yeah.. i'm no science genious but i try to use it to understand better what i do, what i've been taught by my mentors, how i might appropiately change and adapt for various individuals and special situations.
we all have favorite things that work for us even though they might not be scientifically sound…. but it's obviously better if most of what you do is grounded in something besides "it just felt right"…. although for us science/technical people "intutiion can be a lost art".
btw, I started a book _Awakening Intuition_ by Mona Schulz… it's interesting.
