Intuition tends to be retrospective. You don't recount the times when you were wrong. But often it's knowing things you have not consciously registered or connected. Intuition is knowing that which you don't know you know - a cognitive echo, a leaking of the unconscious into the conscious mind. Sometimes you 'just know' when it's time to trust it.
