    I "just know" how you feel...haha but for real, I always just tell people it's the vibes and that is my reason for doing something/judging something. I guess different people and actions give off readable "vibes"...people kind of except that answer...but I'm often getting away with my bull shit haha

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    As I have become older, I have learned to trust these impressions without Te vetting when necessary.
    That is exactly how I experience it too. It happens all the time. I still find that I need to trust that inner voice more - or at least do a better job of acting on the perceptions because many times I am kicking myself later about something I knew was going to happen but I didn't do something to prevent it.

    I think "I just know" people, tend more often to be people who rely heavily on their intuition and have trouble articulating why they feel a certain way. I can understand how a person summarizing their conclusions with that phrase may appear a bit illogical to people who don't rely as heavily, or maybe hardly at all on their intuition. It can be a bit difficult trying to figure out how to put abstract "I just know" sorts of feelings into words, but it seems that if you really want a person to have an understanding of why you feel a certain way, rather than just dismiss your intuition, you'll need to find a way to somehow put those intuitive feelings into words translatable for others as well who don't possess intuition as high as your own.

    On average this "just knowing" thing offer far crappier results than just looking at statistics, even if the person would be an expert in his field(this has been proven).

    And Ni dom with some stubborn view of something that is so far away from the real world that its not even funny anymore, isnt that rare thing..

    Even if this intuition might lead to correct answer sometimes, its good thing to try to back it up with some rational thinking or non biased evidence, before being accepted as truth.
