Interestingly, I have better algebra intuition than analysis intuition, within math, and my physics intuition almost feels more closely related to algebra (especially “how to split stuff into parts”) than analysis to me.

Although there’s another thing which is sort of both algebra and analysis, which is looking at a structure in some limit and figuring out what other structure it looks like. (Lie groups/algebras come to mind.)
