Fiance and I almost got ripped off by one of those cookware/vacation scams last weekend. We actually filled out the order form and everything, but I had a nagging feeling about it, did some research, and I’m glad I did. (I had a nagging feeling from the get-go, but fiance thought it was a good idea.) Not to mention when I started looking on how to cancel it, found out they had flat-out lied about the interest rate (they said it was like 1.5%, when I got to looking at the paperwork, it was 21%!) I beleive they are required by a consumer-protection law to let you cancel for 3 days after the order, even though the order form says “no cancelations”. They didn’t give us much hassel canceling (it was within the 3 day time-frame, so I would have started quoting laws to them if they had given us trouble), thankfully.
I called off buying a dog a couple years because of intuition before too. It was coming from a breeder in Florida (buying dogs from out-of-state or even out-of-country is pretty common for people that show in AKC conformation), but something didn’t sit right about it. I had even sent the money when I decided to cancel. I couldn’t even put my finger on exactly what it was, everything looked fine on paper, but I figured if I had such a nagging feeling, that something was amiss.
Do you usually trust your intuition or ignore it?

I trust it! It hasn’t failed me yet!

When I have it really strongly, I am always right- it’s kinda freaky! FI thinks that I’m psychic. 🙂 Sometimes it is exhausting though.

Oh my goodness, my intuition is the thing I trust THE MOST! The problem only comes when I second guess myself, or think I am just crazy. Nice job following yours! Those scams can be very convincing!

I definately do! I have a knack for being able to read people and as a result I stay well away from those that just seem a bit off to me. One girl at my old work came across as really friendly and nice and people started off liking her but I was always a bit suss of her and stayed away. Well after 2 months she turned into a crazy girl who screamed at people for no reason.
Your instincts just tell you the right way to go and its always best to listen to them!

Oh yeah! And I think I’ll be a lot happier with the 2 All-clad pans I’ve picked out (this and this) for a fraction of the price than their $2K set of cookware!

Oh definitely. My spidey sense goes nuts sometimes and usually for good reason. It’s always good to rely on your vibes.

All the time, and it’s usually right.

I’m the anti to y’all. I have social anxiety so I have an elevated fear response and am nauseous almost 85% of the time when out in public. I have none of the makings of a superhero.

I wish I did! I’m finally getting used to trusting my instincts now, but before I never did, but I always wish I had in the end. For example, I kind of had a feeling that I shouldn’t have moved in with my ex-bf and then I tried to break up with him, but was easily talked out of it. About 6 months later, I finally did it, but I probably should have just stuck to my guns 6 months earlier and have been done with it! Now I have to deal with the hassel of moving AGAIN, and it’s just so much more frustrating. Should have trusted my instincts!

Yup, almost all of the time.
