gut feel

gut feel/feeling — very rough estimate [wiktionary]

I was discussing with someone on the collaboration of a project. We were not sure whether our new method would work. He asked me, "What is your gut feel?" Noticing my puzzlement, he explained: "The equivalent word is: intuition." (It seems "gut feeling(s)" is more common that "gut feel" based on the results from google search.)

    “What is your gut feeling?” This is the correct way.

  2. Cilly said,

    I would say that instead of a ‘very rough estimate” it is more a very precise response that you know if you just pay attention to your true feelings.

  3. Any said,

    Gutfeel is more common. Like:

    My gutfeel says that this will happen. Thats my gutfeel.

    What does your gutfeel says about this game?
