There are times when a mysterious gut instinct kicks in, and you follow it - all reason be damned, only to later fully realize the danger your brain helped you escape. In these instances, it can be incredible to realize just how much our intuition acts as a protective force.

However, there are plenty of times we feel a gut urge and press on despite our body's warning signals. Sometimes escaping is far harder than pressing through the anxiety, and other times we simply don't trust our instincts. Of course, if you stick around long enough you'll find out why that gut feeling cropped up in the first place, and it's usually not great.

In a popular Reddit thread, people who had a bad gut feeling about a situation but stayed anyway shared what happened.

1. From SpendLessLiveMore:

In 5th grade my math teacher made me and another girl stay after school. He said we did too well on the test. We must have cheated. I always got a weird feeling around him, but when it was just him and us, he was actually smelling our hair. When I finished my test, he told me to leave.
