    Cool Present simple and continuous

    Hello!

    In the following cases, I don't know which to choose: the Present simple or the present continuous. Can you help me?

    -My intuition tells me / is telling me it's a dangerous situation.

    -She is a guide. She knows what she talks / is talking about. ( from a general point of view).

    -When you think/are thinking, do you think in your mother language or in English?

    -Last year she was struggling with English. She is still struggling /still struggles.

    -We plan/are planning to start some business there.

    Thank you
