Which would you say you let lead you; the passion of your heart or the logic of your mind?
I take both into account. It depends on what the issue is at the time. Business wise I always follow logic. Emotionally I tend to follow my heart.
I had a security business for 18 years along with another business I was running at the time. I was also bringing up two babies at the same time and on my own.
Logic has to take control I believe even when your heart is telling you otherwise.
I think it all depends on the situation and the potential impact on yourself and others.
It has to be a fair share of both though, otherwise you can end up with problems..
Quite a logical answer there
The passion of my heart leads me. Logic is of the mind but core truth comes straight from the heart. The mind likes to over analyze and pick apart. The heart already knows the answer. Once we can still the mind and reach inward the best way is always found. When we exist in our heart center we automatically align with our higher awareness.
Great thoughts first thing in the morning! Thanks for this.
I think it is a balance of the two. A person can be passionately wrong about something, and make a mistake while thinking they are doing the right thing. Basing actions solely on logic can be cold and calculating and without the passion, again be wrong. Best to find a balance of the two as a whole person. Finding the balance is called experience.
I would prefer the combination of both - my heart and my mind.
But first preference will go to the heart.
Most of the important decisions I have taken in life were taken with all of the passion I had inside.
I follow my heart always, even if I know this could get ugly. I'm a risk taker, using logic when I have to solve a problem, because things got ugly.
I want to FEEL alive instead of THINK how to prevend myself from falling. I always find my way back, by my passionate believe, life is worth living.
For me it is a combination of both, but more importantly I follow the guidance of God and His Holy Spirit.
It's always been my head. Never love with your heart, they say.
I'd say that primarily logic, but there are always situation where my heart will veto my head.
My heart gets me into trouble, so I try to listen with my mind and follow logic. There are some things in life a person should not overlook just because their heart is telling them something different. That is a recipe for disaster. Using my logic keeps me out of compromising situations and drama.
What is in your heart is the spirit of man. The mind, will and emotions is the soul of a man. The way I see it is, my child came into this world not knowing anything. He looks to his parents for food, shelter, provision, and guidance. He has no idea the perils that the world has for him without those things in place and does quickly learn to stay close to home to be safe. Even animals know to do this; however, we know animals have died in the hierarchy of the jungle - oddly enough this is also true with human life.
nevertheless, humans think one way as a child and completely different as adults. That which I believed as a teen is completely different int he way I think now. Therefore, my mind, will and emotions will change. My heart is steadfast in the principles of Christianity. Trusting in the only God that created all. Seeing that He knows all and sees all, it would be to my best interest in trusting in Him. I can only do that with my heart.
Both your mind and your heart always have a part to play. You may wish that one part had a different view but it pays to take note of both.

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

Who can post the best argument about the existence or the non-existence of God and can support their answers using real logic? Don't use faith based logic when proving the existence of God.

People often ask the question: Should I follow my heart or my mind? Well aren't they one in the same? Or does one lead the other in making some decisions? If one leads the other, is it our heart that leads, or is it our mind? Some will say it depends on the situation--and this may be very true...

Is wisdom a thing of the mind, or a thing of the heart?Is wisdom associated with ones heart or is it associated with ones brain? Are we wise if we use our brain in dealing with day to day activities or wiser if we use our heart? What does our human funds of knowledge have to say here?
