Vague Recipe Instructions

What does "occasionally" mean in a recipe that calls for

"cooking over a medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally"?

Does occasionally mean 3 times per minute? Or just 3 times total?
Does the answer to the previous question depend on what dish you are cooking?
Do you just eyeball it and figure it out through trial and error??
