See the problem with a third-person perspective
  • When we go with our gut we often choose our go-to behaviour as the solution to the problems that we are analyzing 
  • For example, if we are extremely optimistic then we overestimate our skills

Emotions influence decision-making

Listening to your gut or "just doing what feels right" may not be the best way to make a decision.

Emotions and intuition are not fallible tools that always need to be ignored or even corrected by rational faculties,.

Intuition is the result of a lot of processing that happens in the brain but has not yet reached your conscious awareness.
