Those who are preparing for the zombie apocalypse often assume that the zombies that they will be facing will be a cookie cutter scene removed from the movies. The dumb, shambling, slack jawed and gore covered moron that has no situational awareness and begs to be put down like an ailing pet. But what if they weren’t?
While there are those who will claim that there will be no difference between zombies when the time comes one must assume that since there are difference between humans there will also be differences between the undead.
What the title of this article implies that there will be those zombies that we may run into that possess a degree of intuition. They are not necessarily smart, or smarter, but they possess certain powers of reason. They do not make like lemmings and walk off the edge of the cliff but stop and go around. They avoid fire and understand that they can use ladders to find victims.
While this may not seem plausible to some there is a very real danger. That danger lies in the laws of probabilities will bring forth the fact that with a large enough population you will invariably get a confirmation of your hypothesis. While there will be a large number of those who ignore this completely, on must consider that while you may never engage a zombie with any degree of intuition the idea that they may save your very life. Thinking that your enemy is smarter than they truly are may seem simple but preparing for the worst can be the difference between walking away and shambling behind the survivors.
