    When I heard the word "intuition" I always thought they meant "psychic intuition". Haha. I went to a psychic once, she told me I was strong psychically. Not really sure what that means. I can't read minds or anything cool. Haha.

    If I had any superpower, it would definitely be telepathy. Typology makes a poor substitute.

    It's not a matter of it being "known", it's a matter of it being "blown out of proportion." Everyone knows about intuition, because everyone has it to some degree, and more importantly it can be worked on and improved. However, most people don't need something like MBTI to validate the hell out of themselves.
    Not really.

    This is not in the MBTI sense of the word but I've read a bit about intuition. It's largely misunderstood. That's why it's not talked about.

    What's Your Intuition?
    By: Bill BreenWed Dec 19, 2007 at 12:17 AM
    Cognitive psychologist Gary Klein has studied people who make do-or-die decisions. His advice? Forget analysis paralysis. Trust your instincts.


    Sources of Power: How People Make Decisions

    Amazon.com Review
    Gary Klein studies decision-making in the field, tagging along with firefighters, standing by in intensive-care units, and watching chess masters play lightning-fast "blitz" games to learn how people make choices with time constraints, limited information, and changing goals. From this research, he and his associates have developed a theory of "naturalistic decision-making."

    Sources of Power essentially lends the validity of scientific research to techniques that many of us use every day. There's intuition, which is based not on instantaneous insight but on the rapid (perhaps even subconscious) interpretation of perceptual cues. There's mental simulation, a finely honed method of visualization. There's storytelling and metaphor, which enable decision-makers to devise meaningful frameworks and compare their present situations to previous events. Nobody is born with an inherent mastery of these and other techniques, Klein tells us, but we are all born with the capability to develop, through experience, the skill sets experts call upon to make good decisions. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    I don’t think it is correct when people talk about intuition as if it was something mystical. I think it has to do with the way our brain moves data that it has perceived unconsciously to our consciousness. I think with intuition you are just more likely to access data that your mind has not made sense of, because it could not connect it to data in your brain that are already evaluated knowledge. Intuition is a process in our brain that we use to skim through a lot of disconnected data and searching for patterns. That is also why introverted intuitives are more likely to use metaphor because they are just like these patterns they perceive.

    I have noticed that sensors tend to focus on real problems and concrete needs whereas intuitive are more interested to focus on possible developments. One case to illustrate it: I am using a dominant Ni. I was doing some really boring legal work together with a colleague who was a strong extroverted sensor. We shared the same desk. We had to go through a lot of cases full of details that I just did not enjoy taking in. I had to ask my colleague a lot of question because I was a newbie. I tended to ask question that made me interested in the work and went above what I was actually reading in that file. So I asked him once whether the case should have been decided different if the person concerned was married to a student or a pensioner. I remember him looking up with a very odd look and than telling me: “Why do you ask this, it has nothing to do with the case. It does not solve it.”
    Of course it did not help me to solve the case at hand. However I think that asking this question was not wrong either. I may not have had this problem at the time, but I could envision it arising in future. This is what I have noticed many time in my interaction with sensors and intuitive. Intuitive seem to be more interested to think up scenarios that haven’t actually happened. This is also why I sometimes get frustrated when dealing with sensor colleague. They tend to only acknowledge existing problems and can be blind to future developments.

    Most people aren't thinking of iNtuition in the Jungian sense when they use or hear that word. iNtuition is really just subconscious awareness of patterns, forms and connections before they've been able to form fully in conscious awareness--we just know something, without really being sure why. Card metaphor because I'm a gambling junkie: When everything your opponent does in a hand of poker gives you a seemingly inexplicable "gut feeling" that he's bluffing, there's often something to it, and it comes from experience manifesting itself in terms of subconscious awareness of patterns of cause and effect. "I just know he's bluffing" is iNtuition.

    The problem is, most people think iNtuition is psychic reading. "I just know the next random card from the deck will be an 8!" is not iNtuition; it's bullshit. This is basically the difference between typology and astrology, but most people neither know nor care enough to understand the difference.
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Absolutely right!!!! I am not a prophet. I just make better use of subconscious data by finding patterns before they make sense to me.
