"Factoring in" any kind of inaccuracy would lead me to trust myself less, when I've found my greatest growth comes from trusting what I get, implicitly.
True what you say, but my remark pertains to those who practice meditation regularly. Meditation uses a more systematic approach and even observes the fluctuation which you mentioned and makes an effort to figure in that.
Through meditation the fluctuations decrease.
It's like if you have a spring, you can just let it flow as it will which means that the pressure will vary according to the pressures under the earth, and you might put a piping system to regulate it and to cause a constant flow.
So by meditation one may bring one's psychic perception and intuition into a more objective usage.
Otherwise you method is the thing.
