    I voted no, but only because I have been SURE of certain things before and been way off.  So either it doesn’t exist or I’m just really bad at it, haha.

    Hmm, I think intuition is interesting. I think there are some people are good observers and have a good memory which makes them catch on to things or “predict” them more accurately. Also, I think people have “intuitive-like” thoughts all the time, but only when they are realized do you pay attention. For example, I have the feeling it’s going to rain without seeing a forecast. I forget about that thought. I later go outside and if it’s not raining, I don’t even remember I had the “I think it’s going to rain” feeling, but if it is raining, I think, “I knew it!

    Does that make sense? I’m skeptical by nature though, so maybe there is something more to it.

    And, as far as women having intuition – I thing generally women are more observant, listen better, and have better memories, so it makes sense to me that women seem more intuitive.

    I believe in intuition, as I commonly experience it myself, but I don’t think it is JUST women or ALL women.

    @Crabbabs:  I’m going to go with this, lol. It’s being observant and your subconscious filing away information for later.

    But sometimes it’s just odd. Like right before my niece was born (who I was certain was a boy, so obviously I suck at this, lol!) I was erm, chatting with myself and tried to guess what they would name it if they had a girl. Name ‘x’ popped into my head. Not a name of anyone I know or had heard. They named her ‘x’. When Darling Husband said it to me on the phone, I said “No Way!” I was sure that I must have mentioned it to him at some point and he was teasing me. Nope.

    But most of the time it’s what crabbabs said, my mind is recognizing a situation or pattern and leads me down the path to the correct conclusion.

    I think it is. One time I was at my SO’s house, and my mom called which wasn’t unusual at all. I picked up the phone and felt panicked and asked “What’s wrong??” Then I was confused and didn’t know why I said that so I apologized and said hello and asked what’s up. She said my cousin had been in a car accident and to go pick up her son from daycare. I had no reason to be worried but I knew before she said a word that something was wrong.

    oh! I knew I had something else – when I was little, I could tell when really bad storms were going to happen. I still clearly remember my sister’s birthday and we were coming in from the pool, and I stopped in the yard and looked at the sky. My stomach just felt all weird and knotty and I just knew a bad storm was coming. The sun was shining and there were only a few puffy clouds out, but sure enough, that night there were several tornado touchdowns in the area.

    It probably happened a 1/2 dozen times and I finally came to the conclusion that the humidity or barometer dropping must have affected me somehow. But I seem to have grown out of it now.

    @Crabbabs:  I agree.  I think it is simply being observent and your mind storing away bits and pieces of info that come back to you later.

    I was about to post something about this very subject but instead I did a search.  I don’t think there is anything psychic or supernatural about it, but I am a hardcore believer in women’s intuition.  I believe it’s an issue of being in tune to your environment and the people around you rather than a psychic type of thing.  Here are just a few examples of how my intuition has served me…

    First impressions:  I like almost everyone I meet.  Sometimes there will be people I meet, and there is something about them that triggers an alarm (for lack of a better word).  I may not have any tangible reason to not trust or like them, but I know I can rely on the feeling I’m experiencing.  I can almost always tell when someone isn’t being completely honest or is hiding something.  People may think I’m crazy, but everytime I have felt this way toward someone, they have always later given me confirmation that I was right about them.

    Situational example 1:  A family member recently got engaged.  I was really happy for them.  A few days later we had a family gathering and his fiance was there.  When I spoke to his new fiance, I immediately knew they would not be getting married.  Everyone else was happy and excited as she was talking about her wedding season and colors and venue, but I KNEW it wasn’t happening.  I told my fiance on the way home that there wouldn’t be a wedding for them.  Yesterday (about a month and half after their engagement), I was told she moved out, saying she wasn’t ready for such a serious commitment and she needed space.

    Situational example 2:  About a year ago, my best friend texted me and said “check your facebook.”  This was not uncommon because we frequently send texts and facebook messages instead of phone calls.  I immediately knew she was pregnant.  I read my facebook message and it said, “You are going to be an aunt.”  They were not trying to conceive, they had not used any sort of birth control for 5 years and they thought it wasn’t possible for them to conceive for whatever reason. She hadn’t mentioned anything about pregnancy or babies to me before that message.

