From the moment that I was in the same room with him...before he said or did anything at all, I had a feeling that he was not to be trusted. And I judged him then, and at all times subsequent to that, according to this feeling. It is a completely unreasonable sentiment, but I can't control when and where it happens. And once it has, it seems absurd to go against it.

    Is that Fi? This kind of thing happens once every so often, and I am always mystified by it because it seems to come from nowhere.
    I would say if it's an MBTI function it's Ne which can be coupled with Ti or Fi.

    Oh, I thought that was a wives' tale sort of thing...woman's intuition.

    woman's intuition is Fi - see Jung's definition of Fi

    I have never experienced first-impression-like "hunches" about people before, so whether this is related to intuition or me being a woman or not....

    Being able to determine the cause of the difficulty in translation helps. Why is she being unclear? What can I do to explain that I am not understanding her message, and how can I explain to her a way in which she could clear up the misunderstandings, a way that I would understand what she is trying to convey? If you think she is being unclear because she is being over-emotional, then make the situation more calm and ask her to rephrase her statements, or something like that.

    Also, someone could be making completely objective statements about string theory and you could still have difficulty in translating the meaning.

    Hmm.. sometimes I get first impression like hunches when I'm playing sports. Like if someone is coming up behind me, or if I sense there is a goal scoring opportunity I get this strong feeling in my gut. I used to get a similar feeling when I was younger when I sensed I was about to be punished by my parents.
    My cold, snide, intellectual life is just a veneer, behind which lies the plywood of loneliness.

    Woman's intuition alerts you to danger. It is not a random hunch. Women are designed to be able to protect themselves and their young, so they are more in tune with perceived threats.

    You may not have a logical reason for why that professor didn't seem to be trustworthy, but your senses picked up on something that is indicative of danger.

    Heh, never? And you're ENFP, so that would preclude both Ne and Fi...

    You know, the only times I get these "hunches" are when I sense something negative...so you may be on to something.
