    Which guides you more, your head or your heart?

    My head, thankfully, since it use to be my heart that ruled me. Too many people hurt you using your heart but of course for the needy and ones who have no one you heart should always speak to your heart and of course mine does.

    My heart as I go with the feeling. It is like gut's feeling when comes to decision as my heart guides me with the right answer.

    Neither one.It is my spirit within me that connects with reality and have intelligence.You speak about 2 different things here,materialism and spirituality.One have DNA and the other one don't.One is supernatural and the other one is not.Personality is spiritual and cannot be determine by material equations.The heart pumps blood and the physical head have no say-so in the matter.

    My head. I try to analyze situations from a set of principles.

    My Gut!  Many times I will make a final decision based on my gut feeling.  Maybe this could be equated to the heart, but it is usually after I've taken both the emotional and logical aspects have been taken into consideration.

    About 60% heart and 40% head. So far, I have very few regrets.

    My head guides me more than my heart when it comes to dating.  I want to look at the situation with common sense before I get too serious about someone.

    I would say my head, though I allow my heart to take over most of the time, even when I know its not worth it. I guess the latter is a bit of a reckless streak that I have been born with and can't seem shake off.

    Interesting, my head leads then my heart steps in taking charge.

    It depends upon the situation and circumstances. However, mostly now my head.

    I would say my heart (in its own way) rules me. But I would say that the heart vs. head paradigm is a bit polarized. Intelligent, reasonable people can disagree on the best course of action to take in a given situation; and caring, loving people can disagree among themselves about the best tact to take in x situation.

    Work in the neurosciences has turned up the fact that emotion is needed to power the brain to make any kind of decision, whether one thinks she is being "logical" or largely "emotional" or "sentimental."

    I remember hearing, on NPR, a story about a man who had undergone brain surgery, and a part of the brain largely responsible for governing the emotions was removed. Now, ostensibly he became a creature of pure logic. After the procedure he would be shown pictures of horrible, gut-wrenching scenes, and all that, and they would elicit absolutely no response from this man.

    Now, because of this deficiency, he ended up losing his high-powered corporate job. For example, he would spend hours trying to decide whether to sign a contract with the blue or the black pen (this question is outside the province of logic). At some point you have to "emotionally" say to yourself Just go for it, just do it. Make a decision, any decision!"

    I try to listen to both, but in a tie, my heart wins.

    Both.  They almost always agree for me.  My feelings are linked to my rational thoughts

    Decisions made from the "heart" is made with the head.
    Your question is really asking the same thing.

    Which guides you more, your head or your head?

    My heart. My mind often plays tricks on me. While my heart shows me the truth. If you rely solely on your mind, you will be angry and disappointed because you will have a need to know everything with out reason. The mind hates, the hearts loves.

    I try to follow this wisdom. “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” (Mahatma Gandhi). This has helped me to make the correct decisions that I know in my heart is the right thing to do. great question!
