It took a very long time, but I've come to trust my intuition. It's even better when you can offer up an analytical argument to bolster what you already know intuitively, but I don't even find that necessary to do, unless I'm arguing with an ENTP ;-). I've also come around to thinking that a soothsayer is merely someone with heightened intuition, someone who is also perceptive enough to receive certain kinds of non-verbal cues and perspicacious enough to decipher them and know what they might mean. My INFP girlfriend is a good one for that. I wouldn't worry terribly about the utility of the information you're receiving. Sometimes it's enough to be just aware that it's happening. Let someone else micro-manage the details, and trust that you've got the big picture figured out, usually long before anyone else.
Is OP aware she's describing Introverted Intuition (Ni) which is the dominant function of INFJs and INTJs?
She also used the word "judgement." INFJs judge through Extroverted Feeling (Fe) if you have no idea what I'm talking about:

Ni works in mysterious ways ;)
I have no idea as to the type, but my great, great, grandmother predicted events a day ahead of time - people would check with her in making plans. . She is reported to have said one morning, "I see Death. . . " and no more, and a close relative died later that day.
No, I do not want that.
There is a theory that says that intuition comes from a universal or global consciousness, or the tapping into it.
Most of it comes from the beginning of the 2th century; but the theories died with the second world war.
Nevertheless, there might be truth to be found in it
Everything is going to happen...our type may just have a glimpse of what may come....I would go on more but in time you "young ones" will develop you "intuition"
