Can We Talk Turkey About Paranoia And Intuition

Let us Talk Turkey about paranoia and intuition!  I believe, there is a fine line between the realm of paranoia and intuition. A line so fine I must reason it starts intuitively at the first signs of paranoia.

Nevertheless, intuition seems to be reflective not only on psychological factors but many environmental factors. Yet, the same time it parallels with many paranoia symptomologies.

While the paranoia is enough to drive me seriously sideways and upside down over some imaginary nonissue that is slowly growing into a problem in my mind. I intuitively have to believe that there is some intuition that is led me down this path, that there is however slim a reality to this on real paranoia.  This paradox is pure intuition, and that is where today’s Mental Health Humor cartoon finds Tommy the turkey.  The realization that he wasn’t paranoid and that his intuition was right not to trust that damn farmer.

Yes Tom the turkey was suspicious when in October he was getting triple the portions of breakfast lunch and dinner.  At the time he could only think of the wonderful bounty of food in front of him but in the back of his mind is intuition was kicking in.

Did You Know: An adult wild turkey has anywhere from 5,000 to 6,000 feathers.

What do you think? Is Paranoia or Just Good Intuition?

Over the years, I’ve learned to rely on my paranoia with some degree of reality. No, not that I believe everyone’s out to get me. Well, at least, not all the time.  I don’t believe the government is conspiring against me. It’s a good thing I don’t believe whatsoever in aliens from outer space or the paranormal.  If so, my paranoia would really be off the charts.  No rather, I believe that paranoia is an intuitive reflection of the environment that we are in…coinciding with our own level of self-esteem or self-awareness.

Is It Paranoia or Intuition?
