Personally I think the psychic and psychological are closely intertwined and equally valid. Have you ever been in the company of a stranger who was highly emotional, even if they didn't show it outwardly? You can feel it on some level.
Riding mass transit is a great example. You're thrown in at random with a bunch of people and it's a great way to gauge your intuition. Many's the time I've taken a seat and found that something was uncomfortable, almost like Kenobi's "disturbance in the force." A quick look around will find someone who's clearly under the influence of God Knows What. This obviously affects my own psychological state as I no longer feel entirely safe, and I start monitoring the situation - is he dangerous? What if he zeroes in on me, or someone else? What's he on anyway, and how would that impact his own mental state? And of course if my monitoring penetrates his daydream, how will he feel about being sized up? It's a mutual feedback loop on both psychological and intuitive levels.
Gavin de Becker wrote about this in his book "The Gift of Fear." He emphasizes the importance of intuition as an early warning sign. In many cases victims of violent crime mention after the fact that something seemed *wrong* about the perpetrator. Sadly, we're taught to devalue intuition, and the results can sometimes be tragic.
