Intuition help on a job
A few weeks ago I was perusing a job site not out of desperation, just because I thought it might time to look for a full-time job. I do freelance and other things, but I've been thinking it might be time to return to full-time work. Anyway a job caught my eye. It was the kind of the job that was almost exactly what I was after.
Prior to all of this, I had for many months said to myself quite adamantly that my next job would have to x,y and z and also must be 5 minutes away from my house. The 5 minutes away from my house was a big ask to be honest, because where I am living is in the suburbs and there really isn't any major businesses near where I live, just some local shops. And I had also manifested wanting to work for a large organisation - ha ha!
Anyway as it turns out I see on the off chance a job that fitted most of my criteria and yes amazingly literally 5 mintues up the road. The head office was for some reason situated in a strage spot.
So I applied for the job and first I got a rejection letter, which I couldn't quite understand why as I believe I fitted all the criteria and then not long after they reposted the advertisement, with extra criteria, extra critera I had actually put in my resume. So I was a bit peeved, but let it all go because I didn't want to work for a company that re-advertised but sent me a letter saying they had found suitable applicants already.
But then a week later I get a few calls on my phone saying that they had in fact made a mistake and put my details in the wrong pile.
Before the interview, I put out a manifestation that I would for the first time handle my nerves and believe in myself and if the people I would speak to would be the type of people I would like to associate myself with and if not then this not the right job for me.
So the long and the short of it, I went for the interview and it lasted a good while (nearly two hours) and amazingly for the first time I conducted my nerves in a reasonable manner (which was a feat in itself) and I felt comfortable with the people.
However, now my gut feeling tells me not to go for the job, if I get offered it. I think the most scary thing is rejecting something that is almost what I want and yet I want to say "no". I am wondering if my gut feeling is right, or that is more that I am scared to take a leap into the unknown. I believe this job is a bit too technical for me and that I may not be able to handle it.
How do I know that my intuition is right? I mean I have felt this feeling time and time again when I go for jobs that don't feel right, so I almost 99% sure I should not go for it.
I mean the best outcome and probably the most realistic one is that they will of found someone else more suitable, but a nagging feeling inside me says this in fact might be not the case and that I have to deal with the emotional struggle in believing in my intuition.
I don't regret going for the job at all, because for the first time ever I was able to conquer my fear of interviews. I was able to let-go of my fear of people in high authority and not care as much what people think. I walked out of that interview not feeling ill or unhappy with my conduct. I had conquered a major a fear and for that I was truly grateful.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated.

If it is the job you were dreaming about, why on earth would your intuition say it is not the job for you? That doesn´t seem to make sense...
Here is a good article from Erin about the difference between ego and intuition How To Tell the Difference Between Your Ego, Logic, Spirit Guides and Intuition

Hmm yes I understand where you coming from, but usually I get a good vibe when I am to try something new...even when the skills are over my head. Yes I have taken on situations where the skills are higher than what I am used too, but I feel it is more than that. It wasn't the job I was dreaming of but it wasn't what I wasn't dreaming of either. What makes it enticing is the vicinity really.

Go with your gut feeling...I've been in those situations many times and in retrospect I was right about the person or decisions. If you are here to find an answer as to whether or not to take the job then the answer is no. You will know when the right opportunity comes along...because you will not go to a forum looking for someone to make the decision for you.

It's hard for me to knock back something that seems on the surface perfect and most people if I told them that I have knocked it back would say I am crazy! But I now know it is not right. Actually looking back on some older post of mine, helped me see clearly that it is not what I want.
I think the interview was there to help me grow as a person and conquer one of my fears.
