Exercise 12, An Apple a Day

April 17, 2016 Comments Off on Exercise 12, An Apple a Day

Allow an apple to appear in the middle of the page before me.  Notice when you can first see the apple.  Notice what it smells like.  Notice how much heavier it makes the book you’re holding. Notice its color.  Allow myself to perceive its size.

Now allow another apple to appear beside this first one.

Now, which apple is larger: your first or our second.

When I’ve decided this, turn to page 72 for the question I was reading.

The 2nd is larger. 

The 1st one is small but mostly red, some small parts are green. solid. The center of the red is spotted and slightly powdery as if just picked from a tree.  Natural, not like shiny as store bought.  an apple from my childhood.  It smells fresh and sweet and crispy.

The 2nd apple is large, waxy, red mostly.  It’s a fuji apple, store bought, kind of hollow.  no smell.  crispy but not the same crispiness as the first one.  The first one is fresh dense tangy juicy kind of crispy, but the Fuji apple is light soft sweet no effort kind of crispy.

Question: Will the price of New York gold tomorrow close higher or lower than it did today?

My interpretation:  The gold price will go up but the higher price can’t be sustained. 

NOTE: This is one of the exercises in Laura Day’s book: Practical Intuition: how to harness the power of your instinct and make it work for you.  To develop my intuition, I made a decision to do every exercise in this book, and to document them in this blog.
