Do you tend to make decisions from your head or your heart ?
I think I tend to use both my head and my heart, and I also believe that both are important. Using my heart is crucial, because that way I can try to put myself in other people's shoes, or I can use my emotions or gut-feelings. It is also important to listen to your heart to understand what you truly want, or what you truly are more comfortable with, instead of going with the most "reasonable" decision. However, making decisions only from the heart is not very efficient and can also, in some cases, become a problem. Sometimes, when we experience very intense emotions (sadness, love, anger), we might make a decision too quickly without fully realizing its consequences. Therefore, it is also important to use our heads to analyze a situation and the implications, good or bad, of a potential decision. That is why I usually try to use both and to take my time when confronted with an important decision.
