I think that we all use a blend of the two types of thought and we apply them situationally. Now, someone like me uses the analytical much much more than the intuition. A woman that sits at my lunch table at work is just the opposite.

Consequently my world is full of facts and rationale; her's is full of "belief" in things (like a god that controls everything, ghosts, spirits... etc) This article sheds light on how different people arrive at their respective belief systems.

It also (I think) shows why it is so important to the wooists to get into children's minds as early as they are allowed. The indoctrination is not just about kid's learning of the dogma of the religion, but rather implanting the seeds of this type of "intuitive thought"....
