Thought of the day: Why the head needs the heart and vice versa
It's a cliche in film and TV: the cerebral character who doesn't seem to believe in emotions. Or less common, the wild reckless character who never stops to think. I think in situations that seem to demand an overwhelmingly intellectual response, feelings act as a good filter to weed out information. Conversely, when there are a million emotions running through your head, it's a good idea to reach for your brain and trust what it tells you. Not that any of this is new, but I thought I'd share my way of saying it.
