Hmmm, it seems I need to clarify myself.
When I was talking about 'intuition' I wasn't necessarily talking about MBT's definition of "intuition" vs "sensing". If I had, I would've put it in 'other psycholog topics'.
I don't doubt that people intuitively "get things".
However, what I have noticed a lot of IRL and even in the forums is people who seem to be supremely confident that they have a 6th sense or are just so secure in their "intuition" that it really does border or become hubris and a blind spot.
I think in general, as a human you need to be open to the possibility that you may be wrong. And that your own particular life experience is exactly that - particular to yourself - and colors everything about you.
You may read someone wrong the first few times you meet them. Sometimes it pays to give people a chance or to enter into a social situation as 'equals' and not as someone who somehow has a 'leg up' on the situation because you have totally figured the other person out in 2 minutes.
Hubris is dangerous regardless what you have hubris about.
I'm not saying ignore your inner voice or intuition, I'm just saying take everything, even yourself, with a grain of salt. And be open to the idea of learning something new, flip your own script, give people a chance to surprise you Etc.
And again, just because you get the gut feeling something is true about someone, it doesn't mean it's true.
I really think some people are so invested in this image of themselves as "great people readers" or having an advantage in life that they need what they decide in the first 30 seconds of seeing someone to be true. So they continually read things into situations and actions and want to keep people in boxes. I think that's lame.
All of that above -- that's all I was trying to say.
Does that make sense?
