    *shakes head in dismay* In the first place, the emotions that we conceptualize to "come from the heart", do not come from the "heart" itself... Our emotions entirely come from the mind... The hypothalamus of our brains, to name... Obviously, the mind controls the heart since it is solely what discerns our emotions... What you think is what you feel, so what you think that you feel is what you really think...

    Honestly, it depends on the person, and what type of person that they are, and what type of life they lived.

    Me, Its most likely the heart.

    I choose both because sometimes the heart can make you choose the wrong thing (think ppl who choose to stay with an abusive partner because they love them) I mean over all I usually go with my heart too.... but only after debating the issue in my head

    Yeah it is a metaphor but it sure beats listening to your liver which is what people used to believe was the location of emotions

    Really? I've always been told the advisary uses whichever one will be effective with that person. That's why listening to both is so important. One or the other can be decieved at a give time but decieveing both at the same time...... I can understand why you would be confused, I would be too.

    well the mind and the heart/soul both are apart of your will your heart can overpower the mind and vice versa but they work together to make will

    Haha... Very well said jaderabbit-kun! It's a fact in itself... Indeed, I agree greatly... The heart is just for overly optimistic people that rely to much on human will... It's really very disappointing that most would choose the heart over the mind... The reality is that we control ourselves and our lives through what we think... Our actions depend upon what our mind processes... So why the need to rbase oursleves on the weakness of the heart? Very "disheartening", the answers of some...
