    Default Art that invokes emotion or art that invokes thought?

    Which do you prefer?

    ^ True - of the best art, that is.
    Edit to add: As a sentient being, I prefer art that engages my mind as well as emotions, as sentience doesn't begin/end with either. It is great when you can get to the one aspect indirectly by appealing directly to the other, but I confess I cannot choose a preference of starting points at this time.

    I tend to lean to thought, since art that invokes emotion seems to me to be the most simple use of technical art skils, wheras thought invoking requires thought.

    Emotion. With me, it's so subtle that I often miss it's presence or fail to identify the particular emotion I'm experiencing. So it's pure bliss when something (art, music, dance) invokes strong feeling... Possibly many non Fi's take this clarity for granted.

    Funny, as an opposite reaction is precisely the pull. If it weren't for art, I'd be a robot. Especially music. That's a bit of an exaggeration, but the most intense emotions often have an aesthetic origin for me.
