Brain or heart?
In a difficult situation you prefer to go by brain or heart?
Reason behind your decision?
My brain always. Emotional decisions are almost never good ones. The few I have made in my life all resulted in negative situations. So I learned my lesson and stick with rational thought.
Thanks @peeples for your reply.
I hope you can lead your life most rational way and you never face anymore negative situation in life.
Best wishes always.
I would have to agree with you, peeples. Emotional decisions are usually the worst ones! Our brain is a smart way of thinking.
Thank you @ Cristale
For your kind response.
Wish you all the very best for a smart life ahead:-)
It depends in what situation I am, most of the time I go with my Brain and take well balanced decision. I believe decisions taken by heart looks good at that particular moment but are not good in long term.
You forgot the gut! DYK that stomach has as much neurons as a cat's brain?
So I say brain........braaaaaiiiiiiinnnnnnnsssssss!
There are times we must use our brains(common sense and will to survive) in order to overcome a challenge rather than our hearts which tell us to help, share, care and give of our selves. When we are able to give and use our hearts as a guide, we are usually better for it in many ways and this is what defines the human spirit. It is this spirit that keeps us alive and living on to make a future for our own kind. This spirit or energy form of goodness comes from our Creator, our God and He means for us to live in His ways by the spirit we each have from within.
For technical issues, I use my brains and my heart for things that has to do with the divine and nature.
Brain because, then you are able to think rationally. Feelings mess you up in the end, and are only there "for the moment", but thinking logically and rationally will remain forever. It's better to go with the brain.
But only with brain sometimes world becomes colorless. In case of a difficult situation a reasonable thinking is preferable but many times a decision by heart also proves to be right and rewarding.
Anyway thank you very much for your precious respons
Using the brain is a lonely experience. Without the heart, there is no reason to exist. You will just remain an empty yet breathing being. Using just the heart, is entirely horrifying. Think of women who throw themselves at men they believe they love and then get run over in the end. They only trust their heart and not their mind. I can't stand those people!
The brain nor the heart can produce intelligence my friend. It is a SPIRITUAL MATTER.
The brain and the heart have a material explanation that include DNA, elements,cells, ions,atoms and matter.
SPIRITUALITY is define under the invisible ,the supernatural, the intellect of spirit,the conduct, and........ CHOICE.
Walls do not talk. It is parallel with the belief in the heart and the brain as a source of communication and intellect of spirit.
A PROPHECY is fulfill today concerning the prophecy of the ANGEL to the Prophet Daniel in Daniel 12 v 4 in that " they shall run to and fro,and knowledge shall be increase".
But he spoke not about a material increase,but,a SPIRITUAL INCREASE of knowledge. He spoke about knowledge beyond scientific and technical equations.
Spirituality of its full intent was not PREDESTINED to come about until now.
Science put everything in one basket without separation nor inclusion of a SPIRITUAL concept.
What is unseen is more powerful that what is seen.
But practically is it always that a decision is taken by brain ?
Then world would have been heaven as none would have sinned.
Spirituality can also be seen through some rarest care and humanity in this world towards less privileged one.
It really depends on what part of your brain you mean. People who are emotional actually are "going by brain;" however, the issue is it is manifesting from their amygdala; an emotional area of our brain. You can actually train yourself to act on your decisions with significantly less emotionality by delaying your reaction and enhancing your contemplation phase before reacting. It is indeed, usually wise not to discount the outcome from focusing on what I would call your proverbial "heart" for more than one reason. First it allows you more time to contemplate/ponder and secondly to follow your "heart" usually is quite an uplifting experience.
It will be both.
My brain will process how to tackle the difficult situation and my heart will decide the final decision.
You cant live without either so maybe it should be a mixture of both.
Most people would say they can do both but reality its so hard to choose. How many times do we have to compromise our convictions of thought when we make decisions? either way the result is that the pain equates with it too. Love, Work, everything. We keep making more decisions, with brain and heart , alternately. Sadly our brain cannot compensate too much memories of decision making. So my guess is that we do think and use our heart alternately.
I'm sentimental, emotional and sometimes a mess if I let my heart rule. So in situations where it really matters I let my brain take over.
Your heart doesn't make decisions it's only a muscle
All decisions come from your brain although making certain decisions like moving away from family or allowing your pet to be put down can truly break your heart.
I didn't think with my brain the day I put my pet down.
It was all heart. It was truly one of the worst decisions I had to make.
My brain though went through grief.

How do you follow your heart?I had a young girl, out of the blue, ask me that the other day through the drive-in window at McDonald'sI gave her what I've found in life on the matter, but I think it's an interesting question, and I'd like to hear your thoughts on this.How do you follow your heart?

Today when we talk about the heart as the seat of emotion we do so metaphorically. Human beings learned long ago that the brain is where emotions, memories and thoughts are contained. However we still have the figurative language so that people don't always talk about the brain or mind they...

What was the most difficult ethical decision you've ever made?I probably should say the "most difficult ethical decision" that you are comfortable to share because certain decisions concerning ethics we are unwilling to even talk about. If you unwilling to share your own experience, you...
