    It makes sense and I like things that make sense.

    Because we like the feeling thinking evokes in us.

    I don't like being wrong. Being strong in values cuts the fluidity of being able to avoid being wrong in the first place.

    Because I use primarily logic and objective criteria when making decisions. Simple as that.

    Thinking = Sane. Rationality. Calmness. Explainable. Predictable. Brainy Intelligence. Get Things Done.
    Feeling = Insanity. Vulnerability. Tears. Hysteria. Sadness. Madness. Lost. Loneliness. Irrational. Weak. Don't Get Things Done.

    The above are, of course, false as we are humans and humans are capable of both thinking and feeling at the same time even when we psychoanalyze the crap out of everything in a systematic, explanatory way. We are still mostly 'feeling'. But there is this illusion that there is a coherent separation and sometimes I also pretend I am a robot even when feelings are churning within me deep deep down.

    I can detach easily but it will catch up with me at some point.

    Because I have a tendency to weigh my own and others emotions as solid information that needs to be taken into account.

    You're a feeler. You don't prefer thinking over feeling. You technically can't even answer this question as it doesn't apply to you.

    Yeah, true, I've been a bad boy. Anyway, I prefer feeling ... because I have a tendency to weigh my own and others emotions as solid information that needs to be taken into account.
