Yes, that's how I feel a lot of the time -- it's like instant knowing. On the other hand, when I instantly know something but don't know how I know it, it can cause some problems. The first is doubt. If I don't know how I got this information than how can I trust it? The second is frustration. Sometimes I'll skip the doubt part because I'll be certain of something, but I won't be able to explain to someone else how I know that. Or at least it'll come with great difficulty and NT's particularly don't have much patience with this.All of this happens to me. And I know what you're talking about with the N vs. S. I love N, and it seems like so much work for those poor S types to have to go through that thought process, while with N it's like instant knowing.
If intuition is tied so closely to our consciousness and that consciousness knows no time bounds than maybe...That sometimes happens to me. There's more to dreams than people realize. I will have a very vivid dream of myself being in a certain situation, in a certain place, and a day to a few later I'll be living my dream. It freaks me out every time =/
intuition can go beyond the present? What an exciting thought!!
