@smileyme:  No. I find that I an seldom interpret anyone’s situation through just one post. I get little to no sense of the people they talk about. I get a better idea of the poster’s situation through multiple posts.

depends on how well they explain their situation.

Never! I don’t think it is possible for me to identify like that after reading one post.

sometimes, if they are good writers!  I don’t think I ever get my true point across because I am a poor writer Undecided

@smileyme:   Yes, this happens to me all the time.  I usually only answer threads in which I get that “feeling,” because if I don’t get it I draw a blank.  If I get the “sixth sense feeling” about what a poster is going through or needs to hear, an answer sometimes comes to me that just feels right.

Totally. And not so much on the Bee but way more on another board I have posted on over the years. A woman once posted about having pain in her leg, and a lot of people said she may have pulled a muscle, etc. I had this nagging feeling it was something more. She lived across the country and I had never met her. I asked if she was on any medications – yep, birth control. I just KNEW it was a blood clot. I can’t explain it.

I encouraged her to go to the doctor quickly, and what do you know? Blood clotting disorder. It was actually kind of freaky because it was a pretty fluke thing based on the symptoms she described.

Obviously there is a selection bias at work here (we only remember the things we get right), but honestly, it has happened a lot over the years. FI had been amazed in the past at how I called things happening long before it would be a reasonable guess.

As an example on the bee, there was a poster who was writing about her venue and how they’d made these great exceptions for her. I just had this feeling in the pit of my stomach the venue was going to turn and not work with her. I mentioned it to her and she had every detail figured out with them, there really was no reason to think it wasn’t going to work. I just had this feeling. A couple weeks later – things turned and the venue was no longer able to meet her needs. Part of that is just being an older skeptic who has seen things go wrong, but there really was something about her posts that have me a strong intuition it was going to go sideways.

Most of the times my warnings or conclusions are just from common sense and reading between the lines, but once in awhile there is a different feeling that comes from intuition. It just has a different, more urgent vibe to it.

I am not a religious or superstitiuos person and don’t attribute it to anything higher. I am just very observant and a naturally intuitive person. Little details stick in my mind and I tend to think 10 steps down the line. I am an INTJ on Myers Briggs (so intuitive and judging are key traits for me).

My mom is the same way, fwiw.

This is such an interesting topic! 

I’ve also been “this way IRL” all my life.  A professional clairvoyant told me, when I went to her for a reading, that I’m clairvoyant, too, and she said I could read her equally as well as she could read me.  She also said people (like us) tend to believe everyone has the gift whereas, in reality, few have it to any degree.  I know I always took my gift for granted until I met her.  She said having the gift is along the lines of “everyone can sing” but, obviously, some are more talented at singing than others.  So, everyone has intuition but some have a more developed sense of intuition, naturally, than others do.  A theory is it’s hereditary, like eye color.  My grandmother had the same gift.  For the record, I’m ENFJ on the Myers-Briggs spectrum, with my E score being very close to I.

We use our intuitive gift on the Bee, yep – it’s always working and distance doesn’t cause it not to work.

Sometimes, but I’m an empath, so it just comes naturally to me. It happens IRL and online.

@smileyme:  That’s interesting! You know, the kind of strange thing is I don’t really believe in psychic abilities and all that. I sort of feel like some people are just more in tune and pick up on clues easier. Maybe that’s the same thing with a different name, but I’ve never been one to believe in psychics or the afterlife or spirits or anything like that.

@Sunfire:  That N and J look like they might be key parts of this trait! I agree it may also run in families, whether because it is genetic or if it is learned by observing other people using their senses to reach conclusions.

@vorpalette:  A funny thing – I couldn’t be further from an empath. I am a super logical, give me the facts, not very empathetic, suck it up kind of person. I have tons of respect for those that are, but I just share that because I think these gut feelings or whatever someone wants to call them can happen even in us cold-hearted ones!

@NAvery:  Haha!  I doubt you’re cold-hearted.  😉

I’m an empath, too, tested as “natural born,” however I rely on logic and reason most  of the time.  I also feel logic and reason can’t always explain the unexplainable and neither can science, although I have the highest respect for science.  I think there are many variations of many, many gifts; we all can admit the human brain is a remarkable instrument.

I’m an INFJ, and totally know what you mean.  It happens even more in real life.
