Yes, but you can't and shouldn't completely separate the two. As if reasonable thinking was somehow inherently superior to emotions. To be a fully-functioning, well rounded human being you need both. Working together.

.... But I like how my brain separates the two...

I am surrounded by damn teens with damn teen problems 6 hours a day, 5 days a week.

Reason and emotion being separate helps me to not get involved when they bitch about their dumb arse problems.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

I said emotions, not overemotionality. Huge difference. Tongue


Separating them to an extent is normal. But both need to be taken into account when forming opinions and making decisions.
