Do you trust your instincts?

Your instincts are the impulses of life moving in and through you. Do you believe your inner feelings when you get uncomfortable about a person or situation? I do trust my inner feelings and I often follow my intuition. How about you?

Don't too believe to your instinct. Sometimes instinct can help you, but sometimes will destroy you. Ever you have a negative thinking? to your wife, husband, or your neighbor. Mybe Jealous?... I think we must stop for that wrong speculation becuse instinct need right proof. I hope we can life more healthly without bad instincts.

I totally understand what you mean here dyuwono as often I have mistaken instinct for jealousy and even though my gut tells me something, I have been proved wrong.

Yes I do and often I find my instinctive feeling is the right one. I think everyone has this capability and we should trust our own impulses. The more time spent thinking about a person or a situation, the more difficult it can be to reach a decision, so going with your impulse can save time and prevent futher worrying.

Yes I strongly believe in my instincts especially when it comes to a person. If I get uncomfortable about someone, I wouldn't befriend with him or her. Most of the time, I turn out to be right on that person. I think my instincts help a lot in making my choices and survival!

Yes I do. I prove it many times in my life, specially to the people that are very near to me. We have to practice and trust our instincts it will help us in many ways. Like for example if don't like the company of our children it calls mother's instinct.

I trust my instincts because they are rarely wrong. But, sometimes I choose to ignore them and end up kicking myself in my own but for not listening to my inner voice. But, the stuff where I am ignoring my instincts are usually pretty minor. Like, don't put that there because one of the cats is going to see it, knock it down and then you will be mad. Or, don't go this way because there is some kind of reason traffic is backed up. Nothing major like, that guy is going to try to attack you. I have had weird feeling about a person and, I just avoid them. But, I have never had a really bad instinctual feeling about something that I have ignored. I always pay attention to those.

Absolutely. If I get a bad feeling about a person or a situation, I remove myself from it. I think in day to day life we don't use this skill as much, but like any animal we are designed to know when we are in danger.
