Interesting, I believe it is possible that the "inner voice" you speak of is actually what many refer to as our
The ability to distinguish between right and wrong, often most of us are able to know what is right and wrong in situations of moral conflict,
sometimes we have to choose a path based on this 'ability'.
When making choices where neither right or wrong necessarily apply our conscience is not much help, the reason for that could possibly be that we have
no 'conditioned' thought processes to draw from in order to get a clear answer from our 'inner voice'
Your inner voice could simply be the conditioned thought process you have developed through life in an inhibited society.
Perhaps there is something you really want to buy, but there is an inner voice that tells you all the reasons you should not... etc.
Some people who suffer from various mental illnesses could actually develop an inner voice that misleads them. The psychopath usually blames the
'voices' in their head.
Like a computer in a way, your inner voice is based on programming received throughout your life, if you have a stable virus free system and proper
programming, you usually can rely on your inner voice in a multitude of situations.
