Lennie's intuition leads him to warn George that the bunkhouse and the ranch aren't a good place for them to be. He instinctively knows there's something wrong and tells George, "I don't like this place, George. This ain't no good place. I wanna get out of here."

Another way Lennie acts instinctively is to cuddle and pet the soft things he loves. They give him comfort and help to ward off fear. Unfortunately, he doesn't know his own strength and is overly affectionate to the point of death.
