Doctordick:

"there is rarely a circumstance where they can actually prove their intuition is correct"

Wrong. Intuitions are often proved correct.

"almost everyone wants the world explained to them in a manner such that their intuition will give them the correct answer"

You're confusing intuition with rote memorization (it's okay - when you're a real doctor you'll know the difference). The way I know 12 x 9 = 96 automatically, without having to count it out, is because I've memorized it. To call it "intuition" is, frankly, pretty naive.

"they just prefer not to think?"

Here, you've mispelled "I." "T-h-e-y" spells they, which refers to folks other than yourself.
