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.
|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|
