Your post was so well-timed!
Just Friday, I had a very specific intuition (that I should gingerly get out from underneath my sleeping, sick 3-year-old because the Jehovah's Witnesses were going to come ring the doorbell), which I argued myself out of believing (they only come every couple of months; why should it be during this nap! Besides, she is so beautiful to watch, just sleeping there...). And half an hour later, the doorbell rings (multiple times), and it was the Jehovah's Witnesses!!! Of course, I was not able to sneak out of bed without waking her up--she was grumpy for hours afterwards.
I don't recall having an episode of intuition-versus-logic that was that clear-cut before.
But I did manage to notice the difference between the two arguers in my head. The intuition was just a pure, nonjudgemental statement of fact. The logic was snide, and defensive in tone--there were many reasons given why I should in fact ignore my feeling about the forthcoming interruption. It was frenzied. The intuitive side never defended itself other than to calmly repeat the original statement.
At the time I did not have labels for these two arguing personas, but now I do, thanks to Erin's post! I hope my story helps others to figure out which is which when intuition battles logic in our heads.
