The word "intuitive" as applied to design is a bad word; it is just shorthand for "I like it" or "I find it easy or familiar." As such, it has no place in design critiques and discussions, unless it is heavily qualified. For instance, "our primary audience of professional statisticians will find it intuitive if we represent the normal distribution using this chart." But even in this case, it is just shorthand for "familiar," and it'd be better to just use the more accurate and meaningful word.
