Do you always listen to your"gut"?

I am a big person on how a situation "feels" I have gone against my gut instinct and most of the time, not a good descion. Do you follow your head or your instinct? I am trying to make a really important choice and was just wondering what you all do?

  • I really try to combine the two. If my head & gut are arguing, i'll usually seek advice from a loved one....a wise loved one. Or ask here on CM.

  • I usually follow my gut. Or with my kids my Mommy intuition.

  • There is nothing more reliable to a woman than her gut and intuition.

  • I have always found that when I go with my gut, I am 100 percent right. Even if it is a decision that I don't like, I have never had regrets when I followed my gut.

  • I've gone against my gut before and I've definately been burned. I have learned the hard way that my gut instinct shouldn't go ignored. With that I do try to apply logic to the situation, so that does require some brain power. However, I've found that what my instinct is saying is right.

  • If it's truly my gut feeling I go with it. If there is some sort of emotional influence I don't listen as well.

  • My Gut feeling has always been correct. Unfortunately alot of times I chose not to listen and regretted it!

  • if it's my gut feeling then i listen to it/ I make sure it's my gut first and not just emotions, I wait on it a couple days then act.
