How often do you accurately intuit/sense a situation?
I recently applied to a job I had been thinking about working for a while. I had eaten there a couple times and I just had gotten the sense this one employee was the head person in charge without ever actually being told so or any obvious namebadge or difference in uniform. Sure enough, when I went to inquire about a job, he was the manager.
I’m one of those people I think I don’t trust or realize what I’m sensing in the moment. It can kind of come across mentally as reflections or observations on the situation, which then later turn out to be right.
Unfortunately I don’t trust some of these because some of them are bothersome at times. And I also simply don’t want to believe I’m that accurate at times, because I don’t want to spiral down some path where I think I’m practically psychic or mind-reading, because those are cognitive distortions/delusions at times as well.
I’m just wondering if I should just trust them more. The problem is I also have a observations about people at times that are wrong or presumption, which throws things off. Is there a way to tell the difference
