“trust your gut”
We’ve been hearing this phrase for quite a while now, right? Probably our whole lives. There’s a good reason behind it.
When people say “trust your gut”, from a psychology perspective, they’re talking about your intuition. Intuition comes from patterns we’ve identified in the past, that are stored in our long-term unconscious mind.
Our minds are like rows of data in an Excel spreadsheet. Components are stored away and saved until we need them. Once we come across a situation where we do need them, our “intuition” will come into play.
Trust your gut.