    Situational example 3:  A close family member told me he had hired a new secretary.  He didn’t say much about her, just mentioned it.  I immediately knew he was having an affair.  Two years later, his wife confirmed the affair had been going on pretty much since the beginning.

    Situational example 4:  My fiance went to a bachelor party.  He came home the next day and muttered something about people doing stupid things when they are drunk.  Before he said that, I never would have expected the bachelor to do anything inapropriate at the party, but as soon as he said it I knew the bachelor had been unfaithful to his future wife and I knew who he had been unfaithful with.  My fiance does not like to keep secrets from me and he told me he wanted to tell me something.  I told him I didn’t want to hear it because I already knew and I was sad for the future bride.  He didn’t understand how I knew.  I tried to explain the power of women’s intuition.

    Sitautional example 5:  I called a close family member to see when they would be arriving for a family gathering.  I asked what she was doing.  She said, “just sitting in my room with my friend __________.”  As far as I knew, she had only dated guys prior to that, but when she said that, I immediately knew this girl was more than a friend.  It was confirmed about a month later.

    Again, I know a lot of people are skeptical about things like this, and I don’t claim to have any sort of power or anything like that.  I believe everything I know intuitively stems from being in tune and picking up on the subtlest of things.  Even if I can’t define what exactly it is I’m picking up on.  My intuition has served me so well that I don’t doubt it anymore, I embrace it.

    I am not sure if its womens intuition or just certain people. I get these “feelings” very often. Its freaky! And sometimes even dreams.

    The first time it happened I was a kid, maybe 4-5. I woke up from a horrible nightmare at my mamaws screaming that my mom was in a car wreck. Everyone told me it was a dream but minutes later we found out my mom had been in a car wreck. No joke! She was okay, but as a child it freaked me out.

    Ive also had weird very random ones. Well, some of these are not feelings more like dreams. I dreamt that a friend and her long time boyfriend of 5 years broke up. They were never on again off again. I log onto facebook that morning to see they had broke up.

    Ive had very off or odd feelings. Sometimes to the point where I am sick at my stomach. I did this once right before my husband and I were in a (small) car wreck. But it was just like I knew something bad was going to happen. I have had some rather detailed ones I don’t want to get into but yea, I do believe its real.

    Yes! I believe in intuition. I get this feeling in my gut, or just a thought in my head.

    When I was younger I spoke to a friend on the phone, and before our conversation I knew she had lost her virginity the night before. I asked her, and she was so shocked that I knew!

    Also, when another friend fell pregnant I had been expecting it. They used contraception, were not TTC, and then when she emailed me I knew what it was going to say before I opened it.

    On multiple occassions I’ve had the feeling that someone was going to break up with their SO/ they were cheating/being cheated on, and I was right.

    Twice when Fiance called me I knew something was wrong, even before he said anything. I asked him what was wrong, the first occassion was that his brother was sick, and the second was that his aunt had been rushed to hospital.

    When I was younger I got a call from my mum when I was out with friends, which isn’t out of the norm, and I knew something bad had happened- she then told me that my granny had fallen down our driveway and had broken her ankle in 4 places.

    A few years ago I was at FI’s place and my mum phoned me (this wasn’t uncommon because she usually would to ask when I’d be home, if I’d be having dinner at FI’s or home etc) When I answered the phone I knew that something was wrong with my cat. She hadn’t been ill when I had left. My mum then told me that my cat had sudden kidney failure, and I went to the vets with Future Mother-In-Law to see my cat and to put her down.

    A few weeks ago my families rental home (we’re tenants there) was on the market. When a buyer came to view I just knew that they were going to buy the place, and as an investment. They did later that day.

    And, there’ve been other occassions too! SUPER CREEPY sometimes Undecided

    I believe in woman’s intuition, mainly as I am a very intuitive person. 

    I don’t think it’s something all woman have, but it’s definitely something that more woman have then men.
