I have to agree with you there. I try not to let my emotions get the best of me when making important decisions. I have two on my mind right now that I have to think through and try to come to a logical conclusion.

I've seen people make logical costly mistakes because they ignored their intuition.

If you mean emotion shouldn't be the major factor in decisions ... yes. But without emotions playing some part, there would be far less charitable giving.
