Does Gut Instinct Really Work?

When I was young, deciding for me has always been a problem. Often, I get into an argument with myself. For example, when I want to buy new shoes (which turn out to be expensive), I weigh the pros and cons – “these shoes are expensive but they will last me a few years”; “if I buy these shoes, then I won’t be able to buy a new coat”, etc. When I’ve made my decision and I’ve finally bought the shoes, I realized that I liked another one better. Hence, I find some truth in Gareth Cook’s words about people purchasing a house, that people “do not choose wisely if they spend a lot of time consciously weighing the pros and cons” (Cook A3).
Let's make that grade!
