    I used to dimiss my hunches or whatever you want to call them because they weren't provable, but again and again they ended up being right even when other people were sure they were wrong. After while, I started going with hunches and finding the stuff to back them up with afterward. People would be impressed with my grasp of the situation -- I'm referring to work situations. Now I try going with hunches with interpersonal stuff -- often this isn't as effective, partly, I think, because people are so complicated and partly because oftentimes they don't know themselves well enough to understand their motivations, so they deny what I tell them.

    I don't usually rely on my gut feelings since I'm never certain whether it'll be correct or incorrect. However conscious processing of information is always going to be much slower than subconscious.

    I mean... Fear itself is a briliant example of intuition at work. The downside is if your intuition is off base. There's always rationality behind things though, even if it might not seem rational to your conscious mind.

    Intuition is the ONLY thing I believe in. It's what I see and hear that I don't trust.

    Well, I experience it, and I believe in it when the outcome doesn't involve other people. It's a means to devise trial-and-error experiments for me, which I consider as "empirical test" on correctness of my intuition.

    I don't think intuition is a thing to believe or not. It simply is. I think there are much of scientific research of intuition these days. Intuition is quite opposite for rational thinking but it's no worse than rational thinking.

    I never used to. That was until recently, about a year ago, that I started to believe that (perhaps) intuition had helped me in some ways, and impartially provided me the way forward... regardless that I virtually (always) considered myself sane, and in-control.

    ... Nowadays, I'm tended to follow my intuition, although I present a kind of 'how-what-where-who' attitude toward it. I don't fall for it, easily, whether for the better or for the worse.

    I certainly believe Ni exists. I believe it is a form of subconscious thought that ties to the conscious mind.

    Nearly all of my ideas are intuited, Te and Ti are used primarily to apply said intuition.

    I do think Ne is quite a bit easier to explain than Ni though...

    You are very strong J Do you ever try to convince them of how they feel? I have done this before when I am extremely stressed and hit my ENFJ shadow.
