MANIFESTATIONS OF DICHOTOMY: SENSORICS - INTUITION.
What is sensorics and what is intuition?
Sensorika is responsible for the person's perception of space, material objects of the surrounding world and specific concepts.
Intuition is responsible for the perception of time, not the material objects of reality and abstract concepts.
The term "intuition" has little to do with the usual meaning of this word, and does not include such meaning as a premonition.
And, of course, the notion "not a material object" has nothing to do with ghosts, and other otherworldly entities.
What does this mean?
Sensorik is a person oriented to the perception of individual physical objects and their characteristics, such as they exist at the moment. What is the object at the moment.
Intuity is a person focused on a large-scale perception of a group of objects or phenomena, and fixing changes in their qualities over time. What was or what will be the phenomenon.
We can say that:
Sensorik sees the picture as if close, close-up, at the distance of "outstretched hand". He sees trees that are currently: strong, rough, fragrant or dry and therefore need watering or grooming; But "does not see" the trees behind the trees.
Inutit sees the picture as if from a distance, in the future. He sees the forest as an integral organism, the processes that take place in it.As a result, it can assess the coherence of these processes, and make some assumptions about how the forest was in the past; Or forecasts, where his paths will lead.
Individual "trees" and their needs perceive worse. You can say - does not see the trees behind the forest.
As a consequence:
Sensorik in his reasoning goes from private to general. First collects the facts, then draws general conclusions.
He prefers to work with factual material, based on known facts (facts that can be "touched").
The new material is learned slowly, but in detail and remembers better.
Intuition tries to immediately grasp the essence, to see the big picture. In his arguments, it comes from the general (from the essence) to the particular. But this does not always happen, but only in the case when it is necessary to somehow justify their conclusions for others. And since it is not so easy to dress "thought forms" in physical terms, it often happens that you can hear something like "by the head" from the intuition, "because it's so necessary".
He prefers to work with theoretical material, learn new things, relying on forecasts.
The material grasps "on the fly," it works effectively with large blocks of information, but also the perception is more superficial, the one learned more quickly is forgotten.
Scope of "application":
For sensorics - this is practice. Everyday, "routine" classes, requiring attention to detail. Where the intuition gets sour and bored, the sensor will sharpen its skills and professionalism. Therefore, the sensorics make the best masters, cooks, technical operators, musicians and dancers.
The generation of something new for sensorics, in essence, boils down to a combination and recombination of facts already known to him.
For an intuition is a theory. Generating everything new, global - the area of his self-confidence. Therefore, the best researchers, technologists, composers and directors will get out of intuition.
Attention of the intuition is directed to the future. The immediate needs of the surrounding world, as well as of one's own body, are realized badly. Therefore, applied professions that require constant attention are given to them more difficult.
How is this dichotomy reflected in behavior?
Sensorics will most likely seek to detail the information. Can ask concretizing questions, or make clarifying comments: "not much, but three." In the explanations often makes subject comparisons: "Blushed like a mother's coat". If this is an artist, then, most likely, will carefully draw the details.
(Will try to "approximate" the picture)
In everyday life, "imposes" their organization: how to cook food, how to clean, how to arrange furniture, what machine to buy. He has "smart" hands.
Physiological needs are considered a natural manifestation. Perfectly aware of when he is hungry, when he is ill, comfortable or not.What he wants, or does not want.
Careful in handling time. It is difficult to make predictions, or to calculate the time, which may be required for a new action.
Without intuitive support, the sensor is difficult to "see" the direction in which you need to move, can act on luck. I do not feel the timeliness of starting an enterprise.
Inutit will seek to generalize information. From him you can often hear "in general", "in fact." (She tries to "move away", that would see the picture as a whole). If this is an artist, then most likely he will not pay attention to detail, but draw in broad strokes or abstractly.
"Imposes" its time schedule, or strategy of behavior. Now is the time to "forge iron", "prepare a sleigh", then it will be too late. Now is not the time to buy a car, they will soon fall in price, you have to buy a house - they "have a good harvest" this year.
Time is a strong trait. It is usually quite accurate to guess how long this or that process can take. He sees well the possibilities and consequences. As a rule, it always has its own forecast concerning the event of interest to it.
Physiological needs are worse. You may forget to eat, sit in an uncomfortable position, do not immediately realize that you are sick.Without sensory support in the home can "overgrow", save their obsolete things.
You can say that the sensor knows "what and how," but does not know "where and when." Inutite, on the contrary, knows when and where to move, but does not know how.
How is sensory - intuition in appearance?
Sensor often looks more dense, and broad, "resistant." Movement conscious, confident.
Extraverted sensorics looks more active, takes up a lot of space.
Introverted - more passive, "compact" well feels its relevance.
