    It isn't sufficient enough for you to know that 1 + 1 = 2. You have to know *why* 1 + 1 = 2.

    That's an intuitive thing? Great more confusion lol.

    You know you're an intuitive when someone is talking to you and you space out thinking in tangents for several minutes and when you come to, the person who was talking to you has left and you can't figure out why because you were only gone a second.
    (just guessing again)

    YES! Math always bothered me, because you just memorize "facts," but there's no justification or reasoning provided for those facts. Why am I supposed to trust this rule? "Because I said so! It's in your book! BLAH BLAH BLAH!" That's really not good enough for me.

    I just have a question about that. Does that also apply to spirituality? I was never satisfied with those "facts" taught in church or catholic school. I need more dammit! And would that make judeo-christians naturally mostly sensors if that's the case because they don't seem to question? It doesn't seem right but I'm just asking.

    I can relate to that. Just being told that something 'is' isn't enough for me. To name one example, I stay out of Big Bang/evolution vs. creationism debates because I don't believe in either. I don't think God created the earth in seven days, and not only can the other side not answer why the big bang happened, they can't explain how. With math, though, absolutely none of it interests me to begin with, so the why of that doesn't really matter because I don't think even knowing that would help me grasp it. lol

    It was a college class.

    I've thought about it, and I think it's more likely to be effected by the orientation of our Perceiving functions (Sensing and iNtuition). Se and Ne are both extroverted Perceiving functions and thus are always seeking more information. They probably wouldn't be satisfied just with what people told them to believe. They'd need more.

    Ok thanks I guess that means we're in the same boat just, *struggles to think of a good metaphor*, paddling with different kinds of oars? Do you also feel you need more in that realm, not just academics? I certainly am with both.

    You know you're an intuitive when you are likely able rip apart my crappy attempt at metaphors lol

    I always tried really hard to accept religion because it seemed like I was supposed to. The problem was that no, I couldn't just accept what I was being force-fed, because it just didn't even make logical sense. Bah.
