In this episode Joel and Antonia explain the difference between Introverted Intuition and Extraverted Intuition.

In this podcast you’ll find:

  • Intuition is an effectively advanced pattern recognition. It is a learning style basically speculating the train of thought following what’s behind the curtain.
  • Intuitives are not the majority so the world is not designed for them.
  • People who have sensory learning styles aren’t comfortable speculating. They want more information to be safe and secure.
  • We don’t have enough explanation why some people see the world profoundly
  • Everyone uses intuition to some degree.
  • Intuition isn’t judgmental. Its nature is really just trying to understand what’s happening behind the curtain.
  • Inside us, our intuition is working in conjunction with our mind’s ability to evaluate the information it takes in. All by itself, intuition is totally non-judgemental. It’s simply a process of learning.
  • 2 types of intuition: Introverted vs Extraverted Intuition
  • Introverted Intuitive Style = Perspective. Perspectives have the ability to watch their own minds form a pattern. When they hear people talk or do something, their mind will shift into the other person’s perspective and get a sense of what’s going on.
  • Perspective users oftentimes don’t reveal this kind of genius. They almost have the ability to predict future events.
  • In perspectives, you are able to see how large groups of people are going to react.
  • The process of learning takes some time to develop. Perspectives are very easy to be distracted. It’s almost like a fragile process sometimes. If there’s a lot of sensory input, it’s hard to stay focused because it’s a fragile process.
  • When working on problem, they wouldn’t know how they arrived at the solution. If they get distracted, they might never be able to pick up the trail again.
  • Out of the 25%, only 10% are using perspectives.
  • Perspective people tend to have a lot of one sided relationships and so they have very unique needs.
  • Because they don’t have that many people who understand how it works, it’s difficult for them to rise up to become better version of themselves.
  • Profiler Training monthly Q&A call.
  • Extraverted Intuition = Exploration. Unlike perspectives who are slow paced, exploration on the other hand, is more about exploring the world and understanding patterns on the outside world. They tend to be very interactive and engaging.
  • They’re able to understand the connections and relationships to things that other people don’t. It’s about new connections.
  • Intuition is interested in speed of information and depth of insight. Both types of intuition do this but Exploration is more inclined to speed of information and Perspectives likes the depth of insights.
  • The world needs both styles of intuition. Without this, we would actually stagnate.
  • The more you give yourself permission and make your intuition more powerful and strong, you could be truly unstoppable in making great things.

    I think you made Ni sound waaay more valuable and interesting than Ne. Bias against your own Driver, perhaps?

    Sensors to Intuitives: “Wow you are so talented and amazing, but if you could be more like us that would be great!”
    Do we Intuitives say to sensors “Wow you show up on time or early and balance your checkbooks monthly, but can you be more talented and amazing??”
    No, because they can’t.
    There are many sensors I love, and sensors are talented and amazing in their own mortal way (snicker). My husband is an ISFJ and he comes from a family of sensors and I’m an ENTP (I like a challenge). I find it frustrating that they don’t realize the very reason we are smart, innovative or what ever is that are not like them in many ways and while we can and do squeeze like a round peg into their square hole it’s uncomfortable. And all the while they never even ponder or attempt squeezing into our mindset. ¯\(ツ)
    Thanks for this terrific podcast.

    I’m INFP and I love what you said about “marinate” and everything you said perfectly describes me. For example, if I’m analyzing a work of literature, like a poem, I will do a pretty good analysis of it with my Ne. However, after some time (unfortunately after I turn it in), it will slowly become a more coherent synthesis and converge into a fuller picture over time in my mind. As if, my Ni were just slowly working in the background. Especially if it really resonated with me. I enjoyed reading your comment!

    Intuition as a whole is a process that collects and categorizes situations, thoughts and ideas. It’s reflective when we’re alone and silent, and hyperactive when we’re out in the world. I believe we all use the perspective part of intuition and the exploratory part equally. I explore my thoughts in my universe and not only find odd connections between them, but I also fill in the blanks in my bigger picture to further expand on a certain idea, situation or thought. Perhaps I’m wrong or even overreaching in saying this, but we can’t have one without the other. Just like left handed people or right handed ones, they use the preferred hand, but they can’t function without the other one.

    I truly enjoy your podcasts, I listen to them before going to bed. They help me fill in the blanks in my own thoughts and I thoroughly appreciate that. Joel and Antonia, may I suggest making a podcast expanding further on how these two styles of intuition interface and bring about a new understanding of the world.

    I felt like the portrayal was mostly of intuitive thinkers in this podcast and not so much about intuitive feelers. Yes, there is one example, but most of the surrounding description on intuition seems to me to be more about the intuitive thinkers in this comparison between Ne and Ni. Or it could just be me… that said, the reason why I wrote this is because I wish that we were mentioned more. Maybe it is because the intuitive feelers blend more? And therefore harder to recognize them and harder to define how they appear? They often aren’t the stereotypical geek that can get that pass on intelligence as said in a later podcast. However, it makes it harder for me to connect to the description as it seems to be aimed to connect to a NiTe or TeNi (and Ne) audience.
