most of the time, yes, but not all the time. If I want to know if a girl likes me, I use my intuition. But if I want to know that general relativity is true, I use a much much higher standard. Most things in common life are in the former, but to really know something we have to have a higher standard with evidence and reason and the like. And most of the time we don't go to the higher standard just because of time and efficiency and that it doesn't matter much. But for a fantastical claim like "reincarnation is true" we surely think that is important and want the higher standard to which we need evidence and reason. I want to entertain this conjecture, as you say, and really dig in and find out if it is true. But the problem is that when we do that, you cant supply any evidence or reason for it.
Btw, it is worth remember that my intuition (and billions of others) is directly the the opposite of yours that reincarnation is NOT true. So it is a bad example to rest simply on the laurels of intuition.
