When you make decisions are you a thinker or feeler?Â Do you â€œgo with your gutâ€™â€™ more often than not? If so, you might have a better chance of picking the correct result.Â A professor of the University of Pittsburgh discussed how â€œgoing with your gutâ€ is actually drawing upon the wealth of experiences you hold, allowing you to lean towards the likelier outcome.Â These results spanned from the ability to predict election outcomes, football stats, American Idol winners and even the weather.Â Why?Â Well if you take your accumulated knowledge about a subject and you have an instinctual pull to a particular option, you are betting that history will continue to repeat itself.
So if your gut is telling you that the Jets arenâ€™t going to pull a rabbit out of their helmet this season, based on everything you know, youâ€™re probably right. Â That isnâ€™t to say there arenâ€™t outliers.Â Surprises always can occur.Â Thatâ€™s why it is important to take every situation and examine with the facts presented.Â Each client that walks into your office should be taken as the individual they are, but that does not mean that your gut feeling about them isnâ€™t correct. Â Wisdom is what we tend to call the accumulation of this knowledge base.Â So the next time that your spidey-senses are tingling, go with your gut and trust yourself.
