I come to see many questions which in essence mostly ask for some intuition about a concept. Actually, I would argue that most of the top questions on this site could be considered intuition question, for instance this one

I think that an "intuitive" tag would be a great complement to a tag like "math". This would allow users that aren't as mathematically inclined to focus on providing answers on questions with the "intuitive" tag.

This question actually because of this post. OP wants a mathematical answer but it isn't clear from the post at first. After a few comments, I edited the post to make this more obvious.

  • $\begingroup$ I edited the question since it was evidently not as clear as I thought. Math based answers are always high quality. Intuitive answers may not always be desired $\endgroup$ Dec 11, 2019 at 15:54
