Bob Sutton has written a nice blog post on intuition versus data-driven decision making.
My view is that intuition and analysis are not opposing perspectives, but tag team partners that, under the best conditions, where hunches are followed and then evaluated with evidence (both quantitative and qualitative, that is another issue, qualitative data are different than intuition, and often better) versus when hunches and ingrained behaviors are mindlessly followed and impervious to clear signs that they are failing.
I'm influenced all the time by Bob's ideas and writing. I love how his thinking on any topic is always so unbelievably deep. Even with all Bob has read and studied, he frames his answer to the student's question in the blog post as only "rough thoughts." To have Bob's rough thoughts!
Adopting and practicing an attitude of wisdom, as Bob calls it and practices, is something I really try and do. Here are some prior, and very naive, thoughts from me on intuition for comparison: http://www.ryanjacoby.com/2009/09/intuition-innovation-collaboration-and-credibility.html
