Neither logic or intuition are infallible.

One must rely on a combination of both and make choices on what you perceive as the 'best' at any given time knowing you are probably working with limited information.

Therefore any choice is made in faith that you have made the best decision you could 'at that point in existence'.

Why does everybody insist on black/white , right/left type of arguments when almost always the answer lies somewhere between the absolutes or possibly even without.

Logic is a future process of analysis.
Intuition is a memory storage artifact.

Intuitive memory might be a result of a more thorough logical vetting at the time the subject matter was stored.
On the other hand you can have intuitive responses to very superficial sales tactics.

u am using the concept of " intuition " that a vast majority of people use - if you want to demand that we only use the definition you dictate - then hey - have fun - in your echo chamber

The definitions used by the vast majority of people who are without experience or Knowledge, or the ability to think for themselves, have little option but to parrot their current dictionary (and there are many dictionaries)/ common usage.
Funny thing about language, though, is that despite the 'consensus', as Knowledge and data improve, even if it begins with a single eye actually open, the force of such Truth will change the entire meaning in many instances.

"A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanged; it is the skin of a living thought and may vary greatly in color and content according to the circumstances and time in which it is used." -Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

Seems to be YOU in the 'echo chamber'.
I have no problem defining the words that I use, upon request, so that intelligent people can engage in an intelligent discussion.
If the level of your conversation is bound by ignorant, slavish adherence to current dictionary definitions, and the consensus of the ignorant masses, that is just super, but we will be having few conversations.

Really? Have you no experience that might put some commonly used term into a considerably different (deeper) meaning/light, as per your experience/Knowledge??
