Dear Poll: Do You Really Listen to Your Instincts?

We talk on this site a lot about 'trusting your gut' and 'listening to your instincts', and I wonder how often we heed our own advice. After all these years, I still second-guess my instincts, though much less than when I was in my twenties!

I'll find myself in some kind of internal dialogue, during which I let my mind (or judgement) explain away or refute what my gut is telling me. This song-and-dance happens over and over. Still, it's all about what we do, and I act much more quickly in favor of my instincts these days, despite the 'interference' from my thoughts.

Tell me, ladies: In most situations, do you trust your gut & act on what it 'tells' you?
