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.

    OMG, for so long I’ve thought that I was indeed broken. My therapist keeps asking me why I think I need to be fixed. I’m so relieved to find out that I don’t actually need to be fixed. Maybe just polished a little. Thank you for this podcast!

    Antonia & Joel-

    Tears down my cheeks.

    Deeply moving that you validated something I’ve always had -but never realized it was especially unique from others nor that it is ultimately an epic-level asset for me to boldly lead with & embrace —as opposed to hiding [for 50 yrs]. [although I still don’t have all the tools to effectively communicate this to other skeptics who will view it as ‘woo-woo’ which I totally understand]

    Thank you for a new appreciation of my Perspectives intake style & for my enhanced visceral understanding of it -which empowers me to articulate my strengths in a much more convicted & relevant way- not to mention that it helps ground my own ’amygdala’s’ perception of ephemerality about it.

    I am renewed & look forward to continuing my journey with you both.

    Best -Ann

    What Emily says. INFP but introverted intuition resonates more than extraverted intuition as described in this podcast.

    I loved the podcast but I still find it hard to determine which style of intuition I use. Maybe one of the reasons is that I identified myself as INFP many years ago, but now I am not so sure anymore. Since the driver process is unconscious, I find it hard to determine which one I use.

    Maybe someone else has commented this also, but I had to write it down before I forgot, which means I haven’t read all the other comments. The first time I listened to this podcast, I identified more with how Joel and Antonia described Exploration, even though I’m a clear Perspectives user. I listened to it again and this time figured out that the rapid fire connections they describe in connection with Exploration is just how intuition works, and that’s why their description of their processes resonated with me. The difference is that Ni has to make connections in the inner world, vs being able to make then in the outer world—so I do a lot of the same systems analysis and optimization that they describe as part of Exploration, with the main difference being that I have to learn the system first. My husband uses Perspectives primarily to understand people, motivations and board/card games, and I use it to optimize physical motion, to connect to my reading (whether for school or pleasure) more deeply, and to give thoughtful gifts. We both use it for insight into people and systems, though it does seem like Perspectives is suited to getting inside people’s heads in a way that’s difficult for every other cognitive process.

    Thanks for the podcast! I’m really enjoying my trek through the back catalog.
