Perception and feeling direct people.
In addition to (cognitive) perception, feeling is the second pillar that controls the human being - which is usually stronger.
Feelings are formed on the basis of goals. They range from fine-tuning (to accomplish something exactly) to violent urge (when the brain classifies it as eminently important), and are often stronger than the mind, and it's hard to resist – as everyone knows.
Feelings can blind you completely.
The midpoints create a world tuned to the goal. This generates corresponding feelings that more or less urge to satisfy the goal.
Emotions are therefore dependent on the goals in the brain.
If you have wrong goals in yourself, even wrong, mostly unhealthy feelings are generated.
Emotions can control people very well. Therefore, everything he does, experiences, etc. is accompanied by feelings.
In everyday life one is dependent on his perceptions. These show us the world through the goals in the brain. This then also affects the following feelings: They are, with respect to wrong goals, not properly tuned to the world.
If, for example, the gut feeling says, one or the other should decide one way or the other, then you can not often register later that you had made a wrong decision.
But it is true that the feelings are usually right. So, it is not so easy to discover wrong feelings. But if it is about something very important, then it would be good to keep the words above mentioned and to turn thinking. This simultaneously activates the consciousness that what the emotions want can be looked at more intensely with intensified senses. And this gives the brain the opportunity to revise its decision.
One experiences again and again feelings, which say one hundred percent, this or that is absolutely correct and in order and one want to lead there. However, if you are not an expert in the field (but sometimes, if you are an expert), you may need to critically question these feelings. For the less you know about a thing, the more the feelings can delude you creatively.
The brain makes its own, sometimes strange, interpretations, thereby misleading people.
Depending on the value of the goal, feelings can be very strong. Especially if a substantial value has to be given up. For example, when you mourn.
Here an old goal has to give way to a new one, namely the insight that something is no longer there, which one loved. The old goal produces tears, pain, because it cannot be reached anymore.
So, when you're sad, experiencing the range of emotions, it's always down to an unattainable goal. This works until you have resigned yourself to it.
