intuition is the (abstract) association of the subconsciousness to the relevant thought of the consciousness. instead of the literal meaning of a word, it can be translated to various contexts. take for instance the difference between the two contexts;
"the car was green"
"the air was green with pollution"
in the second example, the air may not really be green; but would be figure a speech. intuition can work somewhat in the same sense.
another example of intuition would be:
a car rolls by; what does a s/n person see?
a sensing person sees a car.
an intuitive person sees a combination of different parts, and understands that they work together to create a car.
sensing shows the tip of the iceberg, whereas intuition is more concerned by what is below the tip. compare it to a person wearing a mask versus how that person's face really looks.
