Abstract. In this paper we present a general definition of the concept ‘intuitive use of user interfaces ' on the basis of our current interdisciplinary work. ‘Intuitive use ’ is regarded as a characteristic of human-machine systems. It refers to a special kind of interaction process between users and technical systems that use the users ' intuition. The main part of the paper deals with central aspects of this definition in detail and discusses pre-conditions and restrictions of the use of the concept. The main aspects that we discuss are the design of technical systems, application and non-conscious use of previous knowledge, intuition as a non-conscious process, interaction, and effectiveness. We complement this discussion by addressing the relationship between aesthetics and intuitive use
