Intuition - how much do you trust yours?

Intuition - how often do you use / rely / trust it?

exibit a: a friend of mine swears up and down that he is not lying, but my intuition says opposite...? there is no logical reason for me to think this, but i am fairly sure.

what do you do in these situations?

I've learned my intuition really sucks..

So, I go by this:
1) If I think they are lying, they aren't
2) If I think they are telling the truth, I know they are lying MF's!!!...:mad:

if you can't trust your friends.. then who can you trust.

yeah that's what i mean... not sure if i want to be friends with this person if its true because it seems farily constant - my bs-o-meter is going off frequently but i don't see what the point would be... ?

I have a hard time deciding whether my "intuition" is just a lack of identifying physical stimulus that I haven't actively paid attention to, yet my brain is nevertheless processing. I don't think I leverage my intuition very often.

Sooo, I need to read this when I have more than 10 brain cells being active.

Had this feeling for awhile.. Always knew the friend was lying and kept catching the person in the lie, but they would always manage to weasel out or come up with an 'explanation'... Go with your gut.

in this case, he is denying his interest in our gay neighbor, as well as having had 'experimental' relationships before, which he had already told me about previously

the thing that gets me is that he knows it would make no difference to me either way...? and i am incredinly good at keeping his secrets so...

also, this is not what would be the friendship breaker, what bothers me is that there are a whole bunch of little insignificant statements that have accumulated into one of those times where i no longer know what is truth or not with this person (?)

Ahh.. The gay issue? Whether you think you should know or not..or that he should tell you or be honest with you, isn't really your decision. Sorry, but he'll tell you when he's ready. Just had a friend come out to me last week. He's in his mid-thirties. We've all known he was gay but he has always denied it..vehemently.. It had to be his choice.

As to the rest, I can't give you any thoughts..

By "leverage" I mean "act on". I'm just saying that when I feel "intuitive" about someone, I don't generally act on it directly...I'm almost always trying to reason my way through problems.
