|Business School Neglect|
As shown in the table below, the largest single source of the over 1000 entries is Psychology at 43%. Two other large LCC disciplines are Social Science with 18% including Management related references and Science at 13%. The 18% overstates the relative importance of intuition in the Management discipline. This occurs since many of the management citations are relevant for what they do not say about intuition or for their disparaging attitude.
This highlights the neglect of intuition in management study. With the exception of a few researchers such as Agor, Leavitt, Mintzberg, and Taggart, this oversight continues. The neglect is illustrated by the six most popular texts used for the introductory management course in business schools (Certo, DuBrin, Hellriegel and Slocum, Higgins, Holt, and Mondy). Only one of the six has anything more than the briefest, if any, mention of intuition in management practice.
