ill try to cut things out of it.
Intuition as the function of unconscious perception(opposed to Se, which is direct perception to conscious) is wholly directed upon outer objects in the extraverted attitude. Because, in the main, intuition is an unconscious process, the conscious apprehension of its nature is a very difficult matter. In consciousness, the intuitive function is represented by a certain attitude of expectation, a perceptive and penetrating vision, wherein only the subsequent result can prove, in every case, how much was [p. 462] 'perceived-into', and how much actually lay in the object.
Intuition..which is by no means a mere perception, or awareness, but an active, creative process that builds into the object just as much as it takes out.
The primary function of intuition is to transmit mere images, or perceptions of relations and conditions, which could be gained by the other functions, either not at all, or only by very roundabout ways.
Intuition seeks to discover possibilities in the objective situation; hence as a mere tributary function (viz. when not in the position of priority) it is also the instrument which, in the presence of a hopelessly blocked situation, works automatically towards the issue, which no other function could discover. Where intuition has the priority, every ordinary situation in life seems like a closed room, which intuition has to open. It is constantly seeking outlets and fresh possibilities in external life. In a very short time every actual situation becomes a prison to the intuitive; it burdens him like a chain, prompting a compelling need for solution. At times objects would seem to have an almost exaggerated value, should they chance to represent the idea of a severance or release that might lead to the discovery of a new possibility. A fact is acknowledged only in so far as it opens up fresh possibilities of advancing beyond it and of releasing the individual from its operation.
Intuition, in the introverted attitude, is directed upon the inner object, a term we might justly apply to the elements of the unconscious.
Inner objects appear to the intuitive perception as subjective images of things.
Although this intuition may receive its impetus from outer objects, it is never arrested by the external possibilities, but stays with that factor which the outer object releases within.
Whereas introverted sensation is mainly confined to the perception of particular innervation phenomena by way of the unconscious, and does not go beyond them, intuition represses this side of the subjective factor and perceives the image which has really occasioned the innervation.
Introverted intuition perceives all the background processes of consciousness with almost the same distinctness as extraverted sensation senses outer objects. For intuition, therefore, the unconscious images attain to the dignity of things or objects. But, because intuition excludes the co-operation of sensation, it obtains either no knowledge at all or at the best a very inadequate awareness of the innervation-disturbances or of the physical effects produced by the unconscious images.
Just as the world can never become a moral problem for the man who merely senses it, so the world of images is never a moral problem to the intuitive.
Reality has no existence for him; he gives himself up to fruitless fantasies. But, since these images represent possible ways of viewing life, which in given circumstances have the power to provide a new energic potential.. Had this type not existed, there would have been no prophets in Israel.
Since the unconscious is not just something that lies there, like a psychic caput mortuum(Latin term whose literal meaning is "dead head" or "worthless remains"), but is something that coexists and experiences inner transformations which are inherently related to general events, introverted intuition, through its perception of inner processes, gives certain data which may possess supreme importance for the comprehension of general occurrences.
cant really make it much shorter and there would be stuff that id like to add, but then it would be too long. or is this too long already?
