Instinct and intuition.
I am glad you mentioned that! Now I am thinking! I could google it. But not necessary I think.

Let me see. I am about to walk into a place with high grass on a hot summer day. Instinct warns me about snakes.
Ditto with walking into a dark and lonely street in a metropolis at say two in the morning. Equally dumb. Could be what do you call them, nasty men. Forget the name.

I think instinct has to do with survival, whereas intuition goes beyond survival.
