Intuit: from the Latin verb intueri, from in- ‘upon’ + tueri ‘to look.’
“In-” = upon? Does that mean intuition is a synoptic sense? A superficial grok of a whole?
A question: What is the precise relationship between an intuition and an insight? Are either of these words precise enough for such a comparison?
Jung primed me for this question: he distinguished between an introverted intuition and an extraverted intuition.
