Scientists have some remarkable new advice for anyone who is struggling to make a difficult decision: Stop thinking about it.
...when the time comes to decide, go with what feels right. ''It is much better to follow your gut," said Ap Dijksterhuis, a professor of psychology at the University of Amsterdam, who led the research.

My gut tells me that liberals are fruitcakes. And the facts even support it.
"Go with your feelings...use the force."
"why do you think you think?"

Ap Dijksterhuis? Why would I take advice about making decisions from someone who obviously hasn't thought enough about changing his own name to something comprehensible.

He can't follow his gut. He can't see that far away....
Obviously this guy / gal / whatever has to be a thinker.

Let's see...what's the critical mass of plutonium? Ah, screw the calculations, my gut tells me it's about 20 kg....

I once had an idiot boss who used that method. He prided himself on being able to make decisions on complex matters. He was consistently wrong, but that didn't seem to matter to him - what was important to him was that he was making important decisions, not the (predictably bad) outcome of those decisions.

"inuitive abilities......there for a reason"
that's pretty good

Never ask 'why'? It evokes a philosophical not logical response.
Sorry, it was an objectivist moment. But I'm feeling much better now.
