    MBTI+: Four Psychic Modalities and Two Intuitive Modality Preferences

    Melanie Beckler and Erin Pavlina mention the psychic modalities in people, which are ways in which people tap into the Source of creative-thinking manifesting in physical form, that transcends the bodily needs and desires. The psychic modalities are like how people are born as introvert or extrovert, thinking or feeling, intuitive or sensing. However, there also appears to be two intuitive modalities, in which people have a preference for, similar to how people are either right-handed or left-handed. The intuitive modalities help with examining or judging situations and experiences. The following goes into detail about the six modalities (four psychic and two intuitive modalities).

    The four psychic modalities, with their descriptions, are:

    Claircognizant or Claircognizance: "Clear knowing" or the ability to get information as a direct download. People who has this as their dominant psychic modality identify with the phrase: "I just now it".
    Clairaudient or Clairaudience: "Clear hearing" or the ability to hear information presented as a voice. People with this dominant psychic modality identify with the phrases: "that little voice says" or "my little voice tells me".
    Clairsentient or Clairsentience: "Clear feeling" or the ability to feel or sense something in the body pretaining to a situation or experience, or with regards to making decisions. People who has this as their dominant psychic modality identify with the phrase "I have a bad (or great) feeling about this", or "I don't feel good" or "I feel great about this".
    Clairvoyant or Clairvoyance: "Clear seeing" or the ability to see something in the mind's eye about a situation, or when making a decision. People with clairvoyant dominant say things as "I saw that coming", or "no wonder I was getting those images".

    The two intuitive modalities are:

    Clairalient or Clairalience: "Clear smelling" or the ability to translate experiences, situations, or decisions. People who prefer this like to translate experiences, people or situations into smells. They identify more with phrases such as "this smells fishy" or "it smells wonderful".

    Clairgustant or Clairgustance: "Clear tasting" or the ability to translate experiences, people, and situations into tastes. They can judge whether a situation or person is pleasant by getting a taste in the mouth. People with the claigustant dominant intuitive modality prefer phrases such as "that tastes really good", "it's so tasty", or "that left a bad feeling in my mouth".

    These modalities also show up in physical objects, or manifest themselves physically. The following examples use wrist watches, pocket watches, dogs, cats, and camouflage as some of the many objects that the modalities can present themselves. The psychic modalities show up as how they appear, while the intuitive modalities show up as either light or airy (clairalience), or heavy or down-to-earth (clairgustance).

    Psychic modalities and intutive modality preferences in watches:

    Wrist watches have the clairgustance as the intuitive modality, while pocket watches have clairalience for intuitive modality. For the psychic modality, certain watches have all four about equally present, with none psychic modality dominating. In terms of watches, indications of it being claircognizant include simple interface, and "clean" look. Indications of watches being clairaudient include square borders, and looking like it can give off sounds. Indications of watches being clairsentient include having a heavy set frame. Indications of watches being clairvoyant include having a visually stunning interface, full of details and intricacies.

    Psychic modalities and intutive modality preferences in camouflage patterns:

    Camouflage designs also have modalities, possibly reflecting the modalities of the person who designed the camo patterns, as well as the people who selected the patterns for service. At times, the camouflage pattern will exhibit characteristics of all four psychic modalities, with no one dominating.

    Clairgustance camouflage patterns have the feel of "you can almost taste it", while the clairalience camouflage patterns have more of the "it smells heavy" or "there is a light fragrance" feel. Claircognizant camouflage has the "we are all one and together" feel, while the clairaudient camouflage has the "feeling great" feel. Clairsentient camouflage has the "tying everything together" look, while the clairvoyant camo has the "intricate and complex" look.

    Psychic modalities and intutive modality preferences in dogs and cats:

    Claircognizant dogs appear to be very pack-oriented, while claircognizant cats look "eager to please".
    Clairaudient dogs appear alert and attentive, while clairaudient cats look inquisitive and aware.
    Clairsentient dogs appear introspective, while clairsentient cats look reflective.
    Clairvoyant dogs appear "ready to roll", while clairvoyant cats look attentive and ready.

    Clairalience-preference dogs have a longer looking face, with lighter-looking lower jaws
    Clairgustance-preference dogs have more of a protruding jaw, and heavier on the bottom of the face

    Clairalience-preference cats have a longer snout, with lighter-looking skull
    Clairgustance-preference cats have more of a punched-in looking face, and heavier-looking skull

    For the wrist watch, there are wrist watches where they are made for clairalience people, in which the wrist bands are made out of stone-looking material, and are fairly big and "fancy". On the other hand, for the pocket watches, it could be that steel chains are preferred by clairgustance people, while those with nylon strings or related material, are for clairalience people.

    I don't know if this is a thing, but I've experienced a number of these at least one time.

    Most prevalent for me is clairvoyance, but rather than getting images out of nowhere I think it's more of a logical process of seeing the data I've ingested over time and where these may lead.

    I've been reasonably accurate on world events, and I used this 'ability' in conjunction with Maths when I was Forecasting energy demand for a company I worked for. Sometimes, even the most sophisticated model won't pick shifts in politics/economy fast enough and it's difficult to code everything in a model anyways.

    Re the clairgustance or clairaliance I can only recall times when I used phrases associated with the former. I actually use phrases like that quite a bit, and bad situations do leave a bad taste in my mouth, so there's that.

    This image is from the Champion Temperaments, though appears to also apply to the four modalities. It's interesting to note that the claircognizant and the clairsentient MBTI+ INFJ are both of the clairgustance intuitive modality, while the clairvoyant and the clairaudient MBTI+ INFJ are of the clairalience intuitive modality.

    Carol Tuttle mentions four types in her book, Dressing Your Truth. I have identified how Carol Tuttle's four types relate to the psychic modalities mentioned by Erin Pavlina:

    Type 1: Clairaudient ("Clear hearing")
    Type 2: Claircognizant ("Clear knowing")
    Type 3: Clairsentient ("Clear feeling")
    Type 4: Clairvoyant ("Clear seeing")

    In light of this, I'm 2-3, so claircognizant primary and clairsentient secondary (I use clairsentience often to confirm my feelings-thoughts, having been derived using claircog). I have found this information about Carol Tuttle and her work in this post: https://www.personalitycafe.com/othe...ol-tuttle.html

    Here is a diagram showing the Modalities and Champion Temperaments together, using INFJ, SoCom, hands-on learners, physical intimacy love language, Naruto characters as examples:

    Besides Sichuanese and American English, where the four psychic modalities are about equally present, the four psychic modalities also have their intutiive preferences. However, in this example diagram, they are not given. For example, Cantonese is Clairaudience-Clairalience, while Mandarin Chinese is Clairaudience-Clairgustance, though only Chinese is listed for Clairaudience. Similarly, Shanghainese is likely Clairsentience-Clairalience, while German is Clarisentience-Clairgustance, though only German is listed for the Clairsentience example. I will likely update this diagram when I have more language samples to use.

    It's likely that clairgustance people like to chew using the right side of their mouth, while clairalience people like to chew using the left side of their mouth
