A couple of months back, i viewed myself as lucky. I would pretty consistently guess the time, what would happen, whatever. Of course, i was rarely 100%, but always had a 'knack' for knowing, sometimes i really KNEW, sometimes it was a subconscious feel.
Now, i attribute it to intuition (which i need to study more, as it certainly intrigues me).
F.ex: I do not have a higher chance of winning the lottery then someone else, but i do have a higher chance of guessing right (without consciously thinking, f.ex using logic) then others when it comes to topics where i have
some sort of insight, be it what will happen, how much a certain stock will go up or whatever, I'm trying to trust myself when it comes to these kind of things, to let it evolve, as i feel if i do, will get a shortcut to my goals.
INFP's use auxiliary Ne which deals in intuitively analyzing what exists around you and what WILL exist. It is the reading function whereas Ni, the other form of intuition, is a writing function that deals in not surveying your surroundings to predict what will happen but manipulating it to make what you want happen.
INFP's, among other Ne users, have the ability to look past a persons outer layer and look at who the person really is on the inside (whether they want you to or not. which is why some people don't like Ne users ).
They read and judge things for what's inside the book, not just what's on the cover.
I'm sorry if i gave you false hope, it was meant as an example of how 'I' work, i do not at the moment deal in day trading or such w:sad: (I will in the future though, will be fun to see how that goes :tongue
When it comes to subjects where i have some sort of knowledge, my guesses will 'usually' be 'correct'.
Let's say a occurrence has a 50% chance of occurring, i do NOT have a higher chance of it happening then anyone else, but if i have some sort of external knowledge (be it conscious, or unconscious), I think my intuition influences my chance of success.
if anything i wrote this date seems completely insane, i will refer to "Three hearts, strongest brew" (a 10% beer f.y.i , though I'm on the perfect intellectual border, in my opinion of course, which means i might actually make some sence for a change).
I'm right a lot of the time, with friends, and people still don't listen to me,
well what can you say, you just have to silently let them get on with it they wont listen anyway,
Oh yeah. Right a lot of the time. I keep it on the DL, tho. It raises husband's blood pressure if I mention how *right* I always am, too often. I know it, he knows it, why torture him w/constant "I TOLD YOU SOs".
I'm sure if we glanced over test scores that wouldn't be the case, but in a general way do you find yourself usually making the right call on something?
I was just thinking over some of the girls I have dated, which are usually a little stubborn and defiant. We'll often butt heads (in a cute way) about something and predict the outcome. Well, according to them I'm "right" a disgusting amount of the time. Does that mean they listen to me more often? Helll noooo
If anything, I think they start to tune me out a little bit more. Part of me thinks it's because they want to prove me wrong on something while the other part says that maybe they prefer that unpredictability on certain things. I'll admit I like being wrong and I like being put in those unpredictable situations, maybe they do too.
With that in mind, I wonder if that can make us "annoyingly right most of the time?"
Any similar experiences?
