I have to admit, this is my favorite description of Intuition. It is probably how best to describe how I feel my intuition works.
… Jung speaks of intuition as being the function of unconscious perception (Ibid, P. 220). Intuition may, in fact, derive from the interrelated functioning of all modes of knowing, analogous to the experience of depth that results from using both eyes simultaneously rather than only one eye, or each eye alternately. Intuition would then essentially be a depth of knowing that emanates from the harmony of all four modes, and as such could appear in the guise of any of them, and to a greater or lesser extent depending upon the degree of alignment.
