Why are some individuals highly perceptive, while other perfectly intelligent people are not? Perceptive or "discerning" people are "insightful, intelligent, and able to see what others cannot." Not more than a few people congratulate themselves on being very perceptive, yet they are anything but. Is this because they lack the will to endure the pain of self-examination or are some people just not gifted in this area for some reason?

I trust you are not referring to New Age philosophies. No reputable psychiatrist endorses their psychobabble. Furthermore, the New Age Trolls here do not self-examine. They practice scape-goating.
