    For an SP at least Gary Klein hit it right on the head with his definition of intuition.

    What's Your Intuition?

    After many more interviews with veteran firefighters, Klein developed a radically different understanding of how intuition might work. Over time, as firefighters accumulate a storehouse of experiences, they subconsciously categorize fires according to how they should react to them. They create one mental catalog for fires that call for a search and rescue and another one for fires that require an interior attack. Then they race through their memories in a hyperdrive search to find a prototypical fire that resembles the fire that they are confronting. As soon as they recognize the right match, they swing into action.

    ^ Yep. Intuition means you just do that naturally, subconsciously. Ne means you're constantly looking for patterns. Ni means you're constantly developing patterns.

    If I do have intuition, I ignore it on the fact that there is nothing to support its validity.

    Gut feeling has more to do with instincts (S) and FEELING (F). Not trusting it makes you NT. You're asking the wrong questions.

    Intuition is associated with right-brain thinking, which deals with the quick and seemingly instant processing of information.

    So perhaps "intuition" can be reduced to simply "thinking really fast".

    so fast that you yourself miss the rationality behind it? cuz 'thinking' is mostly sequential. and for something sequential, you can usually spot a pattern or logic...no such thing for the N...far as i can see

    intuition, in the real world, is probably the brainchild of subconscious perception

    Much of our thinking takes place in the subterranean depths of our mind. It's subconscious reasoning.

    I think Intuition is the main ingredient of intelligence.
    I think intuition can basically be summed up as the ability to understand things.
    I think intuition is the ability to process concepts, and I think understanding is based on the ability to process concepts.
    I believe that your ability to understand things depends on your ability to handle concepts.
    I read in this article:
    Liberty Corner: IQ and Personality
    that N's are 27 times more likely to have a high IQ than S's.
    That's a really huge difference and it really points to intuition as being the most important aspect of intelligence.

    I think that thinking is the 2nd most important ingredient of intelligence.
    I think that thinking ability is the ability to process information logically step by step. This is important for checking the validity of your ideas, but without intuition, I think that you wouldn't have the ability to understand things in the first place.
    For example, a computer can process data logically and without making errors,
    but it can't understand anything whatsoever. A computer has no intuition.

    Not necessarily. I'm an S and I trust my intuition just as much or more than my logic.

    interesting. I was listening to this radio show about intuition and it said children these days are about 47% intuitive or something, way above adults.

    so if computers are on the thinking level, what can we create to simlulate intuition?

    I don't instinctively know... I instinctively see. There's a difference there, between knowing and seeing... Knowing means knowing... and seeing is just seeing. You can Know but not See and you can See but not Know.

    I See but don't Know.

    Now does that mean I have intuition or no?
