    Default Sensing and Intutiting

    Okay, I realize there are probably a billion sources on S v N. However, I am not certain which are valid.

    Any tips?

    By the way, I meant intuiting...geez must be getting tired.

    S = right
    N- wrong

    I am the only valid source. Anything else I can help you with?

    No problem. That happens to even us perfect "S" people.

    S= blind
    n= slightly less blind

    okay just kidding!


    S= concrete, here and now, in this moment, facts.
    N= abstract, focused on future, theory over facts.

    Sensors experience the external world as it actually is.

    And for some strange reason N's prefer, well, perhaps this image will explain it better than I can.

    Another way of thinking about Sensing vs. Intuition is

    Sensing: A powerful way of knowing not just what is but the way it's supposed to be. For example, Sensing types see the value in traditions, recognize how a room or desk or process can be most efficiently organized.

    Intuition: A powerful way of knowing what could be. Whereas Sensing types are rightfully suspicious of hunches that come from nowhere, Intuitive types who are allowed to nurture that ability learn that their sense of what should change or what could be different or what to try that hasn't been tried before are often dead on.
