Does it give you an odd feeling of satisfaction?
but the older I get and the longer I live the more I'm convinced I am of the power of instinct
my instinct is way more often right than my rational, reasoned self
but sometimes it's just so obvious to you they're a twat and you can't rationally explain why...
is enough rational justification for me.
especially when other people come round to your way of thinking having previously told you off and to give them a chance
There's something very cathartic about admitting that you think someone's a twat and finding out everyone agrees.
Almost instantly upon meeting someone I gauge whether they're a cock or not.
95% of the time I am right.
met a guy I thought was a bit of an arrogant, name-dropping tosser. Turned out he was a massively arrogant, name-dropping tosser.
who was just projecting their social awkwardness the first go around
What I was going to say was that it's great when you tell people you think the person is a throbber even when they don't think they're that bad. Then when they do turn out to be that bad it's great because you were right.
and rather than feeling vindicated,it made me feel almost relieved. Sort of like "i KNEW it."
That said I think gut feelings are dangerous to go with, because they're affected by baggage and cynicism as much as anything else.
