While it's easy to gaslight ourselves about intuition, our gut instincts are there for a reason.

Oftentimes, the most seemingly random intuition crops up to protect us from invisible danger, and 20/20 hindsight shows us exactly what those feelings saved us from.

In some cases, our gut is steering us from something subtle enough it's hard to quantify, but there are plenty of stories of people saving their own life because their instincts kicked in.

In a popular Reddit thread, people shared times their gut saved them from danger, and it's a good reminder that our intuition is rooted in predictive knowledge.

1. From NothingFirstCreate:

There’s been a few times where I hadn’t listened to my gut but one sticks out where I did. I used to live in a smaller Minnesotan town down near some train tracks and a bike/running path that extends out of town into the woods. One evening I’m sitting outside on my porch drinking a couple of beers with my buddy. Two dudes walk up on us kind of out of nowhere and immediately something seemed off with them. It’s a college town and drunk people come up onto your porch a lot or randomly just say hello on their way to or from the bars downtown.
