I will admit that when I started riding motorcycles as a teenager, my "intuitive" sense was "pull the handlebar toward me to turn the opposite direction", and I still do that, although I push and pull, since the whole concept of "countersteering" has come to vogue. But hey, the concept is about as complicated as "the harder you hit a tennis ball, the farther it'll go". Where the hell is all the confusion?
The length of this thread (and similar threads) may be a commentary on just how under developed the skills of the average rider might be...
