Coming across conclusions finding intuition teachable, and a notable deal of evidence determining intuitive way of thinking as typical for the East, we study Zen literature in order to bridge the message of its techniques with the vocabulary of modern psychology. Learning how to recognize - not necessarily understand - and employ the proper sets of stimuli coming from the unconsciousness can be seen as a function of mastering what Zen literature refers to as a) unconscious concentration, b) clarity of mind and thought and c) spontaneity in action. We discuss each of these virtues on its own, yielding conclusions that boost more questions for the future direction of research in area of intuition.
