    Things always go awry when I don't trust my first gut instinct, I tend to over think things if I don't and can end up ignoring either the utter awesome or horrible my body/emotional being is trying to tell me about.

    Terrible things happen to good people every day.
    Consequentially, I am not one of the good people.
    I am one of the terrible things.

    I can't give an accurate ratio for how often my gut is correct. But usually when it gets going it's because there probably really is something wrong, I could vocalize it but I won't until either I make a decision about it or wait it out to see if it's true (which I usually do). I guess it's a combination of functions in this order: Ne -> Si -> Fi. Then Te kind of shows up a little after and decides what it wants to do about it. It's the thing that tells me to wait until I get evidence for the gut feeling. Usually teaming up with Ne to see if there are other reasonable possibilities that could be going on.

    Yeah, I know that feel. Often when I ignore my gut feeling it turns out I better should have listened to it.

    ^^ This is very wise. Thank you.
