Say your professor is like me and he just wants the new information to make sense. If that is so, the best course of action would be to draw from a broad palette of different hypothesis. He needs to be shown in pictures why there is a causal link between A and B, and how that could fit in with theories he has already established as believeable. The way we gather information is like children do, we try stuff out. We come to expect what direction a billiard ball will roll based on the momentum and velocity of the cue. The same kind of intuitive reasoning when applied to social sciences would take a far less concrete form, making it difficult to convey excactly why it is like it is.

That being said, your professor is completely misguided. The "Think about it intuitively" answer is no way to validate an answer.
