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?

    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.

    That was awesome, guys! Thank you! I listened to this because I was unsure if I am an N or an S. When I took it years ago I came out an N, but close to the center, same with I and E. Knowing that I recharge internally and get drained externally made me confident on that one. T and J were so strong it was embarrassing. I’ve been working on that… LOL. Recently I took the test again and came out an S which I questioned. After hearing you discuss IS and SJ, I now know for sure I’m an S and proud of it. I love the S in me because its so sensually rich… no pun intended.
    I’m 73 and I catch myself saying the same things I heard my grandparents say when I was young and I’m probably about the same age now as they were then. What I have recently realized is that humans eventually outgrow their world. I grew up in a world which was a certain way and now I’m starting to find myself in a different world and to be honest, I’m not crazy about it. It doesn’t feel like home anymore. I know that technology is definitely a part of that equation. A computer took up a whole room in my freshman year of college. Now, I’m carrying one around in my purse, and agencies and business expect me to be able to navigate this. What I am learning about myself is that it’s sensing that is going to ground and save me. I’m moving my body more and more deeply communing with nature and I have to admit that I absolutely love the camera on my phone. Thanks for keeping it real and giving me a useful map. I find you both very intellectually stimulating.
