5 Gut Instincts You Shouldn’t Ignore
But there are also some things he does that make me uncomfortable. Sometimes he tells really weird jokes that make fun of women. He only has negative things to say about his ex-girlfriends. But then he compliments me all the time. He told me he loved me only a month after we were together!
If you feel something off about someone or something, then please please listen to your intuition. Please learn from my mistakes. So please if you are reading this, listen to your first gut reaction. It will not lie. Do not silence your inner voice.
What is a Gut Instinct?
Your intuition is rarely wrong, so why do you spend so much time doubting it? How many times have you kicked yourself before? You look back and torture yourself for not following your gut feelings when they were knocking hard at your door.
Found on Ask Reddit. I was 18 and had just moved into my own apartment. The complex was managed by the owners son and right from the get-go he seemed off to me. Nothing that I could articulate, but I felt uncomfortable around him. Since he was frequently at the complex for one reason or another I kept my door locked and chained whenever I was home and I would literally run away if I saw him outside to avoid talking to him. Well one day I grab the local paper and on the front page is this guys face.
A few years back, two scientists at the University of Iowa conducted an experiment in which research subjects played a game of chance with four separate card decks and stacks of play money. Each card indicated whether the player had won or lost money , and the goal for the player was to draw as many cash-delivering cards as possible. Two of them had been stacked so they yielded high rewards but punishing losses, while the other two offered smaller rewards and virtually no losses. It took most players about 50 cards before they started to favor the safer decks, and about 80 cards before they could explain why they did so. You hesitate at a green light and miss getting hit by a speeding truck. You decide on a whim to break your no-blind-dates policy and wind up meeting your life partner. You have a hunch that you should invest in a little online startup and it becomes Google.
Intuition is a funny thing. Most of us don't know what it is or what to make of it. It can be mistaken for fear, doubt or, in some cases, psychic experiences. I had a gut feeling that it would turn out this way. The reason it's so difficult to listen to is because we are such complicated human beings.
