There was a point of time in my life I studied Pseudo science. It is important to listen to one's gut feelings.
There is a categorization that the brain is split into 3 categories: The Conscious, The Subconscious, The Superconscious.
Your gut feeling is derived the from the Superconscious. In general, the Subconscious and Superconscious are like idle processes of a computer. It runs in the background doing it's job processing without you noticing it. Even without you knowing or understanding, you have this feeling of "i just know it".
If something doesn't feel right, you get a gut feeling. It is nature's early warning system that it is beyond your abilities or in conflict with your interests.
The greatest trading advice I ever got was "If you can't sleep at night, you're risking too much." This is an example of you don't realise it, but your gut knows it is in conflict with your interests.
I hope this helps. Good luck out there
