The Attention Network

The Attention Network is researched in neuroscience as the saliency network. It is involved in pressing and immediate attention, for example the most important thing you need to consider in your environment. The loudest noise, the strongest smell, the most striking color. (red, by the way!)

We believe the attention network and the habitual network is related to sensing. We also think it’s related to structural and natural intelligence. The attention network makes us focus on the most obvious forms of sensory input. Because sensing is opposed to intuition, we can assume intuitives tend to focus on the more hidden, uncertain, complex forms of stimulation.

A sensing type will according to this research be more concrete, tangible, visceral, and attentive. They will be more focused on the real and on the important.
