For these questions, I find it really helpful to imagine a glass half-full of water. For this glass, as for any system, you would be able to assign specific values to different properties. If, by filling the glass up all the way, one of these values would change, then that corresponding property is extensive. For example, if I fill up the glass, the temperature of the water would not change, so temperature is an intensive property. But in the same scenario, an extensive property like mass or internal energy would change.
