10 Traits Of An Intuitive That Often Gets Them Misunderstood By Others

misunderstood by others

Their perception on life is what separates them from the crowd. 

These are the people who take interest in theories, abstractions and exploration of things, almost non-existent in the real world. They tend to incline towards finding a deeper meaning and understanding of any given expression or thought and have more inclination towards what isn’t said or even considered than what is actually being expressed.

These 10 traits of an intuitive at times makes them feel misunderstood by others, even people who are close to them. 

1. Sparking debates:

Intuitives need to examine an issue from all perspectives which allow them to comprehend the actual meaning of any situation or a topic.  The reason they jump into debates is solely because of their own personal need to improve their understanding of the topic. By no means, they act   impolite or challenge others with their knowledge. They just want to inspect the legitimacy of the topic and check it from every angle to discover any shortcomings. Debating helps them to understand things in depth.

2. They live for the future.

More than the present, they love to live for the future. They are always thinking about the options and opportunities that might appear to them in 20 years. They plan ahead their goals and predicts a possible life for themselves for another twenty to thirty years from the present.

Since it is not at all possible to chalk out a plan down to every detail, it is obvious that the plan will get readjusted several times. Extroverted Intuitives (xNFPs and xNTPs) make readjustments every day, and an introverted intuitives (xNFPs and xNTPs) do this, as and when needed, although the need arises quite frequently.

3. Can flout rules.

An intuitive always has a clear conception of every self-imposed rules and strongly abides by them. . If they raise questions, they don’t mean to be rebellious; it’s just that they want to know why those rules have been framed and if the reasons are sound enough. They cannot accept illogical action, so if a rule appears to be useless or obsolete, they won’t hesitate to ditch it and do things as per their wish.

4. Over-analyzing every matter.

To an intuitive, it is not enough to merely analyze an issue but to understand the extent of its effects on the surroundings. They must understand the underlying theory that has led to its development. Intuitives won’t stop until they have understood the intangible explanation for any tangible problem that appears before them. This can really drive others around them insane.

5. Cannot accept authority.

Intuitives don’t always rely on qualification, rather they believe in  a person’s competence. Their judgments are always based on how competent others are. Intuitives know very well how inclined human mind is towards prestige and convenience, than on analysis. But that cannot deter them from questioning the established system which is accepted for decades, sometimes centuries.

6. Persistently look for variety/ variations.

An intuitive is naturally attracted to the unconventional, abnormal and the uncouth. Throughout their lives they keep on attempting to form an elaborate worldview, which explains why they make such great efforts to understand as many strange and peculiar things as possible. They are always looking for new perspectives, whether it is their studies, or their lifestyle, or anything else, and this is why the new lenses that can give them a completely different view than what they still know

  1. I have often wondered why I was so different from all others!!As a child I. Often knew things that others didn’t get! I saw a ghostly figure and scream Ed “There’s my daddy”. At the time I didn’t know my father was dead!!! I was 6 years old!!! I have dreams that come true within hours or days!!! Thank you for the help and knowledge I always thought I had!!! Wonderful and inspiring insight!!!!!

  2. Thank you for posting this! I agree with these and appreciate the effort to explain this list. (And, thank you for the correct usage of a semicolon! How refreshing that is!) However, there are several grammatical and spelling errors. Please ensure an editor proofreads these before posting the final (a good rule of thumb = 3 reviews before a final). We wouldn’t want the message to get lost among naysayers who would find these errors and improperly correlate the content to the level of intelligence; unfortunately, this happens now in social media too often. One method to lessen the possibility of incorrectly correlating is to make sure all content is written without errors or hopefully, no more than 1. It appears the writer DID have this in mind as the list flows 🙂 It is also understood that several proofreads might have been conducted. If that’s the case, it might be advisable to change editors. Best Wishes~
