Whether there is such a thing as a "best" intuition for anything is debatable. People's brains are different, so what works well as intuition for one person may not work well for another. – Qiaochu Yuan Jan 31 '11 at 23:13
Have you read Stein's book? Differentiability properties and so on? – Jonas Teuwen Jan 31 '11 at 23:18
