    Default N vs. T (amateur question)

    What is the difference between Intuition and Thinking? How can you distinguish when something is intuition, and not just thinking? I just realized this is a main road block in my understanding of the "functions"; even though it's been sitting in the back of my mind for a while, it only put itself clearly together in my head as a question a moment ago.

    Edit: Hold on, it just occurred to me that this topic might have already been discussed. I guess I'll search while you guys think about it.

    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    Perception and judging, that's the diff.

    You take in info with intuition, and make decisions with t'inkin'.

    Oh. Incoming info vs. Outgoing info? Absorption vs. Application? Next is to think of scenarios...

    I would never use those words, but I think so.

    well said. T and F are decision makers whereas N and S are for taking in information, introversion and extroversion are then how those modes are directed and handled (T and F).

    Now, if someone can give nice definitions for the difference between J and P, this will be a perfect little thread.

    Okay, there's some really good stuff in this thread dealing with what I'm looking for: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...oubting-n.html
    About halfway down the first page, Nolla asked the same question I asked in the OP for this thread. Later Edahn responds that "Intuition is of course a thinking process". Now I have to discern which thinking processes are "intuition" and not the "thinking" meant by Te and Ti.

    When I have a spare moment, I'm going to have to imagine how intuition works.

    Yeah, I don't get Intuition either, as in I don't get what it feels like to be one, and I don't get the snobbery.

    J -> making your decisions in "pen" meaning you typically dont change your decisions
    P -> making your decisions in "pencil" meaning you typically make a decision but can go back and change it if need be

    thats a quick and very dirty explaination