Sensor is well aware of shape, color, texture. The clothes on it fit, sits "as if poured." In it sensorics should be cozy and comfortable.
Intuit more often looks more elongated in length, "unstable". Movements are cautious, as if "touching" the space, if the introver. An extrovert, on the contrary, is mobile, but the movements are not coordinated, because of what they can stumble upon surrounding objects, break them.
It occupies little space in space, it can triple itself as a bird on a perch. Sometimes, in the territory that is required for one extrovert sensory can accommodate several intuitions at once. Especially it can be seen well in public transport.
With clothes, as with the touch component of things are more complicated. It is more difficult for him to choose the size and the things that fit together. Because of what clothes on it can not sit well, warp. Especially if intuition is an extrovert. But this does not mean that intuition has no taste.
Intuit can better feel the style. Its appearance carries more, a certain semantic load, than just a competent combination of color and form.
And once again I will remind you that a person will not always act one-sidedly. Sensorik can also see the big picture, it just takes him more time. As well as intuition, if you wish, you can get used to the application of any complexity.

A fox who wants to play, that's me
And yet the article fails to elaborate on this point, rendering it absolutely redundant. This is typology 101, first lesson. Whenever they try to isolate a process or function from the others in descriptions many people get the idea that these concepts are binary. No one uses sensation or intuition, they use both. Yet you won't find any material giving an actual rundown on how Sensorials and Intuitives mental processes happen in an opposite order. While people can't seem to get enough of discussing Duality from a romantic perspective this is what I'm interested in, and what I'm sure would be the key to deciding between types for me.

What is rationality and what is irrationality?
Rationality is the dominance in the consciousness of the process of information processing, that is, the dichotomy of ethics - logic.Orientation to the rational part of information, the part that can be understood by the mind and predicted. Analysis of the events that occurred, the derivation of regularities and the forecast of further actions on their basis.
Irrationality is the dominance in the consciousness of the process of perception, that is, the dichotomy of sensory - intuition. Orientation to the irrational part of the perceived information, the part that can be comprehended by reason and can not be predicted. That is, the concentration of attention on directly occurring events at the given moment, and changing circumstances.
The term "irrationality" in socionic meaning has nothing to do with the generally accepted meaning of this word - illogicality or lack of meaning.
Who are the rationales and who are the irrationals?
A rational is a person who, in the new situation, will be primarily focused on analyzing the information received, identifying regularities, making decisions based on these findings, and developing a certain line of behavior that he will follow.
The whole life of the rational is divided into such blocks: the stimulus is the solution, the input is the exit; Each of which has its beginning and its completion.
Consciousness is structured. The texts are divided into separate paragraphs, paragraphs, paragraphs, united within a common theme.Things are arranged on "thematic" shelves.
In everything there is a certain rhythm, order, regularity. Rational even walks, keeping approximately the same pace on all sections of the path.
Thinking is concrete. He prefers not to be sprayed. He is engaged in one thing, one particular project, to solve one specific issue. Often in the debate, one can observe a picture: one (rational) asks a specific question, the other (irrational) begins to answer from afar, and often even leaves the topic altogether. The first starts to get angry: "I asked you a question specifically!", But in response hears again, all the same.
But do not think that the rationale is like a robot fixated on any one decision taken. As a rule, there are several options for one stimulus in the diet: if the circumstances go like this, I will do it, if otherwise - then that. You can say that the consciousness of the rational is tuned to expand the flow of information. Little information at the entrance - many options for action on the output.
In any case, tries as soon as possible to put a point, to make a decision. Even if the decision is to wait for a change in circumstances.Uncertainty demobilizes him, deprives him of the opportunity to act.
Violation of plans in the form of an unplanned change of circumstances, knocking out the ration from the rut, because there is a need to develop a new plan, a new line of behavior. From the outside it can be ironed out as inaction, confusion or the need for swing, in fact, in the head of such a person at the moment there is an analysis of the changed situation.
Irrational is a person focused primarily on the perception of information; Collection of all necessary, and not so, facts for decision-making. This is a person who will strive to maximize, until the last take into account all the circumstances, before moving to some specific action.
The whole life of the irrational is the collection of different types of information, often going in parallel from different sources, and not as logically related.
Consciousness is generalized. The irrational does not aspire to structure, he is interested in collecting the maximum number of facts and as full as possible "coverage" of the picture of what is happening. As a sensitive sensor, as if to strive to be simultaneously in all places, nothing to miss. If he catches several trends in parallel, not even connected to each other, he will try to "grab" both, which makes it difficult to finish the cases to the end.
The text of the irrational is often "monolithic"; The thought in them "twists and turns", then leaving aside, then returning (or not returning) to a given topic. Answering the question asked, or doing something, can switch to another topic, then another, etc., because the perception of this new topic is already underway. As a result, it can go very far from the original question, and be puzzled: "Oh, so what am I talking about?"
