    instinct for/in and right/proper thing?

    And his (1) _____________ were always in the visual arts - that was his main area of interest and obviously the (2) _____________ thing for him.
    1. A. feelings B. insights C. senses D. instincts
    2. A. precise B. right C. straight D. proper

    What would you choose to fill in those blanks?
    I would choose D for 1 and B for 2.
    But I wonder whether it should be "his instincts were always for the visual arts" or "his instincts were in the visual arts".
    As to blank 2, my teacher says that the answer is "proper" but I often see "the right thing" instead.
