    Default Intuitard Moments

    A response to the amusing and hilarious Sensotard Moments thread!

    Our Martian brethren and sistren are not the only silly ones! Sometimes we sensors can get a bit lost when it comes to anything beyond the immediately detectable.

    Intuitard Moments

    I have these all the time when my ENTP best friend is trying to explain something to me. It's not usually a complicated theory or anything, either. It's something everyday but he puts together all these components of it in such a way that it just boggles my mind and I can't follow. He seems to want me to understand the gist of something and be able to put it all together from there, but I just can't.

    Also, he'll use alot of pronouns or technical terms and gets frustrated when he has to go back and explain it all over again. He'll ask me why I didn't get what he was talking about when I could've implied it by logical deduction. I'm just like, uh? Sorry...

    I wish I could think up some examples because although I'm making it sound like he's the silly one, sometimes when I don't get something I end up looking just plain dumb.

    Anyone else?

    Would this be something along the lines of intuitard?

    Sensor: "Dude, that looks just like a stick"
    Intuitor: "That is a stick, dumb ass"
    Sensor: "Thats what I said"

    I need tangible examples and applications to understand a theory fully. I can read up on and it and understand the fundamentals on it, but I'm at a loss if I don't see a concrete application of it.

    My INFJ friend always uses poetic language to describe what he's thinking, and I often have to ask him to 'cut the fluff' and to stop getting so damn poetic on me! I don't care about how it seemed like an endless journey to a bottom of the well in which a drop of blood could be the end of time--- cut to the chase and stop using metaphors. Some people just really love to be descriptive like that.

    Also, I tend to annoy most people by constantly asking them questions about specifics. They'll say. 'I don't feel good.' And I'll ask why. And then they explain why I ask why on different details until they've pumped out a good paragraph of details that they just should have told in the begining. Most people pick up on this habit of mine and they just start answering the question before I respond 'why is that?'

    hah, wouldn't doubt it!

    I know there are similar examples, but I'm too tired to think of any right now.

    Yep! It gets to the point sometimes where I worry if I'm really a dunce. A person can explain something in the simplest of terms but if they don't give an example, I'm at a complete loss.

    All of that! Yes!

    People sometimes get exasperated with how many questions I ask, or at least seem to be put off balance. But for me the concept is in the details of it.

    I said to someone on here recently that i didn't realise OkCupid was a dating site .. A lot of the tests on here are done via that site.

    I wasn't until a day or so later that i saw the forest through the tree's and realised the name of the site .. Okcupid . Kind of makes sense.

    Thank god that doesn't happen to often. I was embarrassed to go back to the thread and make aware my error.

    lol.

    I have an inuitard moment every time someone tries to get me to visualize something that I can't see at the moment. The less descriptive they are, the harder it is for me.

    why would you "intelligent" types want to hang out with sensors who are embarrassingly dumb? you do have your own kind with whom to discuss your "inner circle" ideas. often i think you mean to get your jollies by making theories seem like facts when presented to a sensor who in turn really believes them or is just too baffled by your "wit" to reply to you.

    yeah, funny, huh.

    You know, if all intuitard moments are described this way, I have a feeling that this thread will be less interesting than the sensotard one.
