The role of intuition, gut feeling, instinct

Human intellectual bandwidth, disc space, compute capability is limited.
One cannot compute all the variables about one’s own life at all times and try to computational take each decision, else, one will remain paralysed by inaction, as life is complex and multivariate.
Future trajectories can’t be computed in real-time, instantaneously.

Hence, the role and importance of gut feeling, intuition and instinct exists. These are meant to probe us along the intuited path, because continuous computation isn’t possible not optimal as it may lead to inaction (sometimes referred to as “analysis-paralysis”).

One will do well in life, by optimally trusting gut feelings & instincts.
