Types of Intuitives 

Intuitive children with highly tuned sensory perceptions display their gifts in what our cultures might think are unconventional ways.

Intuitive Intelligence is a system of processing information that arrives spontaneously  beyond intellectually known information, or evident thought. Every human has an intuitive processing system. Like any intelligence, different people will have varying degrees of strength.


Intuition is a talent or ability to grasp or understand spontaneous perception, feeling, or information. This talent would be a strength of the intuitive intelligence range.
