Trusting Your Intuition:

Several years ago I wrote an article called “Etheric Sense”

http://www.personalprotectionsystems.ca ... _sense.pdf

and in that article, last paragraph, I stated, “ I do believe that modern science will one day quantify and Qualify the Etheric sense, thus moving this self protection attribute from the realm of mysticism and esoteric philosophy, to mainstream study.”

Well researchers from Cornell University have recently done just that:

I have stated for years that our intuition is a million years of evolution that the good Lord (or Creator) has provided us to stay safe, and science is now providing “empirical” research to support this belief.

Thanks for posting this Darren...hope all is well with you and family.

Should we trust our intuition about people?

"If you're walking down the street and see someone who looks sinister, and you don't have to engage with him, are you going to give him the benefit of the doubt? Ideally, yes. But our study participants were more likely to err on the side of thinking someone was a criminal than not. Perhaps our reptilian brain is a little less ready to take such a risk," he said.


I wonder if there is a way for us to improve on that so we can recognize bad 'intent' a lot sooner.

Unfortunately, some predators are really good actors, and won't set off alarms like that.
