Intuition & Relationships
We’ve all had those gut feelings about something at one time or another, or a strong hunch about something. But how does our intuition affect our relationships? Here are some ways in which we see intuition at work, or influencing our relationships:
· Love at first sight. People often say that they just knew their partner was the one, from the moment they first met. This is our intuition speaking. For whatever reason we can often read something about a person right off the bat. There may be an instant connection or bond that sparks our intuition, letting us know that a certain person is something special.
· Bad feeling about a friend’s partner. We’ve all met someone who just gives us a bad feeling, and often we have this sense about someone our friend is dating. Our friend is often too close to the relationship to see it, but from an outside perspective we can see something different. It might not be something we can put our finger on, but our intuition is at work, giving us a bad feeling about someone being wrong for our friend.
· Weird feeling on a first date. For reasons that we can’t always explain, we ca often tell on a first date that someone isn’t going to work out. Sometimes we get a bad or weird vibe from someone and can just tell that they aren’t going to be compatible with us, even though we barely know them.
· Sense of something when first meeting someone. Sometimes when we meet someone for the first time we have a strange hunch – either that we know we’ll encounter them again in a significant way, or that we’ve met them before. It might just be that they have familiar characteristics or remind us of someone we know, but our intuition signals us that there is something special or unusual about certain people.
· Premonition of betrayal. Sometimes we have a strange feeling where we don’t trust someone, for no specific reason. There may not be any just cause for not trusting them but certain people give us a hunch that they can’t be trusted or they might betray us. Our intuition warns us not to trust these people and hopefully we are able to listen and avoid getting hurt.
Ah fuck off and eat a freshly buried man’s maggot-filled dick.
This is suppose to be a psych blog? “I just can’t put my finger on” why this post made me so irrationally angry … but wait, what’s this? I CAN.
Maybe they should copy and paste the ACTUAL reason(s) as to WHY we have these sorts of intuitions. We DO know, and we CAN put our fingers on it.
All of these can relate to #1.
There is no such thing as love at first sight. There is no such thing of /knowing/ they are “the one”. You may /feel/ that way, but how many times do people break up with “the one”—sobbing over ice cream while screaming, “BUT I THOUGHT THEY WERE MADE FOR ME!!!”
The scientific reason why we have relationship intuitions, especially love-at-first-sight, goes back to our primal, primitive, genetic instincts of our ancestors.
When we were first starting out as a species, we had/HAVE the same basic instincts as other animals.
It’s called body chemistry and hormones. In early tribes, the male and female thrived to find a mate that they felt could best match them and offer them what they want (not unlike today’s relationships).
The goal was to mate, so there were certain traits and aspects said gender would be on the look out for, to which the thought would keep a strong bloodline. Body chemistry and hormones connect, you find someone you’re either consciously or subconsciously looking for to feed your basic human instincts, and BAM “love at first sight”, but it really comes down to nothing more on what your brain tells you would be good for you thanks to early basic human instincts.
This is why we may think we’ve found someone, fall in love at first sight, but it’s just your body/brain saying that the person would make a good mate to carry on and MATCH your genes in order to keep your bloodline strong.
So you “fall in love”, but then later down the road~ whoops~ look at that. Today we have people with personalities, improved speech, and all that other grand stuff—so it’s that shit which gets in the way of you actually being happy and compatible with said person. Also with today’s world of over-population, the goal and desire to mate and extend the bloodline may not be the prominent thing in a relationship anymore (I say *may*, because a lot of people are fucking stupid and still think the point of life is to pop babies out).
It’s a lot less romantic this way, hm?
The other shit on the list can also somewhat relate to this, as it comes down to mannerisms. Our brains always want to connect everything to everything in order to make sense of what is going on and our surroundings. People who we get a good or bad intuition with is because “there’s something about them” that is giving you the “intuition.”
Yeah, you’re /subconsciously/ making mental connections to people AND/OR objects, thoughts, whatever, in your past or present. Something of them reminds you of something else, and depending on how you feel about that whatever, will determine how you feel about that person.
If it’s not that, it’s also human emotion. Someone can have a “bad feeling” about a friend’s friends/SO/whatever, but it could just be because they feel that the said person “stole” their time away from the friend.
So shut the fuck up about there being no explanation for this shit, especially when it’s a psych blog.
