    Thank you:blush:

    My apologies, I had one of the worst confrontations of my life with someone I loved dearly recently and i think I've got my guard up against people.

    Wishing you a good'ay.

    I had the same issue with my ex-INFP boyfriend. His basic slogan was "Life is suffering." He thought it was stupid to ponder so deeply about life, that intuition was just being judgemental. He liked to say about himself that he was a walking contradiction, but personally I saw it as he would say whatever benefited his argument. Just be careful, many INFP's have a passive aggressive streak, and instead of directly addressing something they claim their nice by handing a fake compliment they themselves do not even believe. Somehow they think lying by ommission no matter what makes them a better person. It can be very draining to hear whats not possible.

    We need to get clear here about the definition. Are we talking about the "spiritual" intuition and subconscious, or are we talking about the "scientific" version of it? If it's the latter, let him read neuroscience. If it's the first, he might be right.

    Jesus do I always speak like that?

    Didn't realise I spoke like such an academic twat. Two years perspective is really illuminating!

    It’s how your brain works, empaths. As you know there are two sides of your brain. Each side has some specialized areas. On one side of the brain there is a language function and is thought to also be involved in your internal Narrative. The other side does have that so it “talks” to you through what you are perceiving as intuition. Gut feelings, a sense of something. All that stuff. People can have worked to develop their natural strengths, sometimes at the expense of making weaknesses weaker. Or be balanced. Empaths have extremely talented areas of the silent brain. That’s why it feels like it comes out of no where. Creativity, flow, all that stuff- silent half. It’s a thing look it up. The original poster’s boyfriend may just not have a strong silent side and isn’t aware of it as much. Can’t conceive of it.

    I’m a neuroscientist, I’m not talking out of my ass. It’s really interesting stuff. You have to read the studies where they sever the lobes for epilepsy. There’s a lady who was trying to quit smoking and if she lit up with one hand the other one would spontaneously slap it out of her mouth. No lie. Shit is fascinating.
