Intuition vs thinking

Sometimes, I have an intuition that, for example, a collaboration with someone, which on paper looks awesome, is not going to be positive for me.

It seems with the model that nothing is bad in itself and it is more the way I choose to interpret it. But what if I’d be willing to think that this collaboration would benefit me (and I could very much believe it) but my gut feeling tells me not to go?

How do you correlate intuition with thinking?
