I think we should be careful: This is not a scientific or controlled study, what would have happened if you took the back roads and got their early?
Our intuition is a GUIDE and it can be wrong just as much as it is right, for instance sometimes I feel I should intuitively ask a person straight out to have sex with me, but that doesn't mean it's RIGHT.
Our logic circuits would work properly if they had enough information to make a correct judgment, some decisions are very complex and we have limited resources and time available to think things through.
There's a difference between logic, understanding, time constrained thinking, and learned pessimism.
