Who doesn't know Yoda – the last Jedi knight who survived the Great Clone War and who became Luke Skywalker's master on the original episode V of the Star Wars saga? We all fell in love with his simplicity, strength of character, wisdom and particularly with his truncated phraseology.
"Already know you that which you need."
Master Yoda had the uncanny skill to perceive events happening light years away. As a Jedi knight, he could influence your choices, see what was beyond your thoughts and even predict the future.
As much as I would love to have his abilities, as far as Jung's personality type theory and the Myers-Briggs assessment goes, an intuitive is not a sage – like Master Yoda, walking around in robes, holding a crystal ball and deciphering your destiny. (Oh, my!)
According to the MBTI instrument, intuition (N) is one of the 8 cognitive functions, which are displayed differently in each individual. Intuition, combined with "Sensing", represents the way we take information and perceive the world.
Being an intuitive means you tend to give preference to abstract ideas and what is "between the lines." Your focus is generally more on the big picture instead of step-by-step approach. Intuitives are attuned to possibilities and prefer to focus their attention in the meanings and patterns of information. They usually thrive on change, new ideas and variety. They prefer imaginative solutions and may be impatient with details. They go beyond what is real or concrete and focus on meaning, associations and relationships.
Some people may be surprised to know that intuitives can be extremely down-to-earth and matter-of-fact individuals. Famous reported intuitive names are Tom Brokaw, Jacqueline Kennedy Onasis, James Taylor, Terry Gross (PBS's Fresh Air), Helen Keller, William Shakespeare and John F. Kennedy, Jr.. It seems that if you are an intuitive, you are in good company.
