He also says on pg 180, ' so must an INFJ intuit; this caability extends to people, things, and often events, taking the form of visions, episodes of of foreknowlege, premotions, auditory & visual images of things to come. Infjs can have uncanny communications with certain individuals at a distance. "

There are two types of iNtuition in Type: iNtuition in the extraverted (outer) form, and iNuition in the introverted (inner) form.
Introverted iNtuitives (INFJs) are more inclined to have visions when they are disconnected from the outer world, and their visions may seem to have little or nothing to do with "reality." Those who experience iNtuition in its extraverted form tend to experience their perceiving as an "emergent" experience in the moment, usually with other people. Ergo, it is NFPs who tend to display greater ability in psychic arenas than NFJs.

Keirsey did not do INFJs any favors by claiming they (we) have ESP -- gawd do you know how many people want to be so-called rare INFJs with psychic powers now? :-P
