Is it rational to trust your gut feelings?

Yes, the subconscious mind often outperforms analytical thinking. It can access more information more quickly. I think of it as speed analysis using real data and experience, not magical at all. Obviously, it's not infallible, but neither is anything else.

I'm all for a whole brain approach to life. Rationality and intuition together.

Good article and insights. The holistic thinking approach is a good one IMO.  To trust in intuition alone without rational consideration can often be a mistake as would trusting in rational considerations alone when your gut feelings (intuition) suggest otherwise. Men often scoff at a woman's intuition but it often turns out to be correct.
