Emotion
Reacting to life's scenarios (good and bad) with emotionally is an interesting way of being. For the most part, your basing your reactions on happiness, anger, love, lust, zeal, depression, despair, etc. This can lead to a path of mixed emotions. However, you always follow what you feel is right internally.

Pros
-You go what with you feel -You follow your heart most of the time

Cons
-You go through life with constantly mixed emotions -Your emotions can cloud proper, clear judgment with consequences

This is me!

Right or wrong this is how I am. Impulsive, compassionate and very emotional and although it may not be the best way to be I'm glad I'm me.

I care a lot, I throw caution to the wind at times and let my heart rule my head. I've made some bad decisions in life but I've come through a better person and let's face it even using logic people still make bad decisions. I have to vote for who I am, emotional but never boring!

Logic
Reacting to life's scenarios (good or bad) with logic, generally, involves tackling it as if it were a maze to finish. Persistent, strong-minded people with a leadership mentality tend to attack life's situations with logic. People like this usually ignore emotional strings and pulls, relying solely on intellect and logical reasoning. It does, however, remove a human characteristic which is life's natural feeling of sense.

Pros
-Deductive conclusions towards life's situations -Makes life choices primarily from a mathematical perspective

Cons
-Numb to the sense of feeling and emotions -Tends to be unrelatable to people from an emotion basis.

Logic over emotion

Our emotions are strange things. We can find ourselves becoming hugely emotional over something but then when logic kicks in, you can deduce that your emotions are overreacting. That's when you need to use your head to say to yourself, you know what, I don't need to be so emotional about this. I can think my way out of this rather than trying to feel my way out of it. And left unchecked, your emotions really can get the better of you. And if you left it up to your emotions all the time to deal with situations, you'd probably still be there right now! Sometimes you have to use your logic to think, hang on, this isn't really productive for me, this isn't really helping me or those around me to be this way. Sure, it's good to have heart and soul. It's good to feel things, for things, for people. But at the end of the day, you need to be able to think, oh well, life goes on! You know? :)

Logic

I always try to use logic over emotion whenever I'm making a decision. From my experience, a decision made almost solely on emotion rather than logic is something I'll come to regret.

I think it's important that if you're overwhelmed by emotion, to take a step back and analyze the situation and your options before you made a decision, whatever it may be. Sleep on it. It'll probably be the best decision you make. Clearing your head of the emotions will help you make a more informed decision.

Logic

If humans reacted to everything through emotion we would be nowhere near as far as we've come. We would have no rules because everyone would react to a situation depending on how they felt. Like if someone just felt like they wanted to kill him and the Judge felt like the person should be able to kill him. Or people all together felt like they didn't need a government or felt like they did not have to pay for someone else's food. With logic, everything is more or less binary and was thought out to work a certain way to assure order and balance.

Best way to go

Problems are best solve in a logical sense as you are looking at the problem for what it is and deciding the most logical solution to the problem, no pressure.

Vulcans rule the day

Emotion based decisions are not always in your best interest. It takes a combination of head and heart to live in the real world, and using just one or the other is not usually the way to go. You can make decisions not in your best interest, if you use one or the other exclusively. I am going to say common sense or logic should rule over emotions, based on my life experience.

Logic

If everyone made decisions based on their emotions rather than logic, then we would be in a lot of trouble. People tend to forget about consequences when making decisions based on emotion and only think about what they want to achieve in that instant. Unfortunately, many actions have long lasting consequences and that's why it's important to have a logical frame of mind when making decisions. Although I don't think decisions should be made solely based on either emotion or logic, I think that a combination of the two with logic being the main deciding factor would be best.

I'm always logical

Maybe when I was younger I used to try and follow my heart in everything I do but soon learned that making all my decisions on a basis of emotion can lead to unforeseeable outcomes and not always good ones. I Then started thinking my decisions through a bit more and I have to say that logic always works better if you want to have success in the things you do.
