Distinguishing Intuition from Random Thoughts

How do I identify the difference between a random occurring intuition and a mental thought (that is more of an interpretation)? I have been learning to quiet my mind using various methods, but somehow the static (mental noise – judgments, interpretations) keep coming back from the back door all the time and once I start dwelling on it, the noisy mind takes over. Is there a way to differentiate between true intuitions, creative thoughts and mental noise/static/dwelling on thoughts and judging the world in an unhelpful manner??
Thanks very much for your attention to answer this.
