Do you have a good gut? Do you trust what your gut tells you?
Many people believe relying on your gut reaction is an unproven, emotional, response that is indecipherable and indiscernible when it comes to determining faction from fiction.
In Malcolm Gladwell’s brilliant book, Blink, he tries to give form to the snap-judgment of the gut feeling, and while he doesn’t like the term “intuition” — he feels it is too linked to emotion — Gladwell does argue that a gut reaction is a trained,
rational, action based on previous experience and facts that may not be able to be expressed in words beyond the gut of the body.

How do you handle the disconnect between what you gut tells you and what your mind knows?
