In everyday life with other people I have difficulties to distinguish when my ego construct tries to protect itself or when my intuition guides me for the best of all participants. Due to this doubt I end up doing nothing saying nothing or being too polite and mild. This does not feel true.

Anything you think yourself, all of it is ego. Intuition is not about one´s own thoughts. As Hakuin says: "Realizing the form of no-form as form, whether going or returning we cannot be any place else. Realizing the thought of nothought as thought, whether singing or dancing, we are the voice of the Dharma. How vast and wide the unobstructed sky of samadhi!" It cannot be done by one´s own intention. Intuition comes towards you.
