Intuition and Statistics

Learning statistics tend to overwhelm me. Mondays and Tuesdays, I am constantly injected of new theorems and numbers and equations in back-to-back classes. In the myriad of information and data, I was starting to question, 'would I ever be enough to understand the data with these tools?' Then this idea came up to my mind about intuition. As I became older, I could feel that I was gaining preconception based on the past experience. Although it is not always wise to act upon pre-assumed ideas, I do admit that often times my intuition worked. And I thought that this process was similar to studying statistics--Statistics rarely promises you that something is for sure 100%, but it gives you an idea that is likely to work. This realization was very comforting.
