That could work if you have the time to think it through.  But in an
emergency situation, or when you are face-to-face with someone seeking
advice, the intuition has to kick in, and guide the thought and action.
Knowledge before hand is necessary, but instinct has to take over when it
comes time for action.  You can think everything out as much as you want,
but until you get the experience on the battlefield, you won't know how to
let your instinct guide you.
