    Why this isn't talked about or implemented more often, simple, sensory processing is the accepted standard. You'll find the more successful companies and people use intuition because of their ability to cut the mustard, read between the lines, have insight into others and have analytical and pattern making skills to create successes and avoid disasters.

    Its more a case of using either sensory and or intuitive intelligence as the way to processing information. Since Sensory is conscience and Intuitive is subconscious, it stands to reason that sensory characteristics tends to be accepted because of its surface, linear detailed straight forward logic, it can be measured where as intuition is like the ocean or the underground, the patterns that make the surface and to measure something like that is more complicated and put on the back burner or ignored.

    Although as children intuitive learning was the primary focus but decreased as life conditions demands of us to learn and use a more methodical critical and logical thinking style as opposed to pattern seeking, complex solving, insight driven, emotionally focused intuition based upon feelings created from the brain that can distinguish information based upon experience and behaviour of others and make connections where the sequence is seen as a less logical approach.

    Sort of.

    Is sensing so dominant that people are afraid to discuss their intuition?

    Maybe I'm making no sense but I'll post anyway.
    Nope...It's just you're on a thread where most are intuitive..no need to discuss from that standpoint But if you have a question I'll give you an answer.

    Whoops my preferences NF and omited the NT side of it.

    feeling and thinking focused intuition based upon emotions and thoughts created from the brain that can distinguish information based upon experience and behaviour of others and make connections where the sequence is seen as a less logical approach.

    Still seems slightly off.

    I wouldn't say it isn't widely known- everyone possesses some intuition here and there.
    However, most people don't feel comfortable dealing with the abstract.
    I know that's at least why so many people are impressed that I'm taking on a Math major.
    On the other hand, I know of Sensors who are extremely competent at abstract math and Intuitives who aren't competent in that field at all!!
    However, the Sensors are more likely to focus on finance and the more applied side of mathematicds while the Intuitives are more likely to enjoy the theoretical side.
    I think we all possess some Intuitive traits as we do Sensing traits.

    Ha, when you said going from A to C without going to B, my initial thought was conditioning.

    My intuition gets made fun of all the time by my husband and children, i.e. ISTP, ISTJ and ISTP. My ENFJ son, of course, does not make fun since he uses it.

    But apparently, my thinking is too "random" for them to comprehend or accept as valid.
    I don't think it's easy to explain intuition to sensors.
    And until MBTI came along, I thought there was something wrong with me.

    They don't always use the term "intuition". Synonyms include "hunch", "instinct" or "gut feeling", but they usually mean the same thing: a personal conviction that something is missing, incorrect or misleading in the data being presented as "facts".
    I like that.
