"@Jason, you ever heard the joke? It goes, "what happens when you assume? You make an ASS out of U and ME. (It's an oldie but goodie.) The few times in my life that I have followed my emotions even though it was more logical NOT to I was…"

"I completely agree that what you deduce and what actually happens may be completely different...but I don't think that means we shouldn't attempt to understand where we are coming from just because we could be wrong. What happens when you…"

"In your example Jason I see what you're saying. What I am saying is that you need to be able to understand both emotion and logic to make sound judgment. Being able to distinguish between the two and being able to deduct your reasoning as to…"

"I think you are confusing an argument from Authority with positions that are purposely refutable. It is a mistake to assume that credentials are the important thing here.  The PHD doesn't mean nearly so much as you seem to think it…"

"They most definitely are against each other or at least can be.   Consider this:  You have just met someone and you instantly feel an attraction to them.  You know you like this person but you also know that if you come on as strong…"

"I might argue that even if "I feel" is used as a stand in, that situation would then be interpreted as the speaker backing emotion over logic because the logic itself isn't enough on it's own. It is interesting that your emotion…"

"@Unseen I'm aware that the phrase isn't always literal.  I should have said that this went on for several days of my visit and was not a one time occurrence.  Even then you are correct to say that the meaning of a phrase…"

"Emotion vs. Reason: I think that this to begin with is a problem. They are not against each other. It's not one or the other...it's both. You need both to make sound decisions."

Unseen replied to Jason Woolsey's discussion 'I feel vs. I think: Basis for decision making'
"In many contexts "I feel" is simply a colloquial way of saying "I think" or "I suppose" or "It seems to me that" and really makes no particular reference to emotion. The word "feel" itself is not…"

Kairan Nierde replied to Jason Woolsey's discussion 'I feel vs. I think: Basis for decision making'
"First, don't assume a person using the phrase, "I feel that/like..." has reached their conclusion through feeling-driven thought. That's just a phrase. "I feel like" is a stand-in for "in my opinion," "I…"

I feel vs. I think: Basis for decision making

Emotion vs. ReasonI once had a conversation with my cousin where she started a lot of her sentences with, "I feel like..." so for instance she would say, "I feel like that answer should have been accepted."This really bothered me and I had to stop her and say, "No one is going to care how you feel in a general conversation especially if reason and rationality are the topics at hand...personally I'm only interested in what you THINK."  I made it clear to her that how she felt was important too…See More
