The force itself doesn't seem to tell anyone what's going to happen--even the masters of the force, the top Jedi, were unable to detect an international conspiracy to overthrow the old Republic and create the empire. None of them were able to predict that Anakin would turn to the dark side.
And are you sure these visions and mental imagery are direct results of the force? It seems like they're mostly just the Ni of Ni-oriented people, regardless of whether or not the force is doing anything for them.
I would argue that the only people who apply the force in an Ni way are Ni users (like Obi-Wan) who are already predisposed to Ni means of perception.
