    I actually thought that it might be more concious, but maybe.
    I can't relate to getting dreams and/or gut instinct about something that is going to happen. I do sometimes get a bad feeling about stuff, but then I can point out why. "You haven't checked the tires yet, right?" Or weather from a weather pic, political trends (I follow them..), but that's normal.

    I can't see it being a pattern...I have never seen this person at that intersection in all of my life prior to that occurence. Nor have I ever passed this person on the road or seen them on the road when I was out.

    1st point) I find that most (99.9%) if not all things in life are circles. We seek to repeat because the familiar is comfortable. (Freud wasn't so far out either)
    2nd Point) I find people have emotional climates and tunes...you can hear/feel them, and they can tell alot about someone, (I've never been truly wrong yet, when I second guess I start being wrong) some people are just good people and others have few redeeming qualities, but in they end they are not good.
    3rd point) I know people's emotions before they recognise them and/or aknowledge them. Again, never wrong.
    4th point) I've seen events before they happen, but feel guiltly when they happen, as I feel I could have done something more to stop them.

    BTW I'm going to be a Psych Major.

    do any of you have that talent for vivid shaman-like visualization i was referring to?

    i don't think its strictly type related (obviously other types, often thinking types have something like that, even sensing types), but it or a specific variation of it just seemed to match the enneagram 4 & FiNe perfectly.

    I've always had strange "psychic" experiences, including precognitive dreams and visions. Often they are of seemingly random things, other times they are highly significant to myself or others I am close to. I have a "long-distance" connection to some people, including my mother and one or two friends back in the UK. I usually always have some kind of sense as to how their doing and "know" when they are about to contact me.

    I have a couple of friends who claim to be mediums, and whilst I do not normally have any abilities in this area, when I am in their presence, I seem to pick up something of what they are seeing. It comes as images inside my mind, for example, after staying in the house of a "clairvoyant" woman I had just met, I started to "see" spirits floating around her supposedly haunted house. One in particular drew my attention: a young female dressed in white, with a strange sort of innocence about her, who was hovering in front of the clairvoyant woman, who seemed to be unaware of her presence. I suddenly asked her "did you have a sister who died?". She replied that yes, a younger sister of hers died shortly after birth, but she had never seen her spirit and had wondered why all her life. I was able to provide further details and reassure the woman that her sister had been with her all the time.

    Now, this is the first time I've ever done anything like that and I am still pondering the consequences.

    At other time, people I barely know have come up to me and said "I can tell you are psychic, please tell me what is going on in my life". It happened at a party just last weekend. Somehow, I seem to then be able to start puilling accurate facts about that person from out of thin air; as if by opening up to me they have given me permission to read their mind. Some of my answers can be attributed to reading body language etc, but other facts are just too obscure to put down to that. For example, I could tell the woman at the party wanted her next baby to be a girl. Turned out she had just found out she was pregnant and desperately wanted a girl!

    Here are some other recent examples of my strange "gift":

    A couple of weeks ago I started thinking about what it must be like to be an albino, all the while thinking how weird it was to be thinking that. Then later the same day a TV show came on with a special all about albinos! I had not read the TV guide for that day, so I had no idea that this show was on.

    A few days before that, my family and I were leaving a friend's house after a party. It was dark, the sidewalk was uneven and my Mum has a bad leg, so I thought it was just my imagination when I had a vivid mental image of her falling flat on her face. Six seconds later, she did exactly that, but I was the one who shrieked out loud in surprise. Luckily, she wasn't badly hurt, but I'm still beating myself up for not saying something as soon as I had the intuition.

    There are countless other examples, some of which I can dismiss as products of my extremely strong Ni function, but others...., well who knows?

    You will note my cautious use of language and inverted commas while describing my experiences. I do believe that many "paranormal" phenomena may be real, however, the scientist in me believes that one day there will be a rational explanation for such things, as well as some answers as to which phenomena are real and which are not.

    Phew, that was a long reply, but this is a topic of deep interest to myself.

    That's pretty damn amazing.
    I've had moments similar to that, but I'm not so certain that it's in any extreme, really. I sometimes can 'see' things happening just moments before they do.

    Ex: A customer came in to place an order and set her very bundled up baby on the counter, sideways. There is a three foot drop on her side, and then a short drop to the second register on my side. I mentioned something to the customer that it might not be safe to leave her daughter up there sitting sideways and the woman insisted the baby would be fine. As I turned my eyes away from the kid, I had this flash...image of the little girl toppling over. About five or six seconds later, the baby did exactly that, and I, luckily, threw my arm out and caught her before she hit her head on the top of the second register. The child still cried [she was startled, I think], and the mother was freaking out, all while I thought 'I told you so...'

    I've mentioned it before in other threads that sometimes if I dream about somebody with whom I'm closely bonded to, I know that I'll hear from them the very next day. More often than not, this occurs with my grandmother than with any other member of the family.

    Two days before my cousin passed away in December, I had been thinking about her. I'm not certain why she came to mind [I think it was because I was on Myspace--my top friends used to be set up on random, so I never knew who was going to show up- and she was in my number 1 spot that moment]- but I suddenly got the inkling that perhaps I should contact her. I thought 'I wonder how Brittany is doing. I should make a point to tell her that I'm coming home to visit in a couple of weeks and make sure she can go to dinner with all of us since she couldn't last time.'

    Unfortunately, I got too involved in whatever I'd gone to Myspace for and completely forgot to send the message. The next day, she passed away, and the following day was when I found out about it. I had a notion that I'd thought about her, about contacting her, because something was going to happen. It'd been my last chance, and I didn't take it.


    I also get those strong urges to not go somewhere [and unfortunately, I don't always listen...] because I know something is going to turn out badly, or that I'll wind up feeling very uncomfortable. Sometimes I dream about things at complete random and it will eventually come true. In 7th grade, I had a dream about a classmate I was not friends with getting pregnant at a young age. As it turned out, come Freshman year of high school, that dream actually became a reality and that girl had to drop out of school to take care of her kid.

    I don't usually read too much into these feelings and dreams, but sometimes if it gives me such a strong emotion of urgency, then I will pay attention. Other times, I don't heed it too much [and it usually lands me in trouble...you think I'd learned by now..].
    Don't hate me because you're beautiful.

    I have had times where I will be thinking of someone and then the next minute they will just text or call me out of the blue.

    I also have issues with dream deja vus. Sometimes it's exact things, like I find myself sitting at a table and picking up a random magazine and then realizing I'd sat at the exact same table with the exact same magazine in a recent dream. This also occurs with just seeing random objects.

    I don't usually have full visions though. That's really fascinating...
