  • The heart thinks in the moment but the brain thinks ahead.
    If you'll constantly be living in the moment, there will come a time when you will not make it in to the future - something you can only do if you think through every passing moment, instead of jumping in to them, hoping that none of them won't be a pit to fall in to.

  • I choose brain. Emotions can really cloud good judgment. The best is when you make a good choice and your heart gets rewarded by it.
    Ex. People (girls and guys) should stop choosing to date people that aren't nice to them. Our hearts can tell us how much we care about them and how we'll be so sad if we lose them. Meanwhile our brains are screaming that this person is not good news. When you choose to date someone great, your heart will thank you for it.

  • generally your brain. it's more rational and rational thought typically keeps you out of trouble

    however i think at times you do have to let your heart decide. but even then it should be balance of following the heart while the brain leads to you make the decision after careful consideration

  • I feel it's best to listen to both, because both will have valid feelings and points of view you need to be logical but also emotional, especially when dealing with things regarding boyfriends/girlfriends and the like.

    But this more or less varies depending upon the situation and who or what your dealing with.

  • Brain. Your heart can make you do crazy things and your brain will advise you against it. Always listen to reason.

  • Your brain.
    Listening to your heart = Not always thinking straight, and doing what feels right, in the moment.
    Listening to your brain = Thinking logically, weighing the pros and cons, and coming to a decision based on those pros and cons.

  • Your heart will lie to you. My heart has wanted some of the worst things. But the heart is necessary. If you can combine your heart, brain, and instincts, you will find the man for your life. If any of those things is in disagreement, then it is the wrong choice.

  • "Your gut is smarter than your head" -me

    Brain = Logic
    Heart = Emotion
    Gut = Intuition/Instinct

    You never actually forget anything that you experience, but your memory recall might be poor. That's when your instincts take over and give that little "feeling" or voice in the back of your head, just a "knowing" of what is right or wrong.

  • Both, but when my logic prevails, it usually tells me Not to do something, therefore I have less to remember than when I follow my heart and it takes the wheel. Good or bad, I usually remember the heart!

  • That's a hard one...
    Always follow your heart and you might end up in sticky situations. Emotions can make you do stupid things...
    but always follow your brain and the risk is you might end up pretty unhappy, regretting many past decisions.
    I tend to always consider both when making a decision. And in some cases, it's pretty obvious wether to use your brain or heart.

  • I would say your brain. Your heart might deceived you and sometimes it leads to bad decisions.
    When you use your brain, the chances of making a good and smart decision are high.

  • The heart results in a happier but riskier choice, whilst the brain results in a reliable but possibly boring choice.

  • I hate these kind of predicaments. I dont like how my heart leads to me to a blind fall but i dont like how my head assume a lot of things too. Honestly both have to work together to get what we want for ourselves. If my heart wants more than my head then no. If my head wants more than my heart then no. I usually find a way what my heart n my mind wants :).

    • @Djaaaaaay I didn't say I was beyond dumb, just my heart. That's why I tend to listen to my brain more often than my heart.

    • Opinion owner. If you would have spoken from your heart instead , you would have given me a better more meaningful reply.

    • Opinion owner. Feelings change for a reason , the brain then try's to ration the reasoning why.

  • Your brain, because it shows reasoning, which is important when it comes to decision making, and about anything else.
    Our professor told us emotions destroy thinking/logic, hence when emotions take over, we can not think properly.
