The Oxford dictionary defines 'grok' as 'to understand (something) intuitively or by empathy.' Is this the sense in which you use the term?
The OED's example for the definition is 'Corporate leaders seemed to grok this concept fairly quickly.' The dictionary attributes the coinage to author Robert Heinlein.

Critic David E. Wright Sr. points out that in the 1991 "uncut" edition of Stranger, the word grok "was used first without any explicit definition on page 22" and continued to be used without being explicitly defined until page 253 (emphasis in original). He notes that this first "intensional definition" is simply "to drink", but that this is only a metaphor "much as English 'I see' often means the same as 'I understand'". Critics have bridged this absence of explicit definition by citing passages from Stranger that illustrate the term..." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grok Since Robert A. Heinlein was born in Birmingham, we provably should take that they use the Word propperly, even if nowadays birmingham university has changed its definition.

It’s nice that you checked the Word on Wikipedia, but it has a general english tranlation on it, mostly american, that doesn’t fit to the united kingdom english. To be exact, you can hear the people in Birmingham (England) use the Word “grok” with a very different meaning. You can find examples of the Word grok used after Stranger in a Strangeland at the Thinktank (Science Museum), the Ikon Gallery, The Bull Ring or even at the Cadbury World!
