Intuition – a trait that deals with deep perception of abstract, immaterial, untouchable, tasteless, invisible, obscure information through associations, patterns and symbols. Intuition is a must for recognizing flows of events, opportunities and synchronisation of processes. Intuition is sometimes called ‘the sixth sense’. The opposite of intuition is sensing.

The symbols of intuition:
– figurative intuition, – interpretive intuition.

In the international designations of sociotypes, consisting of four letters, the second letter N stands for intuition.

Here below in the table there are given main differences between sensing and intuition, which can be used when determining the sociotype of a person.

Sensing (S)
Intuition (N)
I am inclined to benefit from the advantages that are available at this moment to be excited about the memories of past or opportunities in the future
If I had to work in a factory, I would enjoy production and distribution research and design
One may rebuke me as being too conservative too oblivious and distant from the reality
In a new situation, I focus on what is present in front of me here and now what scope of changes this situation brings
