From my own experience I would answer absolutely yes; if it’s intuitive underneath the language, it’s intuitive in any language.
I was building complex currency handling equipment from scratch and intuiting the sources of faults on electronic circuit boards in my late teens and repairing them before my employer sent me back to school under an apprenticeship to learn the language for what I was doing. I don’t think it changed my ability to get the job done, but being able to describe the process I was going through and the whys and hows of it gave me an extra sense of purpose.
I was intuiting music and literature back then too (playing The Beatles’ Blackbird and Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Mary Had A Little Lamb on my nylon string guitar by ear), but the language I had for it didn’t start expanding–beyond what was necessary for building databases, writing DOS text-feedback games out of FOR loops, beep codes, COLOR and GOTO commands, and reprogramming (with Litestep) the Windows ME desktop environment of my triple boot DOS/ME/Win2K personally custom built desktop tower with switch-ably bootable dedicated Linux hard drive–until this one night I invited my brother around for dinner.
We had just finished dinner. I got up suddenly to take the dirty plates to the kitchen. My brother remembered me later as putting the plates down, saying ‘I don’t feel so good’, and falling headfirst into the cold kitchen tiles. I came to with him holding my head off the ground and me groaning ‘ughhhhhh…put my head down!’
It took about 2 weeks for my broken inner ear to recover before I could stand up and go back to work. I’m not sure exactly why to this day, but I lost interest from that day in the otherwise stable job and appreciative employer I’d had for well over a decade and got it in my head that I could be better than that.
Got noticed by a strong, beautiful, intelligent woman who told me what I already suspected – that I could be better than that. Fell in love. Got married. Left my job for an extra 15K per annum.
I never imagined that all wasn’t likely to go well. But I knew the history behind both of us, and somewhere deep down there’s no denying…
I intuited it would come to this.
