It seems like an Area51 badge...
I've gotten it on MSO, SuperUser, ServerFault, Gaming, Web Apps... I think every SE site I'm registered to, except SO and Area51.
Is this intentional?

Yes, this is intentional.
I *believe* a more formal announcement of Precognitive/Talkative/Cross-site badges in general is planned for blog.SO. Stay tuned.
Apparently there was some miscommunication, and this was not intentional. Precognitive badges are being rolled back*, and will be re-awarded in the near-ish future.
*Badge counts will be off for some users for a short period of time, not to exceed 24 hours.
I'm going to use my newly-bestowed powers of precognition and guess that, by awarding the badge to all of a persons accounts across multiple SOFU/SE sites, it is a way of advertising/promoting Area 51 (similar to how the Talkative badge advertises/promotes chat). In other words, these badges make such sites/features more visible as people stumble upon them while exploring SOFU/SE.
