Insight is perception through multi-dimensional cognizance.
If knowledge is manpower, wisdom is nature power, then insight is perhaps the bridge between manpower and nature power. There are multi-layer meanings upon insight.
Insight is the ultimate level of Data-Information-Knowledge-Intelligence-Insight-Wisdom pyramid: If machine analytics is good at transforming information into knowledge; then, the human is still the master of transforming knowledge into insight. Knowledge is limited and can be out of date shortly, but insight is more universal and transcendent. A masterpiece of work, either literature, art, science or philosophy., etc is rest on insight.
Insight is the vision through ‘mind's eyes’: The act or result of understanding the inner nature of things or of seeing intuitively in Greek called noesis. When you learn to create inner space of clear, calmness in the storming mind of thoughts emotions, sensations, dreams and imagination, insights can be perceived.
Insight is thinking into the box after thinking out of the box: Insight takes both creativity and reasoning, intuition and logic, the power of acute observation and deduction, questioning, connection, penetration, discernment, perception called intellection or noesis.
Insight is the understanding of a specific cause and effect in a specific context: Insight is being able to identify the root cause of a problem or the core issues of a situation which leads to understanding and resolution. Too often people may take the easy path, think and work at a superficial level rather than spend the time to understand what is going on underneath. Insight is an understanding of cause and effect based on identification of relationships and behaviors within a model, context, or scenario.
Insight is the ability to perceive clearly or deeply penetration: It is about penetrating and often sudden understanding, as of a complex situation or problem. The insight of situation requires in-depth understanding. It’s about the understanding of one´s possibilities, adversaries, environments effects and other stakeholders’ behavior. The more complex the situation is, the more different approaches and role gaming is needed to reach for understanding. A collective insight is superior.If a team clicks it may reach shared insight of situation which is always better than individual belief.
Insight is one's experience and exploration process, and introspection: The moment to gain insight is different from the ‘Eureka’ moment which refers to that joyous exciting moment when what was perplexing and contradictory suddenly falls into place. An insightful thought can go beyond a moment, even take certain systematic planning. Insight is the intersection of analytic thinking and synthetic thinking; the linear logic and non-linear thinking; Insight is ageless-it is implying that you can gain access to insight at any age, at any life stage, strictly from an esoteric perspective.
Insight is a perception beyond the thought, a multi-dimensional cognizance, and it’s the experience to explore oneself, surrounds and beyond.
