okay, emotional logic is a bad title. how about emotional rationality? i've recently read a study in which "rational thought" was shown to be a result of cooperatively using the limbic systems and the anterior cingulate cortex (basically meaning between emotional centers of the brain and 'logical' areas). apparantly the age old belief that totally rational behaviour would be a result of firings in the 'logically' thinking areas in the brain is wrong. to make a decicion anymore complex than the most basic decicions we need to employ the emotional centers of the brain to prioritize, modivate, and provide a form of inductive logic in which past emotional reactions to success/failure are utilized to make rational decicions about what to do. just thought it would be worth noting. probobly a lot of you already know this.
