Faith vs Intuition

What is the difference between faith and intuition? As I was writing Journal #3 for class on Monday, I had to decide whether one of my justifications for my belief was faith or intuition. I instinctively knew that it should be intuition, but I was curious about the difference. I decided to post it on the blog because I thought that it might be a problem that all of us would run into at one time or another, especially when trying to justify a tricky belief :-)

For me at least I see faith as being something that I want to be true. I have faith in the goodness of humanity, and in it's capacity for the beautiful. There are of course instances where this isn't the case, but those that fit make me want it to happen more.
Intuition is a sense of truth, without proper justification. That sense that something is correct without knowing the actuality of it.
