Can you tell me the difference between perception and intuitition?

Question:Some tell me I am perceptive and others intuititive. Give me some scenarios.

I think...
Perceptive is when you notice things that are actually visible but hard to see,
Intuitive is when you figure out something is there even when it can't be seen
Does that help?
.... will try to think of an example ...
How about when you witness the scene at a house fire .
- you would be perceptive to notice that the firefighters suddenly seem to be even more serious than they were when they first arrived
- you would be intuitive to suspect that this means that there is someone trapped in the house
I believe that intuition is more of a pre-thought. It's your gut feeling, which you get BEFORE t experience.

Perception is formed from your experiences and or feelings/opinions. Example: If you had a bad experience with a certain breed of dog, and perhaps had mor than one bad experience, it would be your perception or opinion that the certian breed was bad.

Hope this helps. :)
Intuition is simply recognizing a pattern, whether through experience or instinct; perception is the way you hear and see things, like when two people watch a political speech and get two different things out of it.
Perception is the process of acquiring, interpreting, selecting, and organizing sensory information.

Intuition has many related meanings, usually connected to the meaning "ability to sense or know immediately without reasoning",
If you don't know the difference between them and if you don't look for those words in a dictionary, then you're neither perceptive, nor intuitive.
Perceptive is the abililty to look into things and situations with understanding and insight...

Intuition is that inner gut feeling...or sixth sense they call it that something is wrong or something is about to happen...
Perception is about how one sees the world. It uses sensory information and experience to make an interpretation.
Intuition is about relying on the unseen and trusting what one feels. It's a kind of gut feeling, not necessarily relating to the senses or previous experience.

I could see that my friend was feeling something despite the fact that noone else seemed to notice. I am being perceptive.

I move to the next lane because I feel that an accident is about to occur. It happens within moments of me moving. I was being intuitive.
Frankly, perception, at least in the sense you're using the word, is the ability to perceive; that is, the ability to sense emotions and thoughts in people with limited information from them and the ability to decipher physical signals from their actions. Intuition is similar but is more concerned with instinct. While you may ponder a person's mannerisms and signals and be perceptive, intuition is a less concrete trait which presumably allows you to instinctively "know" what's going on without having to perceive anything.
Perception involves personal study and final judgement. As in how you perceive or accept and judge things . Intuition is like a percieved notion that comes naturally for you without having to take the time to study or judge.
Perception can be our way of percieving the distal stimuli, or the environment around us. There are wavelengths that our retina will capture and the information will travel through bipolar cells that will eventually reach our reticular formation and then our thalamus. Then the signal which travels through the process of transduction will reach any part of our brain, such as the temporal lobe, or other parts of the brain that will allow us to react to the distal stimuli. There are parts of our brain that allows us to see colors, objects, and moving objects. This is similar to hearing because we percieve sounds through transduction as well. Sounds will reach the cochlea and the tone of the sound will react to a certain portion, which is then sent to our temporal lobe.
Intuition is more of a cognition that we have. Basically having an emotional reaction towards a situation. Basically if there is a conversation that goes on and you can see that one person maybe uncomfortable, your intuition may tell you this. You may know by emotional reactions, or even a hunch that may tell you something. Both deal with the brain, but they deal with the brain differently. And yes you need perception in order to gain intuition in someways.
