One person really helped me to develop a subject knowledge and I thank him saying: "Thank you so much for your time and knowledge!". He said, you can be more knowledgeable than me, but what it takes to really understand is the insight.

So, my question is how one develop insight systematically?

  • This seems to be a good fit for cognitive science unless you're asking about it in generic terms. – virmaior Jan 18 '18 at 13:35
  • Some systematic things one can do is (1) maintain one's health, (2) get adequate rest, (3) pay attention and practice what one wants insight into. – Frank Hubeny Jan 21 '18 at 1:38

One should begin by asking insight into what?

For example, there is such a thing as mathematical and physical insight. The disciplines aligned with this - mathematics and physics - have come up with many pedagogical devices to help train intuition in such a way that the possibility of insight becomes developed.

So on this reading insight is indeed trainable though like many other things, it also depends on a persons capacity and potential for insight.
