How much intuition is needed?

  1. Aug 12, 2005 #1
    I was wondering if it at some point people get intuition on physics or do they always have to rely on the math to conclude things. How is this intuition gained, or is it just an innate ability?

    It appears to be more of a psycho-bio-logical philosophical (philosophy of logic, I presume?) question. So far, I deem it an innate ability, as we observe+discover+raised w/experience of logic (or common sense as some call it)...? What do you think?
