Intrinsic property - any property of any object or matter, such that occurs independently of other conditions.1)
For example, an electron possesses an intrinsic electric charge whose existence is independent of the state of the electron, or its placement inside or outside of an atom. Each electron also exhibits intrinsic spin magnetic moment.
Magnetic properties of a given material can also be intrinsic or extrinsic. For example, an introduction of an air gap to a magnetic circuit changes the effective permeability of the circuit or a specimen under test, due to the demagnetising effect or shape anisotropy. However, the intrinsic properties of the material are not affected the the presence or absence of a gap. Hence, properties of the material can be intrinsic, and properties of the sample can be extrinsic.
