The purpose of this paper is to initiate a broader dialogue on the use of integrated intelligence (or INI) in formal
research. The application of INI in research is referred to as integrated inquiry. The idea of integrated intelligence, and its
specific applications, can be viewed as genuine cognitive processes, or for the more skeptical, as provocations to inspire
the researcher toward greater creativity. The first part of this paper briefly defines important terms and situates the idea of
integrated intelligence within a historical and civilisational perspective. Finally, the most important section of this paper
outlines specific and practical ways that INI can be used by the modern researcher. The five INI tools are the Intuitive Diary,
Free-form Writing, Meditative States, The Feeling Sense, and Embracing Synchronicity. The essential argument of
this paper is that integrated inquiry can greatly enhance research.
