    Default NT's, you are summoned yet again.

    When does making decisions with emotions fit better than reason in the eyes of NT's, if at all?

    I've never found emotional thinking to be better than logical thinking.

    A: "Between a starving prostitute and a steak sandwich."

    Q:How would a mathematician capture an elephant?
    A:He would build a cage, step inside, and rename his new location as "outside."

    When you're ill.

    For example, let's say that I know I should write my essay today instead of next week when it's almost due. If I'm currently hungover, I won't do my best work today.

    It'd be best to go along with how I felt and save it until I recover, in order to DO better.

    Needless to say, I get 'sick' a lot.

    Yes, but you're still thinking logically when you make those decisions.

    Though it's logical he is using his emotions as a guide.

    A process can be logical and include an emotional base; I would just be concerned with the volatile nature that can occur with an emotional base.

    Perhaps some of my strongest values will takeover my mind for the decisions I make. Introverted feeling, I would guess. It may prevent me from doing certain things with a lack of ethical value no matter how rational it would seem.

    So perhaps this question needs to be re-worded... When do values overcome reason?

    Whenever the values are strong enough to overcome reason. The values tend to stay. So as long as my decisions to not contradict my strongest values, my emotions will not overcome my general thought process.

    So it's a threshold of sorts?

    Makes sense.

    Any examples of that occuring?
