Discussion on: Problem Solving: A Hunch

Someone very much wiser than me mentioned that even as a rational person it's important to trust one instincts and gut, specially in those moments when it manifests itself as strong foreboding or uneasiness.

The argument is that we are creatures that also intake experience and sensations through non-verbal channels that our conscious selves do not perceive - but are nevertheless present and meaningful.

Your hunch may well be an extra acute instinct that is working in your aid.

Very true! It's nothing magical, it's based on previous experience or non-verbal channels indeed.
