    Default Do you ever just 'know' how things are going to pan out?

    Is your intuition uncannily accurate? Like for instance, I'm able to predict how relationships will turn out between people even though I'm not that close to them, yet people who are very tight with them won't see any of the stuff I notice coming.

    Why is this so?

    Is it solely an NF thing?

    Not really, no. I can guess at certain things, but I am wrong many times. More often than not, things pan out differently than I would have thought, but then I also tend to have wishful thinking. It's to the point where I feel like I have no control over my life, although I also reject the idea of fate. I think there are just too many variables in life.

    There are circumstances in which there are clear signs, but then I'm usually not the only one who saw it coming. It's usually when I am outside of a situation also. I have a hard time being objective when I'm in the middle of it.
    Often a star was waiting for you to notice it. A wave rolled toward you out of the distant past, or as you walked under an open window, a violin yielded itself to your hearing. All this was mission. But could you accomplish it? (Rilke)

    I think everyone has a certain idea how things are going to pan out, it's just that people treat it differently.

    People who think they are psychic and know how everything pans out, tend to be pussies, who dont dare shit, while other people who make mistakes tend to trust more easily, in the hope of hope.

    It's your choice, but one thing is for sure, you aint a psychic.

    I must say that I associate the ability of NFs to "feel the future" and "know what's going to happen" with the prophecies of Nostradamus. If you make a 1,000 predictions, and 5 are right, it is not appropriate for you to invest lots of money in buying lottery tickets.

    ^ I must be a bit rusty then is all.

    Generally, I can put the dots together with relationships and predict.. but I'm bad at vocalizing feelings that I get. Articulating anything is something I struggle with. Also, contrary to popular belief, sometimes i am wrong. ... I know.

    What I DO do a lot is think to myself for a split second "Huh. That guy might hit into the back of my car if he wasn't paying attention and fails to slow down." .. and then he does. even though normally I wouldn't bother with hypothetical thoughts that negatively effect me.

    I'll pretend I didn't read that.

    This is a good practice if you believe in manifest destiny! Don't think of shit that you don't want to happen!

    I make all sort of predictions in my head(I try not to tell people). I'm almost always wrong though.
    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.
