Insight may be defined as the understanding of a specific cause and effect within a specific context. Insight can be achieved when one consciously seeks to gain an understanding of an event or circumstances and its related nuances. In such situations, a person’s response can be considered insightful.
While insight may be related to intuition, the former is essentially conscious while intuition evolves from the unconscious without requiring conscious reasoning. Therefore, one may develop insight by gaining in-depth knowledge of a particular subject or situation.
