In a short theory, I think everyones thoughts can be summed into logic, faith, and self-awareness. I believe some of our minds operate mostly on logical thought while some operate more on faith. I believe self-awareness is a 3rd person perspective to view and analyze how your individual thoughts work.
So, let's say that the logical thought comes from the left side of the mind, faith comes from the right and self-awareness is in the middle.
Do you think mostly based on logic, faith, or both with self-awareness?
Which minds are more at ease, those that are more logical, or those that are more faithful?
This probably sounds like a cop out answer, but I think both a logical and faithful mind.
My thinking is illogical and I believe in God but do not say I think with a faithful mind. I have faith but it doesn't dictate my every day movement. I suppose I think with an ironists mind. =/
The faithful ones are more at peace in their immediate surroundings, but the logical with the world as a whole.
Usually logical. Occasionally I know I must have faith and let things be. And almost always with self awareness (but I do surprise myself a lot).
Logical most of the time, I think most men think this way while most women allow their emotions to dictate the way they think. There are of course exceptions as always when the human element is involved.
I doubt anyone who says they are only one or the other.
Logic helps to ensure you are making the correct choice, but faith can help guide your decisions when there is no way to know for sure. Logic is more reliable, and therefore should be the first mental process, so that is my progression in thought process.
For example: If I'm thinking logically, I am unemployed and should be looking for a job. I am relying on faith that my intelligence and determination are enough to make a living online. I suppose, though, that I am self-aware enough to know that I am not making the most logical choice and need the faith in myself to pull it off.
*hoping this thread doesn't turn religious*
This was a great comment as well as all the others. I wouldn't say "no one" is one way or the other unless I knew absolutely everyone. I do agree it is unlikely that there is someone completely one way or the other. Excellent examples on using logic, faith, and self awareness.
Being that we are all varying blends of anima and animus, some lean more towards logical thought processes, others faith, & yet others are more self aware in their thinking (at least in the framework introduced by the question). I'm more of a blend of all three, being mercurial in nature it's subject to change moment to moment.
faith could also be described as perseverance, which religious and atheists both use.
There's no such thing as a fact until we agree it exists.0 is a point of reference.The first number is 1 but there is no proof so we must agree to use it as our mathematical base,thats faith,we believe it to be so without proof.Math is the ultimate Logic but its based on a leap of faith that 1 is a fact.Unprovable facts do exist.Ask the question"Do thoughts exist"?When logic becomes singular in nature we use faith to carry on.
Sometimes what seems logical is illogical.Some things must be weighed.An example is discipline in the classroom. Occasionally, a student may decide to be disruptive. Ignoring the disruption is illogical; and dealing with it may be illogical too as it takes away valuable time from the lesson. The disruptive individual hopes for such a response Acting in faith can fail too.Not everything is superficial.Some situations demand discernment and analysis; and the answer may be a combination of logic and faith or neither.One person who always complained about being tired was shocked when I revealed 'being tired' resulted from depression.She laughed and wanted to know how I knew that information.I did not know.
logical....never fails! having faith can only involve certain situations

Is your belief based on faith, logic, or both?Can a person be logical if they have an illogical belief or faith?

It seems to come up so often, as if faith and logic were mortal enemies. Can you please explain why you see it that way? If you see the opposite, why?Quite frankly, I have NO problem with it.

I believe that a creator could be logical until I am proven different, however I'm not absolute, absolute would be content. There are many things that can't be defined with logic.It would be logical to say that I was...

...furthermore, He is behind the logical aspect of the world. In other words, He invented logic! We merely discovered / uncovered it!

There is no scientific and logical evidence of self existence of universe, therefore,only logical conclusion is the creator of universe not proving its self existence .

So many Atheists and Agnostics refute faith/religion with living by logic and reason. But, to be really honest, it is totally impossible.What do you say?
