    Yes, I do consider my ability to accurately predict the future to be "foresight."

    I would call it perspicacity, but yes...

    Yes I do have it.

    I believe I have good foresight and yes, I'm suprised by the number of people who appear to lack it. I can't predict everything that will happen in the future but what I do is anticipate future consequences of my present actions and where things might be headed based on the state of things now. I would guess Ni would be the best fit cognitive function for foresight.

    I think the people who seem to lack the most foresight have weak Ni. Some of them are Se dominant types who live for the moment and don't think or care much about future implications.

    Yes. I find myself so focused on what is coming that I'm often blind to what is going on in the here and now. It was really bad when I was younger, less so now.
    The only time when this really fails me is when my emotions are running high...I get too absorbed in how I feel to see clearly.

    The amount of foresight I have is maximized by the amount of interest I have in a given phenomena.

    If something is very important to me I do whatever planning/preparation/research/logistical maneuvering/ad-hoc configuration/etc. needed to achieve my objective.

    I don't really see the need to try to guess the rest of my life though.

    The best outcomes I've always achieved are those when I was completely present and focused in the moment.

    If I'm out to get something, I'm out to get something, period. Otherwise I just chill out and enjoy my wonderful life.

    E6 and Ne help a bit but really my foresight is quite shitty, despite wishing otherwise. I am trying to train my little shadow Ni. =_=;

    I have it in spades. Those without it from my experienced are pretty handicapped.
