    Optimism, hope, confidence and positivity on the positive side. 

    Delusional, magical thinking, denial and conceit on the negative side.

    A Gut Instinct....

    Most of us have experienced the sense of knowing things before we know them, even if we can’t explain how. 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.

    You can tap into those insights, especially if you learn to identify which signals to focus on whether they’re sweaty palms, a weird feeling in your stomach, or a sudden and inexplicable certainty that something is up. 

    The intuitive right brain is almost always “reading” your surroundings, even when your conscious left brain is otherwise engaged. The body can register this information while the conscious mind remains blissfully unaware of what’s going on. 

    You can “feel” approaching events specifically because of your dopamine neurons. “The jitters of dopamine help keep track of reality, alerting us to those subtle patterns that we can’t consciously detect.

    This means if something in the environment is even slightly irregular — the speed of an approaching truck, the slightly unusual behavior of someone you know — your brain squirts dopamine and you get that “weird” feeling. Whether you pay attention or not can make all the difference. 

    The benefits of listening to your instincts go far beyond making good on life-or-death decisions. Living more intuitively demands that you’re in the moment. 

    Gut instincts are far from infallible. The right brain’s skill with pattern identification can trigger suspicions of unfamiliar, dangerous or not, or cause you to be especially reactive to people who simply remind you of someone else.

    So how do you choose which gut feelings to trust? It’s a matter of “combining the linear mind and intuition,” and striking the right balance between gut instinct and rational thinking. Once you’ve noticed an intuitive hit, you can engage your rational mind to weigh your choices and decide how best to act on them.

    To that end, here are five gut feelings that experts recommend you pay attention to — and some reasons why you’ll be glad you did.

    Gut Feeling: “Something feels wrong in my body.” 

    Listening to your body’s subtle signals is a critical part of exercising your intuitive sense. 

    Intuition allows you to get the first warning signs when anything is off in your body so that you can address it. If you have a gut feeling about your body — that something is toxic, weak or off — listen to it. 

    Your body is a powerful intuitive communicator. Go and get it worked up, too many people ignore their sense that something isn’t right with their bodies, and subsequently find that small problems have become big ones.

    Physical symptoms can also have symbolic value. If you’re around somebody and your energy goes down, that’s an intuition not to ignore. Sudden sleepiness can mean that you’re in the presence of an energy-draining person or circumstance; it can be your body’s way of communicating that these conditions are taking more energy than they give. 

    If you stay in a situation that makes you feel instantly depleted, it can easily lead to a situation where you become depressed, anxious and — not surprisingly — stuck. Pay close attention to any sudden physical sensations you experience during the course of an interaction with another person. 

    Gut Feeling: “I’m in danger.”

    A women was leaving her prayer-group meeting when a man approached her, asking for help. He told her that he was on his way to meet friends, and his car had broken down. 

    During their brief conversation, she got a visceral feeling that something was wrong, accompanied by a sharp pain in her stomach. She sent the man inside to talk to the pastor of the church and called the police to have them trace his plates. It turned out he was the prime suspect in a gruesome crime and was fleeing the scene.

    Her brain had likely detected subtle irregularities in the man’s behavior. Mere ‘thin-slices’ of someone’s behavior can reveal much. 

    A writer who relates the women’s story in his book Intuition: Its Powers and Perils. His understanding of this capacity is more socio-historical than neuroscientific; he believes that the feeling you get about a person in the first 10 seconds expresses an “ancient biological wisdom.” 

    Early humans who could speedily detect whether a stranger was friend or foe were more likely to survive, and they would create descendants who were able to read emotional signals in another person’s face almost instantly.

    Of course, the human capacity to “thin-slice” can go badly awry, as it did in the 1999 fatal shooting. Police fired when they thought the young man was reaching for a weapon, but he was actually unarmed and digging in his pocket for his identification.

    Because social conditioning helps to create unconscious beliefs, and these beliefs can produce first impressions and snap decisions that are utterly flawed. 

    It’s important to check your gut feelings against your rational mind whenever possible. And there are simple ways you can attend to what feels like a warning signal in the short term. If you don’t trust somebody, even if it turns out to be inaccurate, it’s something to pay attention to. If you’re walking down the street at night and you get the feeling ‘stay away from that person,’ just cross the street.

    Gut Feeling: “I want to help.”

    While you might think of our gut instincts as something we’ve maintained mostly to avoid danger, the human species has evolved an equally powerful capacity to sense when our fellow beings need support. 

    Sympathy is one of humanity’s most basic instincts, which is why evolution lavished so much attention on the parts of the brain that help us think about what other people are feeling.

    Since evolution has made you a quick read of other faces and their emotional signals, you don’t always need to wait for a verbalized cue before you reach out. The sympathy instinct nudges you to change the subject when wedding talk makes a newly divorced colleague cringe, or to start up a conversation with a nervous seat-mate during an airplane landing — subtle gestures that can make a big difference in someone’s day. 

    The capacity to empathetically identify with other faces can even be what compels you to donate money after a natural disaster. Studies of humanitarian relief efforts show that people are markedly more compelled to give after seeing a photo of an individual in need than after reading statistics about damage.

    Most gut instincts are accompanied by some kind of physical sensation. Some of the feelings you might experience during an intuitive “hit” or instinctive response: 

    Positive and affirming instincts are often accompanied by:

    1) A sense of warmth

    2) Ability to breathe more easily.

    3) Sharp clarity of hearing or vision

    4) A wave of goose bumps, tingles or “fluttery” sensations

    5) Relaxation in the gut and shoulders

    Negative or warning instincts are often accompanied by:

    1) Icy cold hands and feet; an overall chill

    2) Twinging or clenching pain in gut or chest

    3) Nausea or acid stomach

    4) A sense of being on “high alert”

    5) Fatigue or loss of energy

    6) Onset of headache