Things are "stored up" just like thoughts: one on top of another into a "puff cake".
The rhythm of life is "torn" not uniform. Even when walking irrational, it slows down (for example, if you perceive that it is going to the hill), then it will accelerate (from the hill it "rolls"). The work is exactly the same. That idleness, because he wants to take into account all the circumstances, until the last: and suddenly "until Thursday" something else will change ...... the rain will go, the authorities will change their decision, "the meteorite will fall to the ground." That is accelerating, since "Thursday" is already on the way, and "the meteorite never fell".
Thus, we can say that the irrational's thinking is set up, as it were, to narrow the information flow: there is a lot of information at the entrance in order to make one decision or take one action at the exit.
Flexibly adjusted to changing circumstances. In extreme conditions, the irrational can quickly, without rebuilding, rebuild, begin to act.
Any question, if possible, tries to keep it open, loves, when it has a choice, a "spare airfield". The same applies to relationships with people. Builds relationships in no distance. If an irrational communicates with you, it means only that the irrational at the moment is collecting information, and the point in the question "whether you are a friend to him or not" may not be delivered at all, or not at all. The presence of boundaries and certainty exaggerates it, since it initially cuts off the possibility of using the accumulated information.
Myths about irrationals and rationals?
Sometimes the socionic authors intentionally exaggerate the information, presenting the rhetoric similar to the robots, which always, everywhere and everyone do in time, and strictly according to the schedule. And vice versa irratsionalov draw, sort of lax idlers and lazy. This is done for the purpose of adding color and clarity to the material, but it is not worth taking this literally. The real state of things will be more or less averaged.
Different TIMs, and even more so, different people, will in different degrees exhibit the above characteristics. And it's not necessary to demonstrate the whole set at the same time. It will be already some extreme, and quite rare, degree of expression of this dichotomy.
Laziness is a phenomenon inherent in both one and the other representatives of this pair. If you planned something and did not do it because you could not tear yourself off from your beloved / loved one from the sofa, it means only that you are a lazy person, and not that you belong to the group of irrationals.
Irrationality is primarily a way of thinking "we will live - we will see."
How does the dichotomy show the rationality of irrationality in behavior?
The rational is stable in thoughts and feelings. Can for a long time keep a grudge, or vice versa, "be faithful" to long-standing love.
It works to create a state or feeling.
Always in tone, with difficulty relaxes.
Works evenly according to plan.
Thoughts set out clearly, consistently.
Respects the system, observes the "rules of the game."
He himself is a supporter of discipline and punctuality. The same demands from others.
I am more motivated in bringing things to an end.
In any activity is set to improve skills. Therefore, it is less inclined to frequent changes in the profession.
If something fails, it is easier to change the means of achieving the goal than the goal itself.
To understand the problem or solve a problem, the rationale must be presented on the "internal screen".
In external communication, hearing and speech play an important role.
Better perceives information by ear (from the point of view of some socionics).
The irrational is impulsive, changeable in its attachments and feelings.
It works to get out of the state or feeling.
Normal state of relaxation, for action you need effort.
The work is characterized by recessions and rising activity.
When talking, the idea is often "to go aside."
"Anarchist" rules can be changed.
He prefers not to bind himself with obligations, as circumstances can change.
It can start several cases at once, and it is difficult to finish it. Or not bring.
In any business is set to catch new trends, quickly pick them up and quickly cool to them. Because of this can often change the profession.
If something fails, it is easier to change the goal than the means to achieve it.
To understand the problem or solve some problem, the irrational needs to be passed through the "internal dialogue".
At external dialogue the big role I play gestures and touches.
It is better to perceive information visually (from the point of view of some socionics).
Motions and rational speech as well as thoughts have their beginning and their end is a point. The movements are clear with the fixation of the end of the "maneuver".
From which the figure seems to be angular, as if squeezed in several places. And thanks to this, rationals are more likely to have direct posture.
When choosing clothes, this is often reflected in the "affection" of things. Rational will prefer to buy one thing, but for a long time, than every time to buy a new one. Often explaining this by the fact that "it is better to buy one thing, but qualitative," or "this thing is like a good friend to me ...", etc. In fact, it's just difficult for him to adjust to changing circumstances every time. But the purchase is carried out "consciously". The choice is suitable thoroughly (especially if the sensor). As a rule, it is thought out in advance with what the thing will be worn, and whether it is necessary at all.
Movement and speech irrational smooth, gently flowing into one another. Because of what the general EXPRESSIONAL streamlining, smoothness, and relaxation is formed. Posture, as a rule, "let go", free. Buying clothes often happens "in the mood", and then the question is solved with what and how to wear it. Things are more likely to get bored of what and the purchases are made, too, more often, in accordance with "established circumstances."
