In this podcast Joel and Antonia chat about the deeper differences between sensing and intuition.


In this podcast you’ll find:

  • What are some current trends of how Sensors and iNtuitives are viewed?
  • Why is it important to acknowledge the nuances between Sensors and iNtuitives?
  • How do Sensors and iNtuitives desire to understand the world?
  • The definition of Sensing
    • The two styles of Sensing: Sensation (Extraverted Sensing) and Memory (Introverted Sensing).
    • Why might the current world be challenging for Sensors?
      • What important asset can Sensors bring to the world right now?
    • What is the nucleus of what it means to be a Sensor?
  • How has our connection to the sensory world changed and how does it affect us?
  • The definition of iNtuition
    • What’s at the nucleus of being an iNtuitive?
    • How do iNtuitives understand the world?
      • What’s a pitfall for iNtuitives?
    • How does iNtuition benefit the world?
    • The two styles of iNtuition: Perspectives (Introverted iNtuition) and Exploration (Extraverted iNtuition).
  • Why does iNtuition and Sensing need to rely on each other to be complete?

    I loved the analogy of terrain vs maps! It got me thinking about the different expressions of functions within that analogy. If ideas/information were roads:
    Se would be the present experience of walking down the road.
    Si would be the context of the experience of previous roads that brought you to this point.
    Ne would be generating maps that show the connections between roads.
    Ni would be dropping a pin and describing where you could go from that point if you were there.
    The judging functions would be the directions we give ourselves based on the reasoning of the paths or the values found on different paths.
    Ti would be the path based on either terrain or map that has the most direct route to your destination based on the possible paths you’re aware of.
    Te would be the path that has been tested and will get you to your destination the fastest.
    Fi would be the path that allows you to experience your locations of personal interest.
    Fe would be the path that let’s you visit society’s favorite landmarks.

    Thoughts? This makes sense to me but there are so many different ways of describing the functions with the analogy.

    Thank you for this interesting podcast. I’m new to MBTI and reading, listening, analyzing a lot about it. I was wondering what introverted sensing with strong introverted intuition would look like? I tested as an INTJ, but I recognize more ISTJ in me. As I tend to build on the past rather than pondering completely new ideas and how they might play out in the future. I wish :-).
    I do however, recognize being analytical and viewing things from multiple perspectives. So much that it’s hard to follow a plan when solving a problem as I tend veer off in different directions as different aspects of a problem catch my attention. I like abstract theories and concepts, but can’t envision a theory in practice without a real world example. Practical application of theory is meaningful to me, but I wouldn’t say I’m a very practical person. Any way, I guess I’m trying to get a better grasp on Si vs Ni. Any insights would be very welcome! Thank you

    This podcast helps me understand why people have either Memory and Exploration in their car or Sensation and Perspectives.

    That quote- personal experience is universal in a way nothing else can be – describes Ni – Se dancing.

    The visual I get is the hole in Ringo’s pocket in the movie Yellow Submarine. His finger explores the hole and it suddenly expands and become the threshold to another world.

    Si, mulling over life experience in post-production is aided by pattern recognition to create meaning and provides grist for the Ne mill.

    Certainly S or N will dominate, but it is so intriguing how cleanly the pairs dance with their own partner. I never understood that until this discussion. Thanks

    Thanks for a great episode. One thing that struck me was, when you explained introverted sensing, and the way it “organises” past experiences is that I (ENFP) have a very hard time trusting my experience (meaning competence) in certain areas, and I suffer from serious imposter syndrome no matter how much experience I gain. This made me do the reflection that this could in part be caused by my inferior introverted sensing, which doesn’t have the skill to adequately view my past.
