In this episode Joel and Antonia answer the question “What is intuition?”

In this podcast you’ll find:

  • What is Intuition? Intuition is a pretty abstract word. It’s something many of us rely on for quick judgments and often life-altering decisions.
  • Intuition is a particular way that people learn information.
  • There are two ways in which people learn new information.
  1. Through their 5 senses.
  2. Intuition – not relying on those senses in order to understand and learn new information. Therefore, relying on advanced pattern recognition.
  • You can’t directly interact behind the curtain, but you can deduce what’s going on behind the curtain based on the pieces of information you get in front of the curtain.
  • Sensory people are looking to find something that’s reliable and can be verified.
  • Intuitives are not dependent on things that are reliable. Someone who’s using intuition to learn puts more emphasis on speed of information and depth of insight on information. They will sacrifice verifiability for speed and depth of insight.
  • Intuitives are more comfortable with speculation and so they’re willing to take risks. Eventually, they’re going to become more and more proficient with it.
  • When it comes to pattern recognition and speculation, intuitives are getting better of taking risks and accurate speculations.
  • Although sensors may have an intuitive piece on them, they don’t become efficient with it because they’re not comfortable with its nature and process.
  • 75% of the population in the US are sensory and only 25% are Intuitives.
  • Everyone is creative. We all have a creative element inside of us. Some of the most creative people use a sensory as a form of learning.
  • The greatest artists in the world are sensors. The big difference is that Intuitives have a tendency to create something the world has never seen because they’re looking for things that can only be imagined. Sensors on the other hand, when they’re creative, have a tendency to make something new that already has a sensory platform.
  • There’s no argument that both are valid ways of learning.
  • Some people tend to hide their being intuitive. The Intuitives who keep going are so powerful that they end up being the people who are most celebrated.
  • If you are of an intuitive learning style, the first step is to accept it. The second step is understanding its potential and doing what you can to hone it.
  • Take courage, give yourself permission and you’re going to see a more different world.

    Thank you both so much for this most interesting topic. Being an intuitive myself I am learning to take a much closer look at who and what I am through listening and learning from you. I too dislike paperwork, but yet I am a collector of bits of paper, forever taken notes and surrounding myself with piles of the stuff, thinking that one day I will use that information. :))

    Thanks for the podcast,

    I’m just catching up on this intuitive series you have.

    I’m an INTJ, the easiest way I’ve found to describe intuition is being able to get from A to C in your mind without having to know there’s a B.

    Keep up the great work.

    So intuitive “results” people. Sensors “process” people. Intuitives, see the pattern of “changes” so 75% of the information is enough to make decisions or trail blaze, as the information or process will change, so the details of a “thing” or a process is not as important because it is not apart of the “big picture” which will change as the intuitive has in their minds during the “processing” of a process or a thing / new idea.

    We detect the angles of a line pointing(indicators)to the creation of circle so a there can be lines missing as we see the bigger picture which is the completed circle. Sensors have to follow the entirety of the line before stating this is a circle. Sensors then mange circles(process).

    We intuitives process the completed circle, then try to find out if there is a better shape than the circle (more results). Does the circle meet the needs of the people, place or thing.

    We are masters of connecting indicators, to create a picture of a thing or situation that may or may not exist currently.

    I loved this episode as well as the next one. I kept wishing you’d give more tangible examples of how sensors go ABCDE and Intuitive thinkers skip a step. When I get info I feel like I take all the steps to get to my answer. Then again I feel like your House MD example is logical thinking. He clearly goes step to step with his thoughts.

    Maybe because I had so many Intuitive friends growing up I don’t think rabbit hole conversations are crazy. I thought it was just a sign that a relationship was close when conversations were spastic and free flowing. I guess I have been chalking up all these Sensing people as boring or that I just couldn’t connect well with them.

    So… can you give an example of how a sensing person would go about thinking compared to an intuitive? I am stumped.

      Thanks for the feedback, Jillian. 🙂

      You are using sensing functions, yourself, they just aren’t at the forefront of how you think. For Extraverted Sensing (or what we call “Sensation”), think about a time you’ve been fully present and engaged with your surroundings. You aren’t trying to intellectualize, rationalize or create a story or narrative around the event. You’re simply in it and living it fully present. That’s as close to a pure Sensation moment as you can get. Sensation is about learning by being fully present, having high kinesthetic / body awareness intelligence and not polluting the moment with trying to explain it. Of course, Sensation doesn’t exist in a vacuum and those who have it as a skill also pair it with Authenticity or Accuracy (which helps them make sense of what they just experienced). But the function, itself, is simply being in the moment.

      To understand Introverted Sensing, or “Memory,” take that moment and encapsulate it into a memory that you can revisit later to understand how it impacted you. It’s experience plus time to ruminate and personalize. What in the moment stood out to you? What caught your attention? And how does that impact how you see yourself as an individual?

      We all use both of these processes. The next time you use either of them, see if you can catch yourself in the act and watch what’s going on for you.

      Hope that helps.

    The paperwork comments from Antonia…I feel so validated…I didn’t know anyone else who hated it so much or who literally also has manifestations about paperwork!!!!! A 30 minute paperwork job for me can be like a weight for weeks whilst I am procrastinating it, then resenting I have to do it, then the feeling of parts of my brain that are not natural to me tensing and exhausting. What others take as a ‘quick’ and ‘necessary’ job with paperwork that will apparently ‘make my life easier’, is an anethema to me!

    This was very informative thanks. It very much explains the debates and difficulties I have with my mum because we are obviously of different perceiving styles. I am glad to have my style but I don’t think I have been making the best of it. I hope to find further info from you on how I can!

    …wow. The “blending” thing is too accurate. I’m an INTJ, and I think ever since I was about four, I’ve been consciously trying to “project” as a certain type of person in order to basically streamline my existence. When I learned about MBTI a few years back, I realized that my main “mask” as I like to call it was basically the average ISFJ. Which, as I’ve learned, is either the most common or second-most common type. Of course, my tertiary Fi absolutely hates me for doing this, but Te’s desire for efficiency makes “blending” a must in most situations. Glad to know it’s something other intuitives do!
