Do you trust your instincts?

Rory the ever curious blogger is asking;

How well do you trust your own instincts for sensing if something or someone is wrong for you and/or your life?

As far as human nature is concerned, I do trust my instincts on judging them. I can tell if a person is going to be a good match nature-wise for me or not.

Do you or can you make the right decisions based upon your gut reactions quickly or do you simply tread more carefully and observe everything before making decisions on your findings, opinions, and beliefs?

If we talk about actions, like deciding to do something or buy something small, I am very impulsive. That usually means that I make snap decisions and they are often wrong. I used to buy stuff which I didn’t need just because I liked it. Or try something new without giving it too much thought. But these weren’t very important matters. If it’s an important decision, I do think about it and get information to help me make the right decisions. I rely on information more than my instincts.

If you were to sense a change in a friendship but were not sure of the direction in which this was taking, but your instinct told you something was seriously off – how would you choose to react?

Well if it is a good, or old friend, I would ask the reason for their charge in attitude. I believe in treasuring friendships and also in talking things out. I wouldn’t want to make a decision without trying to clear the air first.

Do you think your instincts are always right and if not, what do you think can alter them to become unreliable?

I trust my instincts as far as judging people is concerned. I do tend to form an opinion about people when I meet them. But that’s as far as I’ll trust my instincts. I am often wrong about other things and would rather trust my brain to make a better, informed choice.

  1. Before I get into answering the questions quickly trusting my instincts has not always been easy. I doubted my ability for a lot of years,

    1. I know am able to trust my gut instinct a lot better. I see my gut instinct as a message from God.
    2. In the trusting of my gut I tend to take it slowly and observe more.
    3. If it is a treasured friend I would talk it out. If it was a social media friend I would just wait and see what happens.
    4. I know I am not always correct which can make me hesitant.

    1. I do think it takes time for us to trust our instincts. Treading carefully and pausing to reflect is a good thing. It makes making bad decisions difficult.
