Instincts are flawed.
(This is not an attack on you, just a digression on voting.)
Instincts presume that most people think mostly like you. Instincts
presume that the categories you are evaluating on are the same as everyone
elses, that the relative importance of those categories is the same as
everyone else. Instincts presume only two (or maybe three) choices, and
fail spectacularly when they try to generalize to more than that, assuming
that it's "mostly the same, just more", which is incorrect.
Instincts are a poor way to evaulate voting methods.
and the fact that I can actually do my own solution with it!
I did this vote's solution by hand, in between fits of work. I can show
you how, if it'll improve your opinion of the method :)
