For me are like imagenes or flashes about the future life of yours of another person. You actually see in your mind what is going to happen. Intuition is not premonition.
    I have those. I get my premonitions in dreams and they generally signify situations or images that I'm yet to experience, but I only realise it during the experience -like sometimes it is a false memory, but other times, I can recall recollecting that it happened in a dream the morning after. I don't know if that makes sense , it's strange and it's piqued my curiosity tenfold. How do you get yours?

Worked that way exactly and I tried to rationalize it as a deja vu sort of thing but before it happened(?) - it was in 1959 and I remember the vision and the event separately, one actual, the other a mental audiovisual presentation.
    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.
    My mum has something similiar, she states that every time she sees a person like a loved one, without teeth in a dream, that somehow, something terrible might happen to a loved one or someone we know somehow. , it's weird because every time she has told us, just like a moment or two later , we'd get a phone call or a freakin hurricane or something .

    I have both as well. Both have been very strong since I was around 15 (I'm 31 now) and I thought I was weird.

    I had a friend tell people I was being introduced to "If she has a feeling, you had better listen to it. It's crazy." That was awkward.

    However, it did and still does make me smile because even those few times, someone actually believed in my intuition. Which I struggle with believing in myself anymore. Being told to throw it out and ignore it so often, even when it's screaming at me. What can one expect. Married to an ESTP :P

    1. Learn to trust your intuition. It takes practice. But the more you perceive something intuitively and hold on to it, the more you will trust yourself.

    2. I think intuition and premonition are two separate things. Intuition to me is based on small, tiny observations which when connected lead the intuiter to a conclusion. The observations are so small and seemingly insignificant that an SF or ST would think they are unimportant. I think some NTs would share that same opinion. But to an NF, they add up. PRemonitions on the other hand are not based on any observation but some instantaneous gut feeling. I don't know if this would be called a premonition, but one time I was driving to the mall in the rain and I got a terrible gut feeling that something bad had happened to my mom. Mind you I had not even talked to her that day. Turns out in that exact moment, she had gotten into a car accident. It turned out to be a minor fender gender, so everything was ok.

    For INFJs, at times you'll want to T(h)i-nk long and hard, at other times you'll do better if you Fe-ng it. I find Daniel Kahnemann's thoughts on the topic worthwhile reading - here's an interview Sam Harris did with him.

    "Do you have any advice about when people should be especially hesitant to trust their intuitions?

    When the stakes are high. We have no reason to expect the quality of intuition to improve with the importance of the problem. Perhaps the contrary: High-stake problems are likely to involve powerful emotions and strong impulses to action. If there is no time to reflect, then intuitively guided action may be better than freezing or paralysis, especially for the experienced decision maker. If there is time to reflect, slowing down is likely to be a good idea. The effort invested in “getting it right” should be commensurate with the importance of the decision."

    I get that... I often even notice it afterwards. Sometimes I can even take me a while to make the connection and other times I notice it in the moment. I remember my dream predicted that a friend was going to have a baby... I woke up thinking it was just a dream and laughed as I couldn't imagine her with a baby. Months later i found out she was pregnant. I didn't make the connection to that dream well after the baby was born. I had another friend who had a baby, this one I knew about. I had a dream of the baby in the future when she'll be 2: she was a girl and her name was Ella. The baby turned out to be a girl and her name was Elise (Ellie for short - pretty darn close!). That one I noticed in the moment.
