Three-quarters of Britons rely on human instincts to make big life decisions

Three-quarters of Britons are willing to rely on gut instincts when making big life decisions – like buying a house or changing jobs, a new study has found.

The researchers found that a large percentage of adults believe the decision-making method has proven successful more often than not.

Buying gifts for loved ones (25%), where to go on vacation (25%), and visiting the doctor (22%) are the most common situations in which adults use their gut.

Meanwhile, a significant percentage depends on hunches when considering whether to quit their jobs and decide if they should accept the marriage proposal.

The new study was used in conjunction with several trials conducted by gut health product supplier Biotiful.

According to research, more than a quarter of 2,000 adults polled “don’t know” about the benefits of gut health despite “relying on it” to make decisions.

Biotiful founder Natasha Bowes said: “The adage ‘gut instinct’ is familiar to all of us, and there is growing evidence that the gut is actually our ‘second brain’. .

“If we’re all regularly heeding our advice, we need to make sure they’re as healthy as possible.”

The study also found that 71% believe they tend to make better decisions when they don’t think about them too much.

Three in ten even say they become more and more dependent on their instincts as they get older – becoming more knowledgeable with age and experience.

But 46% admitted to prioritizing their gut feelings over “rational decisions” when 31% revealed they turned to it in a life-or-death scenario.

Yet despite its vital function, 78% don’t know the benefits of ‘good’ bacteria to their gut, according to one poll figure.

Biotiful adds that the properties of “good” bacteria – which support immune function and help control inflammation – have been overlooked. Three-quarters of Britons rely on human instincts to make big life decisions
