    Question "gut feelings" in Model A

    I'm wondering if a gut feeling (something that you "just know" but can't articulate your reasoning behind it) is a product of unconscious functions.

    Alternatively, are they related to intuitive and/or ethical functions regardless of a person's type?

    Irrationality, as a concept, acts to re-frame thoughts with the world around them and relates them in this way; it's like putting on different glasses. Each one will change how things are taken in and perceived. This creates different perspectives and ways of understanding and seeing things and taking action.
    Rationality, as a concept, acts to frame thoughts with the world around them; it's like sticking with one pair of glasses. Everything seen through them is referenced back to the same pair. This creates a stable and structured way to relate and judge experiences. It can lead to an objective method for understanding or taking acting, although it relies on (or requires) framing things in a particular way, rather than many ways.

    So irrationality (Ne, Se, Si, and Ni) would seem to relate to gut feelings more than rationality because it doesn't require a reference point for relating that gut feeling in order to have or act on it; it simply understands the gut feeling in a certain way that is immediately justifiable to its particular way of perceiving. Relating becomes unnecessary to irrationality and is probably condescended by the rational expectation that it must be related in a conclusive manner when in actuality, rationality and irrationality are mutually exclusive demands that mock and contradict each other.
