    My gut feelings are always dead on, but I rarely remember this when I'm making decisions.
    Stupid thing, actually thinking people are different than my initial assessment of them. Because, painful as it is for me to admit it, they're really not.

    I think I trust it deeply, and follow it far too little. Like some rebellious kid, the idealistic side of me wants to say "NO way!" while my gut rolls its eyes like a parent waiting for the inevitable.

    Same here. I tend to trust my gut more in impersonal matters, since it has rarely misled me there. My gut feelings about people are far less accurate, and I have learned to distrust my first impressions. Once someone has a track record, though, it becomes more reliable again.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...

    I trust my highly logical thought processes and my accurate ability to predict outcomes based on the fine combing of multiple known variables.

    That's an INTJ way of describing "gut"...

    I use my gut to provide myself with energy and passion to move quickly toward whatever I figured out in advance. It kind of drives things home for me. Gives me a level of dedication.

    My gut instinct is usually that it has to happen now! Or This must happen quickly! And must be done exactly the way I pictured it!
