    INFJ Has your intuition ever failed you?

    Have you ever intuitively felt/thought there was a bond (someone you are ment to be with) and kept getting metaphysical (from God) sign but in the end your intuitions were wrong.

    I don't usually give my intuition the opportunity to be wrong. I tend to wait till things are almost certain before I act. More often I end up thinking, 'Crap, I saw that coming. Why didn't I do anything?'

    i think this is an Ne thing more than the Ni that INFJs use. i could be wrong. adding extra meaning to relatively small signs.

    I'm confused as to how you see that as an example of Ne, because I've always thought of Ne as more of brainstorming, seeing patterns, and thinking "outside-the-box" and Ni being more of a "visionary".



    To answer the initial question I will say yes and no, because it really depends on the way you look at it. My intuition has "failed" me when it has come to choosing boyfriends, in that I have always been dumped by the guy with whom my gut instinct was drawn to as being someone that would be good for me. So, in seeing that the relationship ended you could say that my intuition failed me. However, you could also say that I followed my gut in knowing we would be good together and we had a good healthy relationship for that X amount of time. It was never abusive (emotionally or physically), extremely short-lived, or just bad overall. It is simply that my gut instinct knew I needed to have certain experiences with that person.

    So, I guess its just the way you look at it.

    Well, I've only had this 'message from God' thing once, and that's my current relationship. I'm sure this is the girl I will grow old with though, not even considering any other scenario. So no, it has never failed me. Something that is interesting to note though: things may have gone completely different if I didn't get that intuitive feeling. Because I somehow just knew it was meant to be, I wasn't afraid to get rejected or look stupid. So I just went for it without any doubts. Since she's a very shy person, she liked that I took charge in the courting process and appeared confident.

    Maybe if I hadn't felt so sure I would've acted like a bumbling idiot (my teenage self had a history of doing that) and nothing may have happened. There's a reasonable chance I wouldn't even have done anything. I was kinda insecure back then.

    in terms of people...

    I can't use my Ni like that...

    but sometimes I don't follow it to see what happens... not a good idea...

    I rarely get it with relationships... maybe I hve not found right person yet...

    but... yeah...

    Yes. And there was a bad end to what I felt.

    Once, someone explained the pull we had towards each other as karma, that we were working out our love from another life, but that doesn't mean this life was the right time to love. Being naturally skeptical, I am not sure. But it does resonate with the un-explainable pulls I have towards some people. It works as a metaphor for the whole situation, at least, and makes me feel better about the shock to my intuitive system.

    Once. But I was young and immature. And he turned out to be a total sociopath.

    that's exactly what my Ni does if I allow it to control me and ignore what my auxiliary function is telling me. I get so focused I my goal, on what I want things to be, that I can ignore obvious evidence. Happened a lot when I was younger, hardly ever happens now.

    Personally that rarely happens with me towards someone in such a way. Lately i have had a couple of scenario's like that but i believe or think i got my wire's got crossed as far as the metaphysical signs with intuition sometimes scare me cause they have always been true. Are you use to having such sign's, intuition, and though. Do you know for sure that it was wrong for you? By the way i like your profile picture's looks like the sun is coming out of the screen and what does it say on the mermaid.
