Self-destructive acts often result from reliance on emotional thoughts as opposed to rational ones (emotional mind). On the other hand, too much intellectualization cuts us off from our emotions and may cause us to make decisions without the consideration of our own or others’ feelings (reasonable mind). The optimal mindset is termed wise mind and is a combination of emotional and reasonable minds.
