How To Listen To Your Instincts (Your Brain Will Thank You)

How To Listen To Your Instincts (Your Brain Will Thank You) | Intuition | Scoop.it

Sure, we'd all love to trust our instincts—if only we could hear them. Martha Beck reveals how to quiet what you're thinking long enough to figure out what you actually feel.


"Listen to your intuition," they say. "Trust your gut." But what if you're so paranoid that you fret about a nuclear attack on rural Wyoming, or so optimistic that you watch Bambi over and over, certain that this time his mom will survive? What can you do to ensure that your true feelings aren't being distorted? The problem is that none of the folksy phrases telling us to trust our instincts explain what an "instinctive hunch" looks like. On top of this, we spend our whole lives being taught to override our intuition. We're taught to think things through, really think about it, give it some thought. News flash: Instincts aren't thoughts. They're grounded in feelings. And learning how to see through a thought-based reaction to the instinct beneath it is a powerful way to steer yourself toward a happy, healthy life......

Warum das Erstbeste oft das Beste ist

Warum das Erstbeste oft das Beste ist | Intuition | Scoop.it


Schokolade- oder Vanilleeis? Wenn wir vor einer Entscheidung zwischen zwei gleich guten Möglichkeiten stehen, wählen wir oft unbewusst die erste von beiden. Dieser Hang zur buchstäblich "erstbesten" Option könnte evolutionäre Ursachen haben. Dass er existiert, haben nun US-Forscher in einer Reihe von Experimenten bestätigt.

How to Make Things Less Complicated by Using Our Instincts and Intuition

How to Make Things Less Complicated by Using Our Instincts and Intuition | Intuition | Scoop.it


I don't really like using instructional manuals when I have to put something together, especially the ones that look like mini-encyclopedias. I prefer using my instincts and intuition to figure it out, which is said to be our "knowing pointing the way." We're born with both intuition and instincts. The difference between the two, supposedly, is that intuition is something we gain through experience, and instinct isn't based on having any prior experience; however, they are words often used interchangeably, and both skills can be extremely helpful in our lives. Following directions from a manual can be useful, even necessary at times, especially when something has a lot of steps, but sometimes it seems that the instructions can almost make things more complicated. One time I was putting together a clothing rack and was following the directions, and when it came time to put in the screws, there weren't any. I checked the list of the contents and it said that eight screws were included, but after searching each individual bag of contents a few times, I was absolutely certain there were none, and was prepared to go back to the store and get another clothing rack and start over. I finally found a little piece of paper at the bottom of the box that said the screws were already screwed in to the bar and you can "omit step five in the instructions." Good to know. It made me wonder how many people put together the contents, and if the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing, which it seemed like in that particular instance, you end up with a little piece of paper at the bottom of a box telling you what you need to know, if you' re lucky! I think that's why I've gotten used to listening to my intuition a lot of the time when I'm figuring out how to work something because sometimes I feel that things are made more complicated than they need to be, and since I consider myself capable of figuring out most things, why not give it a try. If I happen to get stuck and need to use a manual, it's there to refer to -- plus, it can just be fun to challenge ourselves to figure it out on our own, like a Rubik's cube.
