To Blink or Not?

Reading a Reuters article online today by , Arthur Spiegelman , titled Director Lynch produces film that puzzles critics , David Lynch talked about his process in making films. Lynch said, "It is not an intellectual thing. I am an intuitive filmmaker. You go by intuition. You let the idea talk."
I realized that idea connected with Malcolm Gladwell’s notion about how some decisions were best made intuitively. He expounded on this in his popular book, BLINK. Gladwell is not saying , not to think in making decisions. However, he is saying that our subconscious mind can make some decisions better and quicker.
I have subscribed to this notion in making pictures after realizing some of my most successful images were made quickly , without much conscious thought.
