I had always thought of "instinct" as one of those primal drives, if you will, that helps us to survive like, say, avoiding prickly looking plants or sleeping more in the winter; it is instinct that compels beavers to construct dams without thinking about is like a firewall to help protect us and assist in physical survival.

Intuition however works, I think, on a different level. Intuition, I think warns, us if there is, for eample, a possible danger with a individual or if there is something unusual about a environment.

Humans seem to be one of the few beings that are conscious of this and can actively choose to develop this ability.

I just see it differently.
Oy. You're absolutely correct. Intuition is what I meant, rather than instinct.
