Truth table validity for p > q is NOT intuitive nor does anybody bother with it in normal mathematical proof; you assume p and confirm q, let alone informal usage.
By contrast, you have to be carefully taught to give a T to "If all dogs are white, then my dog is black" because the antecedent is false.
