    My sense about people isn't nearly as reliable as what other NFs talk about. I grew up with an INTP friend, so logic came first before intuition about people. I've been paying more attention to Fe, though, so I think the next couple years will have a lot of function growth.

    When my intuition hits, its usually when I just glance at a person, because if I look to hard my Ni or Se kicks in before I get anything from Fe. Some days I get more of these 'snippets' than others.

    I ignored it on several occasions because I was telling myself : Don't jump to conclusions, don't be so quick to judge others... that sort of deal.

    Ignoring my intuitions usually turned out to be a mistake.

    So long story short, how much do you NFs out there rely on your intuition? Do you feel that you can accurately "read" people and predict future behaviour? There are times when I didn't trust my gut feeling and I regretted it, but I try to keep an open mind.
    I rely very much on my intuition. I usually know which type of girls to stay away from and not try to be overly friendly with. With boys, I have more of a weakness. I am more open minded and willing to tell my intuition to ssssh and just enjoy it. Sometimes, I take a chance though, if I really like the other person even if s/he is sorta shady in motives/character. Everyone I have ever allowed close to me are good people, though, overall. I highly recommend NFs to trust their intuition, it's like the gift of a sixth sense.

    I trust my intuition, but I don't necessarily rely on it. I'd prefer to first dig for answers to assuming I already have them. I can usually read people and their intentions accurately, but I still prefer to have solid proof that I'm correct.
    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    I'm good at picking out what people I'll probably have fun with. I made all my current friends in college by approaching two people at different times in the cafeteria, asking to sit with them, and having my intuition proved correct when I discovered how awesome they were. That led to meeting their friends, which led to two groups merging into one awesome group of awesome.

    So true for me as well. I also rely on my intuition, almost exclusively. I have learned to verify intuition, if I can, but you can't always do this, at least not right away. But I've found my intuition to be correct, almost all the time.

    When I enter a room, I get a sense of what people are feeling almost immediately. Recently, I intuited that a man I instantly liked I could trust to a fault and that he would always be on my side (and do me no harm). It's turned out to be very much the truth, time and again. I value intuition so much more than words, because the spoken word is like a filler to me. It's what's underneath the words that I listen to. But, if the words have a soul-truthfullness, then intuition and reality are aligned. I too have learned to cross-check intuition with questions and to listen to the answers to make sure I'm hearing the same thing as I'm feeling.

    I agree with Lauren and Tantive, same for me. It's pretty awesome we have this built in system isn't it? lol I'm just getting used to mine and becoming comfortable with it and not being "freaked out" by it. I like the way you put it, words are surface - we are searching and scanning what's under that. I love it :o)
