    INTJ - The Scientists

    Yes, a vendor trying to fake smile all the time, didn't like him from the first sentence he said.

    But I've been wrong few times as well, two of my friends which I found very nosy and intrusive when I first met them (both ENFP I think), now I consider them some of my favorites.

    Most of the time my gut feeling is accurate, I just try to avoid these kind of people and save us both trouble.

    The amount of "correct gut-feelings" I have about individual(s); is perhaps as frequent as it is saddening ... The perception(s) generated by (Ni)-reflecting onto people are not exclusively bound to the INFJ; while perhaps, may be more numerous and prioritized differently.

    Of course, sometimes (in spite the [giggity-go] ego-fluffing cheeseball stereotypes) it is rather relieving and rewarding in a sense, to just be flat-out wrong on quite a few of these profusely "intuitive" occurrences. .....

    Indeed, I wish (Ni) was wrong about 60% of the time to the proportion which it is right--no question (Ni)-reflects best on negatives most due to patternized recognition/high-functioning link-making.

    mistrust a lot more than dislike. and now that i think i'm much more familiar with it and i just process the gut feel in real time, it often doesn't even amount to mistrust. it's just a cognizant version of wariness and i classify the person where their bad vibe places them and move on.

    back in the day though, before i was good at interpreting it, it used to feel exactly like the way your body behaves when you eat something bad. eventually you are going to throw up, but there's often that long long uneasy phase where you can't even identify what you feel as nausea. you just feel uneasy and sort of itchy in some deep bizarre place, and then finally it all comes together and you have 20 seconds to find a bucket.

    I do that all the time and I don't think I've ever been wrong. I tried ignoring that feeling once or twice thinking I was maybe being a dick for judging people too quickly but I was proven fast enough that my gut feeling was right.

    I know at first glance when I'm gonna get along with someone too. I was at work a few years ago and a new guy started working in my department. I looked at him from afar and thought "huh, for some reason I feel I'd get along with this guy". I eventually spoke with him and found out we had a ton of stuff in common.

    Yes, though I think it's a bit dangerous to assert too much accuracy, I always try to be open-minded if wary and to double check my initial intuitions. Still, I've gone through a period lately where I've been intentionally giving the benefit of the doubt to people I would not otherwise have given it to just to see what will happen if I do, and so far it's turned out that yes, I am usually right when my brain puts me on alert about someone.

    Sorry No.
    Reading people from just first impression I can not do.
    I need more information, and a little back and forth. However, you give me a couple of sentences and I am pretty good at summing it up.
    I have heard of this premonition, ability. I do wonder, how much of this self claimed ability effects the further relationship? When you have preconceived notions, how much of you being right is a self profiling prophecy? What could the other person do, if you have already put them in their box? They would have to perform above and beyond for you to reconsider your initial gut instinct opinion?
    I don't mean to be confrontational, just asking to further the conversation.

    INTJ - The Scientists

    I completely and thoroughly lack this superpower. One of many reasons I'm certain I have (mild) Asperger's. I can't read individuals to save my life.

    A crowd, though.....heh <evil grin> or an organization, easy-peasy.

    I married an ISTJ who is the world's greatest B.S. detector. He's like a seeing eye dog for me, and this allows me to go out in the world without getting my ass kicked or heart broken too terribly often.

    Something someone once told me:

    "If there are over millions of perspectives and none of them are wrong, why not adopt the one you enjoy the most?"

    Understanding people gives you a guide in how to behave. As an INTJ, it helps me resonate with people with more empathy.

    I have a very high sense of intuition because I think about people a lot, and tbh, it's very alienating.

    Pretty much what Catwalk said. I'll add that I still find it necessary to at least make an effort in testing out my assertions by talking with the person and getting them to open up a bit. Even if my gut feeling is correct, I'll still keep my communication skills sharp by taking the initiative to start a conversation, and in some cases I'll gain some knowledge I otherwise wouldn't have. The rare instances where I do end up being wrong really help stop me from becoming overly cynical (something I've admittedly struggled with) and help me gain a better understanding of the perspective of others.
