriate to use intuition in decision-making.
  • Learn to identify and overcome emotional and cognitive "blocks."
  • Enhance the conscious use of intuitive decision making.

Uses and applications

The IDMP is an effective tool to develop versatility in decision-making and increase personal effectiveness in the workplace. Building intuitive decision-making is particularly helpful in situations characterized by complex underlying relationships, such as mergers, reorganizations, and strategy formulation.

At the conclusion of training, participants will understand the Intuitive Processing Mode™, which is an original concept of how intuition works in decision-making situations throughout three steps:

  1. Resources and Readiness: To what extent do you have a base of resources to draw on for intuitive decision making?
  2. Overcoming Blocks to Accessing Resources: To what extent are you able to break free of the things that are preventing you from using your intuition?
  3. Practicing Intuitive Decision-Making: To what extent are you aware of patterns developing in situations and the physical signals that confirm or deny those patterns?