Though these things just bring up random shit on Google and copy and paste it without really reading it, so whatever.
Like now, for example, it may appear I’m being pompous and stroking my own cock with writing up a huge reply that no one will really read (lest they want to tell me that I’m just trying to sound smart and get attention or something), but it’s really because I’m currently feeling negative emotions about other things … and this? It’s just the first thing that appeared on my dash that I can use to put negative energy into.
I know I’ve complained about “this area” before, but holy hell, I think this takes the fucking expired-molding cake. When I speak of “this area” I talk about general north-west NJ and and eastern PA.
It’s full of the dumbest people I’ve ever seen in my pathetic life. It’s not like I’m just saying that because I live here, but because I’ve seriously been to a good amount of places for someone my age.
I’ve lived in two different cities for two years each even.
I want to buy a packer.
oh please tumblr community, tell me you know what that is.
Oh God, reading these Old Economy Steven memes …
On Friday my aunt came to visit. She said she wanted to see me, and take my mom and I out to dinner. Of course this was all nothing but a ploy to “educate” me on life /again/ since I’m working on moving to getasfarawayfromhereaspossible.
I was talking about this one place I really wanted to move to; talking about the apartment an the area.
My mom asked where I found the place, and I told her craigslist. Both my aunt and mother proceed to freak the fuck out, waving their finger at me as they say all sorts of things about how everyone needs to stay away from craigslist, there’s nothing but scams and murderers on that site, and to never trust ads in there for places to live.
Then my aunt drops this line, “Now if you found the place in a newspaper ad, that would be okay.”
Where my mom proceeds to nod and agree.
I just …
face palmed so fucking hard, my hand went through my head.
if you plan on going out that day
i actually feed on intelligence
i love it when people know a lot about a lot of things
about music, films, religion, beliefs, history
i love listening to peoples opinions
i love big words
i want to suck in all these smart things like a sponge
Me too. I also love it when people capitalize “I” when referring to themselves.
Did you know? You can experience fun and euphoria through other methods other than drinking, partying, sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll? I bet you’re too obtuse to figure out what else though.
Bring the anon hate. I don’t care.
This demonstrates the importance of proper punctuation better than anything.
Good husbands won’t need any substance in order to do those things.
Weed makes you really relaxed when you are high, which makes your violent tendencies to increase when your sober. ;)
Yeah, but this picture is still shit. It’s playing into the stereotype that a marriage is horrible for a man, his wife can’t cook, he doesn’t want to spend time with his kids, his wife is no longer sexually appealing, and he wants to beat his wife.
In order to not be like that, he needs some sort of substance to be a good person, in this case pot.
A real good man would be happy with himself AND happy with his family, where he will be able to act like a decent human being without being high all the time.
Yeah, I know this is suppose to be just a funny picture to bitch about how alcohol is more dangerous than pot, and pot is illegal, but it’s still stupid as shit, imo.
There would be better ways to get that point across without it being offensive to both men and women.
Just thirteen days ago I was eight months pregnant.
Everyone loved rubbing my belly.
I even wore my “Baby On Board” shirt over my gigantic stomach.
Yeah uh…you should know the sort of danger you could potentially be putting yourself in if you go to the OWS lines.
I’m sorry, but I just can’t feel sympathy for this woman.
It just feels like it goes back around to people assuming they are entitled to special treatment because they are pregnant/have a baby, and that they should be exempt from the rules.
That’s.not.how.it.works…as much as they would like it to, and as much as some people enable their catering thinking.
If you are 8 months pregnant, and you willing throw yourself into something where you KNOW brutalities are being committed, then you are a dumb one.
I have no heart.
Who this nigga? Seriously aaaahahahahahaha
If someone comes in with TATTOO SHAMING im punching them in the face.
DAMN. At least it’ll be under a shirt but still…
imagine him like 80 years old and in a home and his caretaker comes in to give him a spongebath and she sees this
Oh wow, the ignorance is strong in the air today. How dare people get a tattoo of something they like!? Oh my god! I can’t believe someone would actually do that! I don’t like what they got a tattoo of, so I’m going to make fun of it and them! YAY! I am such a great person!
If I had a tattoo of something with a cock, and if I’m 80 years old and my caretaker sees it? You can be sure as hell I’m going to laugh at their reaction.
Being prepared to be removed from friends’ lists in 3…2…1…
