Thanks +Line Bell for sharing. I think the bottom paragraph from article offers a reason why feelings help in predicting things.

When we rely on our feelings, what feels 'right' or 'wrong' summarizes all the knowledge and information that we have acquired consciously and unconsciously about the world around us. It is this cumulative knowledge, which our feelings summarize for us, that allows us make better predictions. In a sense, our feelings give us access to a privileged window of knowledge and information -- a window that a more analytical form of reasoning blocks us from."

Most of the time I trust my feelings. Those times I didn't, in hindsight I always should have. ¯(°_o)/¯
I really do feel that I "get it right" more than wrong. Unfortunately I can't predict the Lottery numbers. yet....
People with higher trust in their feelings were more likely to correctly predict a variety of future events. The researchers call this phenomenon the emotional oracle effect.

My feelings are so unreliable. If I trusted my feelings, I would own a Ferrari and be living out of a cardboard box. A cardboard box filled with expensive shiny things that make me go, "Ooooooh. Aaaaaaah."

My feelings are like a child in a toy store...a candy a front of chocolate cake...watching animated movies...building stuff and then leveling it all.

My feelings constantly say, "You so need this right now, Michael! Buy it! Even better, get someone to buy it for you!"

And then my twin brother, Guilt comes in to the picture to remind me that I am silly. Guilt tells me that people who own Ferraris also own homes and eat chocolate cake.

Fine. Does anyone out there have a house I can stay in? I'll let you drive my car. Once. While I am in it with you.

Just around the block.
Emotional Oracle Effect or just what you're truly made of- I have to agree. If you choose the "right" things more often than the "wrong" you're bound to master the art. Practice makes perfect after all. Now the tailing question, is "right" perpetually synonymous with "socially acceptable" and vice versa? Great read, +CJ Liu and Line Bell, thanks for sharing.
