Can one use the word
intuition for the following scenario:-
Tester: (Checks output file) I think A->1 (A is being mapped to 1), because I am seeing a pattern in the input and output files that was shared by the client.
Developer: But client hasn't pointed that out(to make that changes), you seem to be right though. It's still better to ask the client than making changes going by your 'intuition'.
Is developer right here using the word, 'intuition'. I googled the meaning and it said
It is based without a consious reasoning
But one can clearly see Tester is making a consious reasoning.
So if intuition is the not the suitable word, do you have something else to suggest? If not please tell how it is right.
