Intuitive to whom?

Expert Python programmers?

VB coders?

Perl hackers?

School children who have never programmed before?



Rocket scientists?

Hunter-gatherers from the Kalahari desert?

My intuition tells me you have never even considered that intuition 
depends on who is doing the intuiting.
