    Question How would you explain or how do you understand?

    Question for the Intuitives... how do you explain intuition to the predominantly Observant?

    The predominately observant? That would be you... Ne Fi.

    Do you perhaps mean people like ESTPs? Se Ti? The primarily observant sensors.. those who require more focused data and load points?

    Maybe you mean... How do Ns explain iNtuition to Sensing types?

    If that's what you mean, I'd like to know that, too. I'd also like to know how Sensing types explain to iNtuitives how they think. I've seen a lot of explanatory threads on the other letters, but not the second one as much.

    It'd be cool to see someone take that impressive task on. I would, but I'm too much of a n00b and I'd rather leave it to an expert.

    Don't ask me. Not long ago I had to ask for people to explain it to me --> http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...oubting-n.html

    Contemplation and manipulation of one's ideas about the world, rather than the world itself.

    Okay if we're going to go with explaining S versus N...

    Intuition is a framework of all experiences... errm... experienced (yeah my vocablary iz gud). It's a database of memories. New information is analysed with reference to this. It provides context for everything. Hence N is more about how it connects to everything else than what it is as a singular entity.

    By its behavior.

    I.e. when describing a book or a movie, an "N" will tend to describe the "big picture" or say, "I don't remember the details, but the gist of it was..."

    I'm liking what I'm getting so far... =) I've been trying to explain it to some observant friends... but I some how feel like I offend them whenever I try to explain it... as if they lack something... =( when really it's just a different way of looking at the world.
