There's probably a ST archetype here. Gut feelings are often "canaries in
the mine", but the organizational culture inhibits talking about them,
which intensifies the feelings. These feelings will often find expression
in body language, sudden anger, etc., which may bring action to suppress
the symptoms, and so it goes.
