Sunday Poser # 126 – Logical or emotional?

Welcome back to another Sunday Poser

This week my question is;

Are you a person with a logical way of thinking or an emotional one?

I am mostly a logical thinker. I can get emotional but less often. It’s the way my brain is wired and I think it’s the same for us all. We are born with certain traits and we either built upon them or try to change them to be more useful in our lives.

For me, being logical and practical is more useful. Being emotional can mess up my day as it makes me more attuned towards thinking negative thoughts. Though I’m sure it’s not the same for everyone.

Emotional people are more artistic and creative, while logical minds are more practical and perhaps good at solving problems.

So what is your bend of mind; Practical and logical, or artistic and emotional?

Please share your thoughts in the comments section or you can write your own post and link it to this one so that I can find it.

As usual, thanks of visiting and reading.

  1. Logical except when I’m emotional. Depends whom I encounter, the time of day, what I ate for breakfast, what I read on the internet.
    But when posting on my blog I’m very artistic. Or so the commenters tell me. But of course most of them are not very logical.

    I rarely write long comments unless I’m feeling emotional.

  2. I probably am both at different times, or within seconds I can change. Mostly I feel I’m being logical, even if my responses to things seem to be emotional. Or maybe things I say or do seem illogical to others, and emotional, but to me I’m being what I feel is logical. It’s confusing! haha 🙂

  3. A logical person for sure! I don’t know how to control my emotions, I feel sorry when I let the emotions take over, lots of mistakes I’ve done because of emotions. I’m using poetry as an open gate for my emotions, but after done I lock the gate and back to the logical person. I think it’s save to be logical in this world.

  4. I am emotional but don’t allow it to rule. Emotions are natural and good for the most part but they do need to be controlled to some extent so logic can have its say to keep things in check.

  5. Interesting statement: “Emotional people are more artistic and creative, while logical minds are more practical and perhaps good at solving problems.”

    I’m not sure I fully agree. M.C. Escher was a mathematician and was certainly logical in many of his thought processes, but he was definitely creative and artistic. Not to mention, true problem solving requires a good bit of creative thinking as well.

    1. I agree with you. I think it would be true if a person is on the extreme spectrum of either states. Most of us are a combination of both, with one side more dominating than the other.


  6. I think you hit on something here Sadje, our emotions do tend to send us into a tail spin.
    While logical keeps us treading water, rising above that negative quagmire.
    But as you say both have pluses 🙂

  7. I don’t think anybody is 100% logical or emotional, but we are all some combination of the two. In a perfect world, Logic wins the day, but ours is not a perfect world and humans operate largely based on the emotion of the moment.
