If you had to choose between having a good brain and a good heart - Which would you choose?
good brain, then you can have good heart later because it is easier to have good heart. Good brain is partly genetic, so you don't have a choice, but you can improve of oourse
First I need have a good heart to be worthy of possessing a good brain. By having a good heart you can afford to use a good brain. Otherwise, it won't serve any purpose in a productive way. Am I right ?
i don't exactly understand what you mean by good heart or good brain.
We do say good heart, but off course everything happens in the brain, so when your thinking is good, i.e you have good moral standards and you follow them then we call that being good at heart. everything originates in the mind.
okay...well considering i need both to stay alive, i would choose both. however, if i have to choose one, i just need to ask a few questions before answering. when you say choosing a good brain or heart, then that would still mean i would still have both right? Even if either one wasn't working properly, and the other was, then i would still have them though right? after all, the body can't function without either one.
Always choose good brain. Not heart. As in your heart all type of emotions are there but in your mind you can take logical decisions.
It depends.In case of choosing a friend or partner-I prefer someone with good heart.
A good brain.
Why? Because a good heart will do their best to comfort a friend in pain and dying from cancer.
A good brain belonging to a cold person can still relieve that pain and even cure that person.
I love good brain. Though good heart is tasty, too - so it's a tough call, most likely depends on how you cook them
unfortunately, i have a much better heart than brain. My husband is the brainy one, so together we do well..... I always wish i had a better grasp of learning, but it has always been difficult for me.
I'll choose to have good heart as i always believe that having a good kind heart, you can change the people around you and perhaps making a positive change to their lives.
good heart, brain can be cultured and improved but heart can't be. you can ask for suggestion from other but there's no way out to borrow a heart.
good heart, its better to not learn anything and stay at home than die painfully and let your family down
Come to think of it; a really good brain would by definition see the value of a good heart, and would therefore induce its creation. That way you get both.
I disagree. This is where most of our problems originate. We seem to think that supporting good brains (with on regard to whether they are good hearts) to reach their full potential is some kind of a noble cause. Who invented nuclear weapons and the like? Stupid good brains I think.
I like the good brain, but I would say good heart
because you need to be good to be a good person and to go to heaven!
A good loving heart that is considerate and compassionate of others. Perhapes those in Wahington could use a good heart insead of the brain they have.
A good heart for sure - this is what dictates whether your life will be happy or miserable whether your inner light bulb is bright or dim.
Well If I've got a good heart I can work on the brain through studies! So I will take the good heart!
I do not agree with Will-be-expressed that everything originates in the brain. The brain is one more of our bodily organs. I suspect that it orginates very little. Rather, it can be likened to a extremely complex switchboard that allows our 'mind' (that nebulous, indefinable aspect so many of us think of as ourselves) to manifest registable thoughts through the physical body, e.g. talking, writing, drawing, etc..
But to get back to good brain or good heart? The question in itself has generated a lot of answers if only because the word 'good' can be interpreted in different ways (a somantic problem) moral, or physically healthy? I think the majority interpreted how the questioner probably meant it to be as: 'a kind, loving person - a person with a generous and forgiving disposition.' And I have to concur with most of their opinions, a good heart is far more important than a good brain. For a good heart, in this instance, IS the man or woman, i.e. the part of them they'll take with them when they leave 'Planet Earth' at their earth-life's end.
I have written quite a bit on the subject of intelligence. I have an interesting history in that regard: when I entered schooling as a young child, I was initially classified as retarded. A few years later, I was reclassified as "genius". Not just genius but omigod-off-the-charts genius. Quite a shift, let me tell you :-)
I suppose because of that I became interested in the testing and qualification of intelligence, with particular regard to the extremely bright - those who TEST that way, that is. That "test" part is important, but that's a subject for another day.
Whatever it is that gives me and others like me our "abilities" at those tests isn't necessarily a gift. It's often much more of a curse, separating you from other people because you can't understand them and they can't understand you. The mind that can whip through a "don't worry, nobody finishes these" test in half an hour doesn't work like the rest of the world. Not at ALL.
The differences interfere with normal human relationships. That's why super-geeks congregate together in very small groups - they can't stand normal people and normal people can't stand them. It's isolating and it's not healthy. Many extremely bright people are also extremely unhappy.
Fortunately, I realized that fairly early and have worked hard to become "normal". I haven't succeeded entirely, I'm still a very odd duck indeed, but I have gotten better. Much better, and I am far happier for it. Very happy, in fact. Maybe not so "wicked smaht" today, but happy as a clam and that's a better place to be.
Being wicked smaht is no asset. I'd take the "good heart" any day.
I'd take the "good heart" any day.
I copied it from Pcunix,
But it is a bonus if I am a little bit intelligent
A little bit is great. Smarter than the masses, but still able to interact with them.
I'm going to write a another hub about this, maybe tomorrow because I have to go earn some money today.
Habee's note about the Newt could be very, very true. I don't really intend to get into politics in that hub, but I think I can touch on that a bit too.
This reminds me of a description I just read about Newt: big brain, small heart. lol

Which is better - or worse - to fake liking someone, to be clear about it or to avoid the person?There are various ways to deal with that which are more civilized, or humorous, or just plain mean. Is there a better way?
